Save That Old Blender Pen!

As I was finishing up my Christmas cards the final thing I do is seal the envelopes. YUCK!!! I didn't want to wet my finger and I didn't have one of those office sponge things that you went and use on the flap. SOOO I took my old dried out, tip flattened Blender Pen, the one that is only good for coloringin big circles because there is no tip left at all to get into any corners, and I soaked it in water. Once the pen was wet I just ran it across the envelope flap and VIOLA!!! it was wet and I just folded it over and it was sealed!!! It went SO quickly. No paper cuts on my lips. No awful taste on my tongue and best of all it went SO quickly!!

The tip of the blender pen was sticky but that didn't matter. I was going to toss it anyway. I could have rinsed it out and used it next year but the way I go through Blender Pens I can pretty much guarantee you that I will have a bad one in time for next years Christmas cards!!!

Just a fun little tip to share with you!!
Have a great day!

Hi Wanda:

I'm sure you've heard about the recipe for renewing blender pens. Have you checked out Linda's site:
http://lindastamps.wordpress.com/2008/11/16/stampbusters-do-blender-pen-refill-recipes-really-work/

She tests out products and ideas to see if it really works or which is better. I've learned a lot from her in the few weeks I've been checking out her site.

But your idea is great too. I work at home as a bookkeeper and I mail out over 200 invoices a month. I so dislike sealing those up--even with one of those bottles. They make such a mess.

Have a great week!
