Abstract: A pliable paperweight and article holder having an outer skin of soft flexible material defining an enclosed hollow inner cavity having a central portion and a plurality of hollow generally tubular projections integral therewith extending outwardly from the central portion is completely filled with a mass of shiftable heavy granular material. The shiftable heavy granular material and outer skin of soft flexible material act in cooperation to provide a pliable structure capable of being manipulated to hold and grip various articles. When placed either horizontally of vertically on a surface, the central portion will spread somewhat to conform generally to the surface upon which it is placed, and each of the tubular projections can be manually manipulated or bent to assume various positions as desired for holding various objects or for gripping various objects, and the tubular projections will remain in the desired holding or gripping position.
