Recycled Crafts: How to Make a 3D Paper Pen Topper

March 22, 2013 at 3:34 pm Leave a comment

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s tutorial is how to make a 3D paper pen topper. We have one at the store that everyone loves, so it was decided a tutorial on the blog was in order.



Paper punch or circle template


Paper of your choice

Glue stick 

Hot glue

Ballpoint pen

Step 1:

Using a template or a paper punch, cut 16 circles.


Step 2:

Fold each circle in half, and then begin gluing half of one circle to the half of another circle.


Step 3:

Continue gluing halves together until all the circles have been used. Connect them into a circle by gluing the last two halves together. If you used a template, some of the edges may need trimming if they overlap.


Step 4:

Add a bit of hot glue to the inside of your sphere and attach it to the cap of a regular ballpoint pen. Enjoy!
