    Comments about PAPER POTS:

    The paper pot is very easy to fill. It took me some practice to pull just one tissue out and still make the next one coming out look perfect, like a work of art. This pot can be used anywhere. I wish it came in more colors and color combinations.

        Comments about PAPER POTS:

        It was bigger than I thought, but a very cool look and design. We are using it as a tissue holder. I thought I might get one for our living room too as I love the look and the concept, but due to the size I may not as it is a bit big for where I would put it in our living room.

        It is perfect for our kitchen and matches really well with our style and decor.

            Nice product. Makes a great holder for bathroom toilet paper, however it is difficult to use double roll toilet paper. The rolls are too wide for the interior and catch on edges. Use normal size roll.

                I'm the type of person that ends up having rolls of toilet paper next to my bed and occasionally elsewhere in my apartment since I prefer toilet paper to a box of tissue paper when it comes to cold season. This is the perfect solution to hiding all those rolls! Not only does it disguise the toilet paper roll, I think it is actually more attractive and modern than any tissue paper box cover.

                    This was a good buy. I was a little hesitant at first as it seemed to be a little pricey for a tissue box but in the end I realized that i will have it for years to come if not forever. It blends in beautifully with with the vignette I set up

                          Comments about PAPER POTS:

                          As a person with chronically bad allergies, I always need tissues of some sort near. Unfortunately, tissues don't last long in my house and I tend to resort to toilet paper which means that I end up having a roll on my desk, or in the living room or by my bed. This is not an attractive option to be sure, so when I found the paper pot I just had to give it a try. I bought one and was not disappointed! It is nice that it can be used for regular tissues or toilet paper, which makes it a very versatile product. It is sturdy and well made, but it is a little expensive so buying a bunch of them at once wasn't an option for me, but I definitely plan to buy more of them to put around my house.

                                My daughter bought one of these cute little pots in lime green for my birthday. I filled mine with Kleenex and placed it in the bathroom where it's a great decorative touch. It has a clean, shiny look and is quite functional. In fact I've been looking for a tissue box cover for a very long time and had not found anything I liked--until this sweet little pot arrived. I liked it so well, I ordered another one in white for the other bathroom! My only wish is that it could be ceramic or glass instead of plastic.
