How to Make Flower Pens
My students (well, maybe not the high school boys) love using them, and my bonus is I get them back at the end of class. As an AP Psychology and Literature and Composition teacher my students have to have ink pens for their essays. I am actually move towards requiring this for all in class writing other than journals. I like this because it prepares them for the AP Exams, but ink really does make it easier to read their in-writing.
First, I collected my supplies. I did this on my deck because the girls were swimming, and it was a gorgeous day. I grabbed blue pens with caps. I like blue because it stands out more than black, and caps are awesome to keep leakage to a minimum.
I used a two inch piece of Washi tape to secure the flower to the end of the pen. This prevents slipping while you wrap it the rest of the way.
Aren’t they fun?
