*Materials Needed*

*1. Empty shoe box*

*2. Pencils*

*3. Craft knife*

*Step 1: Measuring*

*Measure the approximate maximum diameter of the bangles /bracelets you are going to hang. This determines the spacing between the pencils. In my case, the average diameter of my bangles /bracelets was around 6.5cm, so I took the distance between slits to be 7cm.*

**Step 2: Making the slits**

*The width and height of each slit should be enough to accommodate the pencil comfortably.*

*I have taken the width of each slit to be 0.7cm and the height of each slit to be 1cm.*

*Distance between the wall of the box and slits A and B should be half of the average diameter of your bangle you had measured.*

*So in my case, the distance between the wall of the box and slits A and B was 3.5cm (7cm/2)*

*• Distance between the wall of the box and slits A and B is be 3.5cm.*

*• Distance between A,B and C,D is 7cm*

*• Distance between C,D and E,F is 7cm*

*• Distance between E,F and H,G is 7cm*

*• Distance between the wall of the box and the last slits H and G is be 3.5cm.*

*Make slits on the box with the mentioned spacing using a craft knife.*

*Step 3**: Placing the pencils*

*Now, we are almost done.*

*Place the pencils on the slits you've made and you are good to go!*

**UPDATE:**

*Like Marmaris crafts mentioned, this could also be used to organize ribbons and tapes!*

**Note:**- ·
*You can cover the shoe box with paper or fabric of your choice.* - ·
*You can use rods of any sort instead of the pencil.*
