Make your own “Themed” pens
I got this idea from Christy W. from Afton, WY, she sent me the idea to make CTR pens, well I loved the idea and now that I am back in YW, I decide to make up some YW Themed inserts. And then I did some with this years theme, the ideas are endless…….. Scroll down for a few files I have uploaded for you to use.
Here is the directions:
1) After printing the paper, prepare a pen with a clear barrel. You can use a Pentel RSVP pen and unscrewed the bottom. The gold ink on the barrel can be removed with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.They are 12 for $9.00 http://www.staples.com/Pentel-RSVP-Ballpoint-Pens-Medium-Point-Black-Dozen/product_370850?cid=PS:GooglePLAs:Office_Supplies:Pens:370850:BK91-A
Or I found some pens at Staples called ICE breaker ballpoint stick pens. and in the store I paid $5.99 for 12 http://www.staples.com/Staples-Icebreaker-Ballpoint-Stick-Pens-Fine-Point-Black-Dozen/product_807986?externalize=certona They are a little shorter then the others.
2) Roll pen insert around a narrow tube – a skewer works great for this.
3) Carefully place curled insert into pen barrel. Remove and trim if necessary.
4) Screw parts of pen back together.
