Step 1: Gather Your Materials!
- Swiss Army Knife
- Possibly a hunting knife if you're frustrated
- A Pen to write your notes
- A Pen to modify into your cheating utensil
- A Marker
Step 2: Prep Your Pen for an Incision
Take your pen apart. It should be a simple design like the 3-piece I have.
Then use your marker to mark a 1 1/2 or 2 inch line. It should be straight.
Then use the Swiss Army Knife to start cutting. I got frustrated, so I started using the hunting knife.
1. Poke a hole
2. Start twisting
3. Shave off excess plastic with the edge
4. Repeat :D
Step 3: Get a Staple for the Pen's Ink Holder
Get out that stapler and switch it to the setting where it becomes straight. Press once for a Straight Staple(Second Image kinda blurry).
Use your Swiss Army Knife, and no you don't need your Hunting Knife, and use either the Knife, Screwdriver, or Cork Twister to make a small hole at the top of the Pen's Ink Holder.
Now, you may need to straighten out the staple. Shove it into the hole as far as you can, the farther the better.
If its loose, get out the Krazy Glue or any Instant Bonding Glue and insert a bunch into the Pen's Ink Holder. It should bond instantly and create a rubber-like sealant.
Step 4: Get Your Modified Ink Holder Into Your Pen Barrel.
This is a hard part and may require a couple tries.
Bend the staple a bit, just enough so its springy. Shove it into the barrel, and you'll start to see your staple through the line you cut.
Now use either the Knife, Nail Filer, or Cork Twister to pull out the staple from the line you cut.
Almost done, next step you'll add your note!
If the staple is sharp and it hurts to push it, get out some electrical tape or a small piece of rubber to put over your staple.
Step 5: Prepare Your Note!
Measure out how much paper you need from however much ink you see.
Use either Krazy Glue or Tape to glue or tape down your message.
Roll it up tight!
Now push the Ink Holder back inside the pen
(If the paper is too thick, cut it smaller and write smaller.)
I hand wrote it, but if you want more notes on smaller paper, type it up.
Use your computer to type up in 1 or 2 font.
Step 6: Final Test
And yes I did get minus 5 for spelling Instructables wrong on the test.
