This creation is for desks. It has a loop on one of the sides to hold rubberbands. Then on the opposite side there is a holder for index cards/ envelopes. Then there are 3 slots on the remaining 2 sides to hold paperclips and so on. Then at the upper part of the holder there you will place pens, pencils, and other stuff too.

Create a step right before outside square on 2 oposite sides. That are 4 lego circles wide.
Step 4: Add Another Step on the First Step.
Since the last step there are 4 lego circles wide, add a 1 lego layer on top of the first step.
