I love feminine pieces. I've seen this kind of pens in Claire's for years and they are just charming. They are like 6 Canadian dollars each. This one costed like 1 dollar and looks amazing! It's also a great idea if you usually loose your pens as this is hard to hide.

Step 1: Materials
Craft boa, you can find this in a craft store or fabric store.
1.5" width pink ribbon
Step 2: Measure
Take the lid off the pen. Place in over the ribbon and cut 1.5 inches more than the length of the pen.
Step 3: Cut and Glue
Cut 5 inches of the boa and glue the ends to the highest part of the pen.
Step 4: Prepare the Ribbon
Put glue in one of the ends of the ribbon and fold it to the inside.
Put glue in the other end and fold it for 1/2 inch. This is going to go in the lower part of the pen so this wider edge will make it more confortable to use the pen to write.
Step 5: Glue the Ribbon
Put some glue in the pen and glue the ribbon. Be careful to keep it vertical all the way down.
The highest part of the ribbon is going to cover the edges of the boa.
Step 6: Ready!
Now it's ready to be used! Take it to school, work or just in your purse.
