We've got the write idea for that cool school pal: a bead-dangling pencil that's a real charmer.
Note: These are the materials needed to make one charm pencil.
If the ribbon slides down the pencil, glue it in place.
Tie the ribbon around the top of the pencil and secure it with a tight double knot, leaving 2 fairly even ends.
Thread the beads onto one end of the ribbon, knot the end at the length you want, and trim.
Cut 2 identical hearts from card stock. Glue the hearts together with the other half of the ribbon sandwiched inside as shown. Knot and trim the ribbon. Write a message on the heart.
