Pens I made for a craft show. They are RSVP pens and I removed the name with a Magic Eraser. I cut designer paper into a strip 3/4 x 3 ˝ and wrapped around the ink “stick” and stuffed into the ink barrel. Then I added a little ribbon around the pen cap.

Very cute! I'm needing some kind of help though. I tried following your directions. My paper wants to get bent and won't go in the pen too good. But the biggest thing is the where the edges come together once they are in the pen...how do you avoid a gap or line showing? Any advice?

Roll the paper really tight. If you need help pushing it into the barrel use the edge of your ink stick. You should have a gap with you DSP, but you might have a line. Try to use a DSP that doesn't need to be lined up perfect (like stripes) and you should be ok.
