"I made it!"

It was simple and fun to make, and the hardest part I think, was cutting the parts out of the pen lid. I added two bottle caps for extra support and better looks.

Hi, it looked nice! Thank you very much. Yes, I agree with you that cutting the ballpoint cap need an extra effort, but it was fun and easy. And that was a great idea put bottle caps at the base for extra support. You also can use a jumbo paperclip so it is strong enough to sustain it.

I made It! this was very simple and easy, and I even added some other things to it. I glued to bottle caps to the base of the paperclip so it wouldn't fall over, just to give it some extra support.
