Friendly Plastic Pen Fever

I've continued playing with this fun idea over the last few days and have to confess that I'm totally addicted. I've laid claim to every pen that I could get my hands on and no pen has been spared from receiving a Friendly Plastic makeover. The transformation from plain and utilitarian to designer writing implement is amazing!

The results speak for themselves and after some fine tuning, I'm pleased to say that I've been able to simplify the process so that it can be completed in a workshop. So if you're interested in learning how to create this pen then keep an eye out for it as a class later in the year. I promise you, you won't be disappointed!

A word of caution.... some people will find this class highly addictive and no responsibility can be taken for the onset of Friendly Plastic Pen Fever. Should symptoms persist, ensure you have an adequate supply of pens for the duration of the fever and seek further stocks of Friendly Plastic from your local craft store.

  1. You are being very responsible with your warnings. That pen is very pretty!

  2. Mylene! These are gorgeous...funny I had the same thought to cover ink pens, but my first attempt was a disaster...then I had no time to improve the there the disaster lays! Thanks for inspiring "ME" to perfect it!! Beautiful job as always...and Im featuring this on the blog!

  3. You are now officially the Down Under FP Queen! I love your pen, you are so neat and tidy.
    I sent Dale Rollerson at the Thread Studio your blog address, but you probably know her anyway.

  4. Liz, you're making me blush! That is high praise indeed coming from you.
    I only know Dale by name but have admired her work in Cloth Paper Scissors for a long time.
