Make a feather quill pen without a feather!

Ok, You want to make a feather quill pen but you don't have a feather! Oh my! That's ok. You can do it with a straw. It isn't as good but it still works quite ok.

Here is how to do it.

This next picture shows you how to cut your straw. It is similar to the feather quill. But, don't cut the straw at too sharp an angle. And the little slit that you make is only about 1/8 of an inch. This is because the straw is not as strong as the feather. If you cut the slit too long it will open too wide and not hold the ink. A short slit will hold together better.

Have a little fun with it and draw out some feathers on paper. Then cut them out and glue them to the straw.
