Have you ever wanted to use all your great pens and markers with your Cricut Explore? There are pen adapters out there and they get good reviews. But I was in a bind and could order online, I wanted my Explore to use the markers I had in my stash right now!
So I trotted off to the Dollar Tree and picked up a pack of pencil grips. I watched a video from Ken's Kreations on YouTube on how to remove the pen holder (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLGUVUNHyzg) and I did a test on a Sharpie, a Dollar Tree Glitter Pen and a Bistro Chalk Marker.
I cut the pencil grips in half and wrapped them evenly around each one. I inserted them holding a popsicle stick below and once it touched the stick, I clamped it shut. All three did great. I posted pictures below and you can see for yourself. Give it a try!
