Thanks for posting  and for the tute.  I love Bic Pens but let's face it <yawn> they're boring.
Thanks to you not anymore. 
I have a Vogue issue with tons of glossy print ads that I would like to try.

Fun idea. Wouldn't it be easier to remove the other end?

I swap, so in crafting terms I guess that means I put out... You?

I've always hesitated to buy these pens, not because they don't write well, but because they look so boring and cheap.  This is a super creative way to make them adorable!  Good work!

Thanks, everyone! 

Sactownsue, the tip actually comes out a lot more easily than the plug on the other end (I know, it seems like it should be the opposite!).  It's tough to get the plug out without mangling the pen, because there is no easy way to grab it. 

Lady Lianalla, I definitely use the word "so" too much, so don't feel bad (haha)!
