Flower Foam Pen Case and Stand - montage of the multi-purpose flower pen and standIt's really fun doing things that have multiple uses. Multipurpose - that's how I call it. So far, in my projects this is the one that has the most uses. At first you will see it as a simple table decoration. You'll see its transformation here.
