DSP Flower Pen

My upline, Kim Peck, had a pizza party and stamp night for her first level last month to celebrate our $1 million milestone (that's $1 million as a whole between all her first level demonstrators). It was so fun to visit with my sidelines and get to stamp projects that I didn't have to prepare myself! All of the projects were top notch. The first one was this DSP Flower Pen.

I was too busy stamping to write down all the measurements, sorry! Basically, we took three strips of different Designer Series Paper and made cuts from one end down to about 1/2" from the other end. We used a long piece of Sticky Strip to adhere it to the top of the pen (as shown in the image to the right). We started with the shortest piece at the top and then started the next piece a little lower and the next a little lower on the tip of the pen.

The vase is a glass candle holder prettied up with a piece of DSP and ribbon. There were chocolate kisses inside, but well, they didn't last long! They would nicely hold the pen up if they were still in there. Actually, I think I did leave just a few so that the pen would stamp up.

Supplies: Raspberry Tart DSP, Old Olive Patterns DSP, 5/8" Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Sticky Strip, Melon Mambo Polka Dot Ribbon
