DIY:Feather pen cum bookmark

Before the invention of plastic ink pens, people used to use feathers dipped in ink to write their letters. If you are teaching children about Colonial history, you can help the kids make their own feather pens
To make these feather pens that can be used as bookmarks you will need thick paper, colors, and a refill.
1. Draw the shape of a feather on the paper and cut it out.
2.Repeat this step again so that you will have 2 such identical feathers with you.
3.Insert a refill in between both the feathers and glue the edges of both the feathers so that the refill doesn't fall off.
4.Color your feather now with bright colors.
Tada!!!! your feather pen is ready.......
