How to Make Paper Flower Pens


We followed the basic steps in this DIY Swirly Paper Flowers tutorial.

How to Make Flower Paper Pens - Education Possible

We made just a few changes to turn this into a pen:

  • Step 5 – Rather than use paper to make the stem we used a pen and wrapped it with Washi tape/Duct tape.
  • Step 6 – We cut the length of paper in half, using just 4 inches to wrap around each stem/pen.

I LOVE these pens! Not only do they look great by adding a splash of color to our desks, they are also very practical. Because they are big and colorful, they don’t to “walk away” or get mixed up with other supplies.

Fun back to school craft, spring craft or summer craft for middle schoolers.
