One roll would suffice. It was on the list of supplies for this crafty kitsch!
Last week in Pittsburgh, granddaughter Anna saw a pot of flower pens that Aunt Lala made years ago. They are corny but cute and definitely appealed to an 8+ year old.
The old pens still wrote after all those years!!
Anna was fascinated with the pens in the pot and asked if we could make them when I came to Ohio. After a fun trip to the Crafts store for the supplies and brief instructions from Laura, we set up shop. Didn’t even use a full roll of floral tape.
There are rolls and rolls left. We made a pot for her mom, her other grandma, for Aunt Lala, for Anna’s desk and a new one for me which I might take to school again for our sign-in counter. Laura made some for me to take to school years ago, too.
If you seriously want to make them for any reason I found instructions just now online here at show
After making them with Anna and looking up instructions, I see people create them as favors and as pens for wedding guest books and such.
You can see her peeking through the finished pots of pens.
You could start your own posie pen business and sell them on Ebay. You’ll make a fortune!
Why did you buy that much? I don’t think a florist has that much
What a great craft idea and I love the picture of Anna peeking through the “flowers”.
A great idea. Love the photo.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Anna is adorable! I love this photo of her peeking through the flower pots! Such a sweetie!
Beautiful shot and her mischievous/joyful eye takes all the “corn” out of “corny.” 🙂
Flower pens are right up an 8-year-old’s alley. Cute image of her peering through the pots. 🙂
Cute idea! Great. Great colors too!
The flowers look real! And Anna definitely IS real!!! 🙂
