Butterfly Pen Gift Arrangment

Butterfly pen

This beautiful butterfly pen was an idea that came to my mind when I wanted to make a very special and unique gift arrangement for my very special and unique friend. And I wanted the gift to match the balloon, lol. Immediately, a butterfly came out of the balloon. Now, what can I make with a butterfly that she can use? So I thought of a pen because she has to write every day.

The top part of the pen is a decoration that she could use with other pens or pencils because it is removable.

So let start making this project:

The materials that we are going to use to make this project are:

Settings for Groove-e Machine:

  • Force = 25
  • Speed = 150

Steps to make the pen:

  1. I found a pretty butterfly in the MTC Gallery, downloaded it, and made a big shadow of that butterfly. I then had the butterfly in two different sizes.
  2. I cut a small rectangle big enough to put around of the top of any pen.
  3. I cut two pieces of the shadow butterfly that would allow me to glue them around the border, leaving a space to fill with Poly-fil.
  4. I glued the rectangle base that I made to put on top of the pen.
  5. Before gluing the two butterflies together, I made the antennas with pipe cleaners and glued them to one of the butterflies so that when I glued the butterflies together the antennas would be between them.
  6. Next, I glued the two butterflies together. Once the butterflies were glued and filled, I then glued the top of the butterfly to close it.
  7. I proceeded to embellish the butterfly with ribbon and paper flower.
  8. Finally, I covered the pen with ribbon so it looks nice and pretty.

Steps to make the arrangement:

  1. I filled the bud vase with candies and covered the mouth of the vase with kitchen wrap paper so the candies stay covered and clean all of the time.
  2. Next, I put foam on the top of the base and covered it with ribbon and a paper flower.
  3. Then, I attached the pen and the balloon.
  4. I made a bow with ribbon and tulle and glued it to the balloon.
  5. I also put more pipe cleaner to the vase to make it look more beautiful.
