    So in the Uk, the skins available for the pens are: orange, green, butterfly and football, none of which really appealed, but I ordered the butterfly one anyways by calling 0845 600 5055, THEYRE FREE BTW
    Once it arrived I didn’t really like it so I decided to diy it! Here’s how to do it:
    Push out the two stickers
    Draw round them in pencil on some plain paper
    Draw your design onto the paper
    Cut round your pencil lines
    Use sticky tape or sticky back plastic to fix them into your pen!
    Here’s the original sticker and what mine now looks like!
    - please comment if you try it, I’d love to see!

    Great idea, I was going to try something similar with washi tape but your idea of using the original stickers as a template would work better. Thanks for the tip on where to get the skins. I knew they existed but not where to get them
