Write Away

Create a fancy quill pen with just two materials: a pen (with a cap, not a push button) and Duck Fabric Crafting Tapes. Cut two matching lengths of tape that are a few inches longer than the pen. Peel off the backing and sandwich the pen between the tape pieces. Use scissors to cut the tape into a feather shape. Make short, diagonal snips into the sides, as shown.
