Step 1: Supplies:

  • straws
  • scissors
  • paper
  • ink

Step 2: Start Cutting

if your straws are like mine, they have a bendy thing at the end. Cut them off and make them the same length.
Two of your straws need to be cut lengthwise too.

Step 3: Making the Body

when you have cut the straws the other way, it should be easy to put them in to each other, but remember to put the lines on the same side.

Step 4:

Cut off the end of the three straws on an angle. Remove the tip, then cut a line down the middle. Sharpen the tip again.

Step 5:

The possibilities are endless. Not only does the pen draw and write fantastic, but the ink makes for a darker tone in your work. If you are done and want to clean the pen, you can just take apart all the straws, wash them and then put them back together again.
