Years ago when we bought our first copy of Fancy Nancy I was able to buy Moran a pen just like Nancy's for her birthday. She loved that pen and used it often. Sadly though it was used up and I have never been able to find another pen like it.
As Arwen was having her Fancy Nancy Party it suddenly occurred to me that perhaps I could make one, duh, of course I should have realised earlier, perhaps it wasn't a priority then though.
I bought a few supplies when I was at Spotlight getting other birthday supplies and then made her a pen on the night before her birthday, very very late in the night hence perhaps the not really pretty pictures.
a pen (not a click pen but a lid pen)
glue (hot glue gun is good but I couldn't find any sticks for ours so I used some craft glue)
and a peg or two
optional: sticky tape
Holding it sideways worked best for me.
Then press down firmly to hold the ribbon in place.
I did not and it has been fine every since.
Of course now I have a few extra people wanting me to make them one in time for the new 'school year' and of course I think I just might have to indulge them in this.
Blessings to you and your homes,
