Attach the rose to the top of the pen with pieces of solid color duct tape. Once secure, wrap a strip of tape around the pens body. Add glitter glue and decorative design to the underside of the rose. When the pen runs dry or you just want to change the color, simply pull out the pen nib, using a twisting back and forth motion with the pliers till it comes out.

For the ponytail holder, do the same rose making technique as above. Then use little strips of the white tape to adhere it to the hair elastic.

I made this pretty flower hair clip and head band with the following supplies:
The Duck Tape Brand® Duct Tape Sheets,
The Duck Brand® Duct Tape Rolls,
(VELCRO® is a registered trademark of Velcro Industries B. V.)
permanent markers, a paper piercer, 1 brad, and 1 hair clip.
First I made 3 different sized hearts from cereal packaging. These became my templates. I made sure the largest heart was no bigger than the width of the duct tape roll.
I traced at least 5 of each heart onto the duct tape sheet and colored in their designs before cutting.
I adhered the clip to the back of the flower with some tape and added more to make sure the flower would not come undone. I cut a small piece of the VELCRO® Brand Sticky Hook and Loop Fasteners, added it to the hair clip and to this head band, so each would stay put in the hair.

VELCRO® Brand Plant Ties, are my gardens new best friend! You can see how in the picture on the left, my Angel Wing Begonias were drooping, and no amount of yarn or string was helping to hold them back. The photo on the right shows what a difference these plant ties made and with out damaging the fragile stalks.
