Hello everyone, welcome!
It’s a super-quick project today.
I came across the idea of flat pens/bookmark pens while browsing YouTube.
It seems they’ve been around for a while but I’ve never come across them before.
My first thought was – can you actually, really, write with them? It turns out you can. I wouldn’t want to write a dissertation using one, but for jotting down notes or a quick shopping list, it’s fine and surprisingly comfortable in the hand.
Here’s how I made mine –
Because I wanted to experiment I used the super-inexpensive pens I had lying around (to give to customers at workshops so they could write their shopping lists). Afterwards I found better-quality ball-point pen refills on Amazon at under £2 for 10.
I'm going to make some to tuck into the Sticky Note holders I've been making!
