I made this pen holder for my kid. Since, he has destroyed many pen holders, I feared about that. But now I don't have that fear because if he destroys it I can do another one at lowest cost. I am very happy with this!
We can put light also and use this also as lamp, so it gives a nice effect in the dark.
After making this, I found several other pen stands which are paper-based. Thanks for your inspiration! Let's share our designs together and make something awesome! https://www.instructables.com/id/origami-paper-pen-stand/
