A Fun Little Craft Project
If your house is like mine you are always searching for a piece of paper and a pen to jot down messages, notes and ideas. Several years ago I came up with this idea to turn simple ball point pens into something pretty and hopefully not loose so many pens. I simply covered pens with floral tape and added silk flowers to turn them into "flower pens". Then I "planted" them in a clay pot with a bunch of river rocks and whaa laa you're done. Pretty and practical. Not to mention, it's kinda fun writing with a flower. Everyone who comes over to our house always smiles when they see my pot of pens. Since then I have made lots of variations and given these to lots of people as fun little gifts. By the way, teachers love these!!!
I have already made a fun step by step tutorial which I hope to have on my "Crafty Bits & Pieces" page within the next few days. Check back and download it to add to your project folder for a fun project to make or a sweet gift to give.
