15 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!!

Hello, everyone and welcome from Crafty Dreams with Martha! I'm sure you all enjoyed her wonderful project! :)

On the Twelfth Day of Christmas my true love gave to me... Twelve flowers with love notes!





The love notes are saying from three of our Scrappy Moms Stamps sets - Sweet Somethings, Amusing Animals, and For the Boys. These flowers are also PENS! Here's how they are made...

You will need stick pens not "click-top" ones, hot glue and floral tape.

1) Remove the cap on the end opposite the writing point.

2) Cut the stem of the flower short enough to fit into the pen right above the ink container. Put hot glue around and slightly inside the end of the pen. Put your flower in and hold it for a second.

3) Start wrapping the floral tape right beneath the flower - I put a dot of hot glue on the end of the tape to help hold it to the pen while I wrapped.


4) Continue wrapping the floral tape overlapping while you go.



5) When you get to the end put a little hot glue on the end of the tape to secure it.
ALL DONE! You can start using your pen "write" away. :)
Now for the Blog Candy....

I love these pens. I have made some for my girls' teachers, but I never put the stem inside the tube of the pen... I like that idea. I just put it on the outside and wrapped the tape around... looks better your way. Thanks for sharing.
