Default bow pens

So a friend of mine has asked me to make an ink pen with a bow on top. I found an example on this site.http://faithworksboutique.com/item_5...ow-Ink-Pen.htm but can't figure out how to add the bow to the top. Does anyone have any advice? Wouldn't these make adorable teachers gifts? Thanks in advance for the advice.

I'm assuming finishing off the bow with a center wrap and just glue to the top wherever you prefer...I made a couple and I left the cap off of the end of the pen so it almost filled sortof with glue and then attached the bow horizontally on top of pen...It looked cute too..but if you prefer the bow more visible from the size I'd say just glue to the top on the side of the pen. I dunno...I'm struggling from lack of sleeeeppp......hkkfdlkflkmfkldmfdlks j zzzzzzzzzzzzz......lol.

There was instructions on these somewhere on this forum. I used to make them for show fillers, and learned them here.

Here's a thread I just found. The instructions and a picture of how to attach the bow are on page 2 of the thread.

Thanks so much! Everyone is always so helpful! I can be so dense about figuring things out sometimes!

I would suggest attaching the bow using floral wire. You could wrap the wire around the pen, or glue, or both, then wrap the 3/8 ribbon around the entire pen tube.

The same way you do flower pens. I use wire. Then floral tape..
