Step 3: Wrap the stem
Add a dab of glue to the base of the flower to attach floral tape. Tightly wrap floral tape around the pen at a slight downwards angle, overlapping the edges by a 1/4 inch.
Step 4: Finish the stem
Finish wrapping the pen when the edge of the tape is flush with the pen's cap. Add a layer of glue to seal the end and keep the tape from unwrapping.
Step 5: Arrange your finished pens in a vase for your desk or kitchen counter.
