I love, love, love, this so much, I made one for myself. It's a basket, wastepaper basket, bucket....whatever you want it to be! I use mine as a trash can/waste basket. Use it as a towel holder for a guest room (see 3rd picture that is for some reason upside-down), or use it as a trash can.

It is made out of recycled magazine pages (pages taken from such magazines as Star, Cosmopolitan, Eddie Bauer, etc., if you must know) that are rolled, glued, then hot glued to a brand new blue/gray plastic can. I added a little pizazz to it by glueing small blue glass beads on the insides of some, but not all, magazine coils. I made this one while watching about nine episodes straight of Desperate Housewives, my favorite show, so this has sentimental value!

The 5th picture tries to show the size of the basket. If you can't tell, it is next to your typical hanging house plant (notice the house plant is dull and dying...anything to make my basket/can look better). Since everything has been not glued, the hot glue is visible if you look really close, so my suggestion is to not look close. :)

Basket is sturdy, however I will include 5 extra magazine coils in case any come off. Some glass beads are not glued; they have been pushed in but are sturdy, so they can be removed. If anything does come off, it's nothing that a little hot glue can't fix! The inside of the plastic can is a little scratched in places from having items placed inside, so the price is a little lower than usual, but it's not too noticeable, for who is going to have their head in there, anyways (unless you use it as a puke bucket)?

Measurements:

Length: 9 inches Width: 8.5 inches

Basket will be shipped in a box with bubble wrap for protection. Thank you so much! Enjoy!
