Hi!  We have our guest book already, but we need a pen to go with it.  I am not impressed by the ones I've seen for sale.  Anyone know how I can make one of those cool ribbon-wrapped pens?  I'd love to do it, but I have no idea how to get the ribbon to stick to the pen. 

Our wedding has a fall theme, so any other fall-related pen ideas are welcome as well.  Smiley

Thanks so much!!

Hi, Been lurking for a while, thought I would answer your post Smiley

I used to make ribbon wrapped pens when I was in middle school and i always used a  mini hot glue gun to attach the ribbon. I think I ran just a bead of glue up one side of the pen and then wrapped the ribbon.  Google Ribbon Wrapped pen and I am sure you will find a few tutes.

Hope this helps

I've used the hot glue method before as well. Or I bet it would work to wrap the pen in the super sticky double sided bead tape and then wrap the ribbon around there.

I would go with the double sided tape..it sounds like it would hold well without a lot of mess.  If it doesnt, there is a product called Guco Cement they sell at most Family Dollar stores & craft stores, it is very good, but a bit messy if you get too much on it. Let us know what you use & post a pic of the finished product...Please
