Subject: "You are Special" poem
On Mother's Day where I work we are giving each woman a flower pen because they are "special" (not all are mothers). Would like a very short poem telling them this.

Sassie, how about this as a start...
This flower pen is coming to you
With a message to say
On Mother's Day you're as special
As on any other day!

You are very special
So this flower pen is for you
To wish you a Happy Mother's Day
And the best the whole year through.

Subject: Mother's Day Pen Poem needed
I was wondering if you talented people could come up with a simple poem for Mother's Day that my DS's class can attach to a pen flower. When he asked me, I knew just the place to go, your all so wonderful at this and my poems are just down right scary, hahaha
Thanks for all you do and your time in helping us poem challenged people!

A flower for Mother's Day
Isn't that neat?
Meant for a lady
Who is awesome and sweet
It looks like a flower
But on the other end
What do you suppose?
It's a writing pen !

I'm just gonna do them the easy way--wrap the flower stem and pen with floral tape. Got several like that which look nice.

I drill a little hole in the end of the pen and put the stem in it then wrap with the tape it turns out really nice I hot glue the leaves to the flower

I used the Bic pens; the little 'sealer' end cap pops out; stick a clipped stem of flowers in there with a bit of glue. Then, wrap pen with floral tape; pulling tape tight so it will stick.

Hi. I do mine the same way that Annie B does hers--pop the little plug off the BIC pen and stick the stem down in there. I haven't made them in a long time....would make a good addition to some of the odds 'n ends paint can goodie tins I'm doing.

Flower Pens w/Vase or Pot
You will need:
Artificial flowers and various berry picks (picks optional)
Package of Pens
Small Glass Vase OR Terra Cotta Pot
Decorative marbles or small river rocks (pebbles)
Clip the flowers so there is about 1-2 inches of stem. Put a dot of hot glue on one side of the pen, near the top and press the flower's stem into the hot glue. Hold in place for about 5 seconds, or until set. Set aside to dry for about 1 minute (work on other pens during this time.) Starting at the top of the pen, wrap the pen with floral tape. Place the flower pens in a little vase filled with decorative marbles or river rocks.
Here are some sites to give you an idea of what they look like. I use these in my own office, because parents and co-workers don’t accidentally walk off with them. You can make it a Christmas poinsettia theme OR a floral theme you can use all year round.
