Flower pens

These are so pretty and easy to make.
I went to Wal-Mart and found these gorgeous PaperMate pens (ink matches the pen) and they write so smooth!

I had a bag full of flowers that were not used and proceeded to take them off the stems.
Remove all the end caps of the pens and hot glue the flowers in.

To make them prettier I also hot glued leaves to the pen barrels and wrapped them either in rhinestones or printed tape.
I'm selling them for $2.00

Best Wishes

My daughter came over to make some centerpieces for a bridal shower. She took various succulent plants and put them in jars and we made signs which we glued on skewers and put them in the pots. She then made a couple banners from cardstock which I do not have a picture of.
The reason I'm preferencing this story is that I then offered to make a card for her with the l eft over cardstock.
Here is what I came up with (this layout matched the plant signs)
The card stock was cut with a couple Sizzix label dies. The heart was from a larger heart set from Spellbinders. Each of these layers are on foam squares.

The sentiment is Sizxix / Tim Holtz, it seemed a little plain so I added some SU pearls.
It was hard to get good pictures as it was after 10:30pm and the little lamp in my craft room is not ideal for pictures.
