Default How to glitter pens?

These look like they might be easy, but I can't tell exactly what to do just from looking at them. What adhesive? Is the glitter affixed to the ink stick?

Any help you can provide would be wonderful.

Thank you,

Looks like she just put loose, chunky glitter right in the barrel of the pen. As long as the end stays on tight I wouldn't think you need to glue it.

I may be totally wrong, but looking at the black pen, it looks like she may have put the sticky paper around the ink barrel, rolled it in glitter and put it back inside the pen. I might have to try this.

I went to the maker's website. On the righ side of the screen she lists her projects. This one is called 'Beaded Pens'. I think it was dated May (?), f2009. She give directions on how to create these beaded pens.

Good luck!

Her web-site? I didn't see a link - did I miss it? I'm blind like that.

Leah, I'm as blind as you, because I can't find her website listed either!

I did, however, find instructions right here on Splitcoast, while trying to google for her website

Aimee's Glitter Pens


She just wraps Terrifically Tacky Tape around the ink cartridge, rolls it in glitter and then puts the cartridge back into the pen. I think the pink pen looks "fuller" because she used chunkier glitter.
