How to Make a Duct Tape Tassel Pen | Sophie’s World


hi I’m Sophie and welcome to my world last time Frankie and I were hanging out here which was just a little while ago we were making this amazing super secret diary however you need something cool to write with for your super secret diary don’t you think yeah I think so so we are going to teach you how to make a really cool little tassel pen this is a tassel topped pen which fits perfectly into the spirals of her spiral notebook so now miss would you like to learn how to make one of these yes I would okay for this project you will need duct tape a ballpoint pen scissors and a work surface Frankie this is a really simple easy craft and you know what it’s perfect for the end of the roll do you know what the end of the roll is no that’s okay oh the end of the duct tape roll exactly when you get to the very end there’s like about oh like 3-4 inches left you’re like what am I going to do with this there’s not very much less this is the perfect perfect thing now what would you like yours to look like so I’ve got yellow and purple here that I’m gonna be making but I’ve got some bubble which is kind of fun and I’ve got the purple and I’ve got the green what would you like I think I’d like to use the bubble and I also had the yellow okay and the purple so you want to use the bubble yeah okay so we’re going to give you four and a half inches of bubble so let’s just move this stuff off to the side here move our notes ok we’re going to take four and a half inches you know what’s great about this this is four inches right there no need to measure so we’re gonna go for four cubes exactly four cubes and then right down there is a half okay so would you like to cut that with the x-acto knife right now you get that and then what other color would you like to use you want to use yellow purple green purple okay you got it this one’s already set and ready to go for you great okay so here’s what we’re going to do take the purple one oh no I’m not good at this don’t panic so I promise it’ll be okay I promise okay okay so we’re going to take this one okay and we’re just going to lay it right on top like that so go ahead and smooth that down great so see that wasn’t so hard was it no no now which do you want to be on the outside you want the bubble on the outside or the purple I want the bubble okay so fold that edge down please great so you end up with kind of like a little line across the top and then look at this on this side we have sticky right okay you get it? I’m just going to cut these little edges off because we don’t need these okay and I’ll let you cut the other edge off right over there so what we’re going to do Frankie is just take the we’re just going to take the scissors that we have right here and you’re going to start cutting from the purple side so the side that doesn’t have the sticky you’re just going to start cutting little fringe and I like to make this you know pretty thin but it’s up to you you know you don’t have to make it thin and I often find that it’s easier to turn it over so you can see where that edges where that sticky edge is and then you just kind of cut down until you’re almost there but not all the way I’m gonna let you take over that okay and while she does that I’m going to get at pen now here’s the deal with the pen they could be any kind of ball point pen it could be a pencil it can be whatever you want to use it’s not a big deal whatever you want to make fancy is what you are going to use now while she’s doing that I’m going to do a little prep work ahead of time here because one of the things that we’re also going to need to do put a few little strips of tape underneath to finish it off and so I’m just cutting a few little 1/2″ pieces of tape the Frankie can you use when she wants to finish it off so these are set and ready and then I think did we use purple there Frankie yeah okay alright let’s see maybe we’ll use a little bit of yellow here since we don’t have the purple purple going to give you one or two strips of that if that’s okay mm-hmm so how’s that cutting going good hey excellent so now once she’s done with that what we’re going to do is take our pen and we’re just basically going to wrap it around just get very very very very very very poufy when we do because she’s got long she’s almost there excellent you’re doing nice little cuts thank you like that so it ends up looking like a giant eyelash really is what it ends up looking like that’s a very very big i although let me just tell you you would not want to put this on your own eyelashes because it would stick and trust me I know from experience ok so you don’t want to know ok so I’m gonna take the sticky edge right and I’m just going to lay it right here now see how we’ve got the non sticky and sticky line up the non-sticky with the top of the pen and then put the sticky on the pen body so I’m going to give you that and you take over and then Frankie you’re just going to wrap it around straight around and she’s just going to wrap it around and around and around it’s making a tassel what’s great about this is that if you have like the end of the roll where it has cardboard on it you can still do this with cardboard all you have to do if you pull that off cut about four and a half inches add a little tiny strip of duct tape on the bottom so you have your sticky strip then cut your end of the roll that has the paper on the back of it into a tassel and you can still do the same thing there you go you’re doing great actually you know what as you’re doing that i think i’m gonna give you green because we’re going to win a little green to go around that too match your book i’m just realizing yes excellent so now she’s finished it off there and i’m going to give her a little strip of tape this is basically half inch by two inches because the duct tape is two inches and she’s just gonna wrap around that’s it just wrap that around the bottom there you want another piece, sure and then if you want we can add a little bit of your blue in there too if you like your bubbles aren’t those bubbles fun that bubble tape fun. I love it I wish that you know this is the only thing with dollar tree cuz this is dollar tree tape they only put it out for a really really short period of time so when you see it you’re like grab it because otherwise you’re you’re never going to find it again there you have it that is your pen and now you put that with your fabulous diary here glam it up and you are all set for keeping your super secret secret secret for more fun ideas come and check us out at sophie-world.com
