Beaded Pen Chat

I have been neglecting my blog. I have been so busy that I haven't had time to sit down at my computer and write anything much less make a layout. I did make two beaded pens but I can't show them since I lifted a sports team logo from the internet and I am not sure if there are any legal issues attached to a Trademark Logo.

In the past I have made beaded pens by stamping on a mailing label....but I wanted a sports team. I went online found a graphic, played with it in Photoshop, personnalize the graphic then printed the graphic on printer paper. I ran it through my sticker xyron then wrapped it around the RSVP pen. Then the rest is the same for beading a pen, get the red sticky tape and wrap it around the pen, heat it then press pen into the beads and roll it on the counter to make sure all the beads are stuck.

My friend really loved it. Just a quick project that you can make for anyone you know who has a favorite team, TV show etc. If you have any questions, let me know. I am happy to help.
