Mini Pen


Introduction: Mini Pen

About: I should really put something interesting/relevant here....

its a cool mini pen that just looks abnormal
also i want to be cliched and say that this is my first instructable

Step 1: Materials

the only materials you need is

duct tape
a bic pen
and an x-acto knife

Step 2: Dissasemble and Cut the Ink

first you have to comletely dissasemble the pen and slice the ink at the desired length(preferably over a paper towel)

Step 3: Cover the End

now use the duct tape to cover the end of the ink so it does not leak

Step 4: Cut the Shaft

now cut the shaft to the correct length judging by the length of the ink


Now finally reassemble the pen and now youve got a freakish mini pen

    you need lessons on camera focus!!!!!.....................ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    why won't you just use up the ink until it goes to that level so you won't get a mess and get some use out of that?

    my pen keeeps snaping at eh part of the cuting how can i make it propaly i used sizers it it the right tool.

    I drilled a hole through the lid of mine and attached a super-tiny keyring through it. I then clipped it to my keyring. Awesome. I keep a waterproofed strike anywhere match (cut and shaved down slightly), a safety pin, a sewing needle and some thread in mine. I'm thinking about wrapping a few rounds of duct-tape on my next one. You never know when you'll need duct tape.

    sweet!!!!!! thanks for this cool idea, i just made on and i love it. when i cut the ink tube to fit it flew off right into the trash can! SCORE!

    I like to keep a pen in my pocket so I can take notes for business calls to my cell phone when Im out of the office. Regular size pens are to big to carry in my pocket all the time. These are hard to find at the store. Making it yourself was quick and easy. I wonder how well it will work down the road though with one end of the ink tube taped shut.

    i've made those befor i sold them at school for a $1 i got like $20 all you guys should try it

    DUDE! That was one of the easiest instructables ever. It's cool though.

    When I made this I discovered something. Don't make the tape in the ink tube to tight. If air can't get through, the the ink won't move down. So your ink will stop after a little writing.

    YAY i found another pen :p i fixed the length by just adding tubing, for some damn reason...i took out the ink of this one dunno why >.< aight its cool now cool instrutable

    Wow...cant beleave i got bored enouf to do cool pen thou i think i made mine to short :(

    A short pen is a useful trick. I did the same thing a few years ago with a click-stick retractable pen. I clip it in the fold of my wallet and take it with me wherever I go. The size is perfect since it is still long enough to fit my hand. It is very useful to have a pen with you wherever you go, you won't believe how many people will comment on your cool mini-pen when you pull it out to jot down a note on the back of a business card or something.

    i just made mine literally 2 minutes ago. it is about 1 1/2 inches long. very good.

    I was gonna post this. Another way you can sucure the end it by taking a pair of needle nose plyers and squeeze teh ink out. If you look at the original(before cut) you can see that it is the same idea. it is also safer on an airplane this way. warning: make shure you squesse it back to circle(or square) as always 31337
