I have made several of these over the years.

And the most important thing to remember is to use the strongest glue you have.

Ribbon on pens moves when you write with the pen too much movement and they start to unravel.

If you have to put a few discrete drops of superglue on go for it.

BTW A freinds mom used to put fun fur hair and googly eyes on the top of her ribbon pens and sell them.

If the ribbon ends fray you can also use fray check on them. Or singe them a little with a candle.

I have made them with a large silk flower on the top, which is really cute too.

The pens are cute but I had a hard time looking past that head band with ribbon flower! I'm thinking that would be supercute for my flower girl next year...
