Gloria's Flower Pens


 Hold the flower next to the pen and clip the flower stem so it is about 2-inches up from the tip of the pen. The flower should sit on the end of the pen. Remove and leaves. While holding the flower stem tightly against the pen, wrap the entire length of the pen with floral tape. This will secure the pen and flower together.

 Beaded Recipe Card Holder

 This handy combination recipe holder and space marker can be neatly tucked out of the way when you aren't using it, although it is pretty enough that you may want to find a spot to display it!


  •  20 Guage Wire
  • Beads
  • Pencil
  • Wire Cutters


Cut a piece of wire about 16" long. Start wrapping one end of the wire around the pencil. Wrap about 6" of the end to form a tight coil. Slide the coil off the pencil. String 9 or 10 of beads onto the wire, and push them up tight to the coil you made. Wrap the straight end of the wire around the pencil as you did with the first end. Once you have a tight coil, carefully slide it off the pencil.

Place a bead on each end of the wire, bends the tip to keep it in place. Bend your beaded creation into a 'U' shape, and you are done!

Set your beaded wire on the counter and the recipe card can easily be placed in the coils at both ends and it we be held up for you to read. You can also use the beaded wire to save a spot in your recipe box.
