DIY Decorative Pens

DIY Decorative Pens 001
Here is a fun, easy and fast DIY craft project do with your kids. 

They make great little gifts to give to a teacher or friend. I’m always looking for a pen and this way I will keep track of my own pen better.

You need the RSVP Pens or knock off brand will work too.

Next you need decorative paper.  The smaller the print the better.  I cut strips of each design. Unscrew the pen, roll up your paper around your ink and then slide it in the plastic tube. Screw the top back on and your done.

I made my own decorative paper using images of fabric I liked. I saved the images on my computer and made a collage. You can try saving my collage above to your computer and printing on a full sheet of paper.
That’s it! Super easy that my 8 year old helped.  So many options of themes and colors you could do to make a gift set.  One set of pens was under $3 for the name brand RSVP but, you might find a knock of brand for even cheaper at a discount store.
