A fun way to reuse all those old bangles you never wear anymore.
I went through a weird phase about 2 years ago and I was obsessed with bangles. I bought tons of them, but I only wear about 5 of them now.
I thought it was a shame to let all the others sit around in a box so I wanted to find something to use them for.
I always used to stack them on my dresser and when I needed a new pen holder for my desk I decided to get crafty rather than buying one.
After some tinkering the bangle pen holder was born, and the rest is history! ;)
