How to Make a Personalized Flower Pen Using Floral Tape

Updated on September 8, 2014

A special pen for a special girl, a personalized flower pen.

A flower pen is a fanciful pen that is made to look like a flower. The pens are enjoyed by adults and children.

This lens will detail the materials, instructions, and possible pitfalls of making personalized flower pens using floral tape. While I have made many of these over the years, I have never done one with beads and charms.

I came across a remarkable young lady recently. She is 8 years old. She's very smart, but she has difficulty writing. Because its hard for her, she doesn't like to do it.

She said she wouldn't mind, if she was writing about something she was interested in, or cared about. Out of the mouths of babes. While she was telling me all of this, over cookies, it occurred to me that someone needed to make writing more fun for her.

A larger pen would make it easier. I mentioned this to her and she said she knew. She had some and they were easier. But, she was embarrassed to use them at school because they were ugly.

Pretty pens are more fun for kids to use

Little girls love to talk.

While getting to know her, I found out her favorite colors and a few of the things she liked. She's the daughter of a co-worker of my husband.

This article, and the pens produced to illustrate the process of how to make a personalized flower pen, are dedicated to her. I will send them to her father, via my husband along with a diary in hopes she will practice her writing at home.

These are fatter because I used so many flowers. Using a pen that's a little fatter should make it easier for her to write.

Since I'm using her favorite colors, flowers, and a few charms of things she likes, it will be personalized just for her. As long as I can keep it from being ugly, I think it's all golden.

I want this one. Mine is OK but it's cheap, too small, and tends to fall over.

I'm also mad at it right now for burning me. I am further impressed with this one because it's cordless. That works! Nothing ever seems to come with a long enough cord. I like the freedom of movement this provides.

Further, there's the embarrassing klutz factor to consider. If there is a cord to trip on, I'll find it.

 

Step one - Assemble the materials.

Get everything together that will be needed.

Getting everything together at once makes the whole process go faster. It's annoying to have to stop in the middle and go hunting for needed items.

When using beads, be sure to keep them from rolling about.

Notice, the small jar. This is for holding beads. I got the beads for the project this morning, along with the flowers and charms. The beads are easiest to work with if you leave them on the string they came on.

Inevitably, I always have some escape, hence the jar. If stringing your own, use a beading tray to prevent such escapes.Be careful not to leave any escapees on the floor. Someone will step on it. It will roll. They will fall.

Be diligent in your pursuit of all escaped beads. They are to be considered highly dangerous, especially for me, who is considered an accident waiting to happen.

Step two - Pick the specific flowers you are going to use.

Lay them out where you can see them all, but keep the original bouquets close in case you mess one up, or need a filler flower.

Lay out the flowers to be used

Pick your specific flowers. I bought these on sale. They were the right colors and only $.99 each. The little purple one I already had, but ended up not using.

Step three - Start cutting the flowers.

Using the wire cutters, cut out the flowers you wish to use from the bouquet.

Always cut fake flowers pointing down

Source

Use a firm grip on the tool and the flower. I have had them pop up on me when not really watching what I was doing. There's nothing like a rose bopping you in the head to get your attention. Placing the flower downward towards a work surface, like in the picture, helps prevent that. I find it easier to cut holding them up in one hand, like you would carry a bouquet, but that's what results in me getting flowers to the head.

I like this set because hand cramping is becoming an issue. For those with a love for crafting who experience issues with arthritis or other conditions affecting hand movement, this is the way to go.

Personally, I'm not about to give up doing what I like and I don't want to put up with the cramps, so this is the way. Being such a large and inclusive set makes it very affordable and pretty much covers everything I need.

 

Keeping flowers monochromatic with only one or two accent colors works well.

Source

Step four - Start building your bouquet.

Experiment with one or two flowers at a time.

I like the one in the photo here, but the leaves are too low.

NOTE: If you want leaves, you will need to push them up the stems before you start taping.

I like to keep some of the leaves. It looks more natural and ties in the color of the floral tape nicely.

Three become two, - when flowers start connecting.

And, two become one.

Hold tightly at first to be sure nothing moves on you.

Source

Step five - Keep adding in the flowers.

Bind each new addition with floral tape as you go.If you're like me, you may be thinking I don't need that much tape. One quick wrap around the top, and I'm good to go.

When using multiple flowers, be sure to bind at top and bottom. I don't know why, but the flowers seem to have a mind of their own.

They will start to slant and wiggle if you don't tape the bottoms.

Step six - Lay the bound flowers by the pen.

Trim any stems that need it using the wire cutters.

Source

Cutting the flowers can result in flying bits.

Be careful. When cutting off little ends they tend to snap and fly sometimes. If doing this in a group, always turn away from others to make the cut. It's a good idea to turn your own head as well, or wear goggles. I have never been popped in the eye, but I have had one hit me in the face. Keep stems shorter than the length of the pen minus the tip.

Use the back of the open cutters not the front to make it easier on your hands

Source

Step seven - Hold pen and flowers and start wrapping.

Wrap the pen and the bouquet together using the floral tape. Start at the top and work your way down. Keep the tape taught as you go.

Try to keep the tape tight

Source

Step eight - When you get to the bottom, make several layers of tape. Cut the tape.

Source

Pull the tape and press it down firmly.

Step nine - Repeat the winding of the pen starting at the bottom and work your way up.

Because there are several flowers used, multiple layers of tape will be required to hold everything together firmly over time.

Be sure to do a few extra tape loops at the bottom

Source

Adding charms, beads or stones adds visual interest to the flower pen

Source

Step ten - Bling it up.

Bling it up. For this pen, I used light and dark pink, very thin ribbon. I also used a thicker silver, shimmery ribbon, and several charms, all representing things the young lady had told me she likes, such as peace signs and flowers.

I had wanted to do a unicorn charm too, but could not find one at the store. I needed to get it done by the end of the day.

Cut your selected ribbons. Use the tiny twisty to affix the charm to a flower, or string it onto the ribbon. I got the twisty tie right out of the package the charm came in. It was holding the charm in the package.

I did one charm with the twist tie, and one just stringing it on the ribbon. I won't be doing the twisty tie again.

Time saving tip -

Source

If you want your ribbon the same length, but don't want to measure, pull and cut both spools at the same time.

I can't say I would recommend the twisty tie.

Source

It was awkward to work with and I don't like the way the charm hangs from it. I do think it would be useful for affixing a larger charm right in the center by tying it to the pen. The connection could be covered with ribbon allowing the charm to peek out underneath.

Be careful with the glue gun.

Source

Seriously. I know better and I still got a small burn. It was my own fault for not having the materials spread out enough. I'm not used to taking pictures while I work. I laid the glue gun down and grabbed the camera. The phone rang, so I sat the camera down, grabbed the phone and leaned on the table when answering. Yep. You guessed it, right on the gun, of course. Owch!

My favorite pick.

I'm really liking how many cute charms come in one package here. Bang for the buck is always best with me. I also like that they can be used in multiple projects such as the pen, jewelry making, adorning pillows, curtain tie backs, any number of fun things.

 

Using the needle nose pliers, separate some of the charms from the barrels

Source

I used the pliers to open the little metal ring that was holding the charm. I placed the charm on the bead strand and closed the ring with the pliers. The ring is tiny. I had to have really good lighting to be able to see it. I started adding them to the pen by connecting with one ribbon at a time using simple knots.

Step eleven - Trim off any excess ribbon.

It needs to be shorter than the length of the pen minus the tip. Make the cuts on a diagonal to give a more finished look.

Source

Step twelve - Embellish and cover holes.

Source

Using a hot glue gun, glue down flowers, studs, jewels or charms anywhere up top where the pen and bouquet meet that might have a hole or look too thin.

Bows are beautiful. - I can't make a decent one to save my own behind.

I will have one of these! My bows never come out like I want. I have decided to stop fighting it. This goes on my wishlist.

When I try by hand, more times than not my bows come out wonky, lopsided and just sad looking. It's annoying.

I love a value pack. Between the book and the product, I will have perfect bows. I will!

 

Finally!

All done. Yahoo. Do the happy dance.

This was fun and I learned a thing or two to apply to more detailed pens in the future.Many schools have stopped teaching cursive writing in America. So many children can't write well. I hope for at least one girl, that changes.

It was so much fun. I did two. - I already had everything out.

Source

Go inspire someone to write something brilliant with a brand new pen, made for a special someone, by a special someone, you.

Pink flower pens will be adored by many a little girl and some big ones, too.

Source

These are so much fun to make.

Be it for a party, classroom project or just some crafty time spent with the gal pals, this easy project is sure to be a hit.

It's really good for fundraisers, gifting large groups and appreciation mementos.

How many times have you had to hunt for a pen?

Never again with one of these.

Many a teacher keeps these in a flowerpot on his or her desk ensuring a pen is always on hand when needed.

To really jazz it up, add in some lollipops or pixie sticks for a sweet look.

      Oh! You're right. The poor thing was standing up in a ribbon spool for these photos. I'm going to have to get a bud vase. I should have thought of that. It's long gone now. But, I'm going to hang onto the vase idea for school starts soon and I would like to give some of these to the neighborhood girls. We have a gaggle of little ones headed off the kindergarten this year in the subdivision. Thanks bunches and God bless!

      To answer your question, giving them a flower pen! I love this crafty idea and with your example, it would look sweet if you had a small bud vase in which to place the flower pen.

      This seems like it would be a fun challenge I didn't realize the details to doing this project then again how would I if I never done it myself. Looks like there is a lot more to it then when you just buy it yourself a person doesn't realize all the work that was put into it until someone explains it to them. Great lens!

      This idea is a lovely one. It may be a bit difficult to keep the flowers fresh, but many girls would undo it and press them before they faded away! At least that is what my friends would have done when we were kids.Lovely lens well done and I hope you keep making them.
