As most of my watchers know, I'm in an Art Education program at my University. One of the classes I took this semester was about classroom behavior management. Tomorrow (or, today, actually...) is my last day of field work at an elementary school, where I work with a class of fourth graders. Our professor told us to do something nice for the kids and our host teacher, and, rather than buying candy (with the variety of food, dye, etc. allergies, dietary lifestyles, and whatnot, I'm not gonna risk it!) or winter pencils or something, I decided to make them all a little something.
I have a lot of duct tape, had a lot of extra ballpoints, so, flower pens. The flowers are of an original design- I didn't use tutorials or anything. I was screwing around with tape one day a while back, and, eventually got a design I liked. I'm surprised I remembered how to do it, as I hadn't used tape in so long.
There are 26 pens, but only 22 students. I wanted to leave a few extras so one kid wasn't stuck with a design they absolutely hated.
