Lene'e showed us how to make the pens. So easy and such a WOW! Check out her blog.
Here's what you need:
2 1/2" x 12" paper strip (Fold in half and cut strips about 1/16" apart)
1 3/4" x 12"
1 1/4" x 12"
Start by putting sticky tape at the top of your pen. I use the Pentel R.S.V.P pens. You can also add some dsp to the barrel of the pen.
After you cut all of your strips, add snail across the bottom.
Start with the smallest strip first. Roll up whole strip onto your pen. Next roll the 1 3/4" x 12" strip and do the same as the first strip. Then the widest strip, same thing. Add a ribbon around all of the dsp.
I used my bone folder to open up the flower and give it some character. I also used the Corduroy Brad for the center of the flower. I stuck the brad on with a Pop-Up Glue Dot and added a little Crystal Effects to make sure it sticks.
