Pen Safe




Do you have a pen that you do not use anymore? Has the ink dried out? Have you found a new pen, and this one is your ex-pen? Do people like to steal your money?

Well this Instructable is right for you! This instructable is a pen safe. It is the epiphany on the "use it again" campaign. No need to throw it out. Put money in it!

Go to next step for the Items you need.

Step 1: Items You Need

What do I need?

(1) Pen you do not need anymore
(1) Dollar bill, or paper money you wish to hide from your enemies.

Thata about it!

Step 2: Remove Ink From Old Pen

I do not think I need a picture for this because ti is pretty self-explanatory.

Step 1 Remove the ink cartridge from the pen you wish to hide the money in. Throw it away, keep it for another pen, or feed it to your fish. Your choice. (I do not reccommend the third choice.)

Step 3: Folding the Money

The first time I did this, I could not fit the money in all the way in the pen, so I improvised.

Step 2 Fold the money as much as you can so that it will (1) Fit in the pen width wise, and (2) fit in the pen lengtth wise.

Below is a picture of how I folded my 5 dollar bill.

Step 4: Fitting It In

This part is a little bit tricky as it might take all of 15 seconds.

Step 4 Slide the folded money into the pen as carefully as possible, making sure that you do not bend the money.

Step 5 Now you must screw the cap;top;cover, whatever you call it, on to the rest of the pen. DO NOT worry if the money slides too far back that you cannot reach it. Take the cap off and puch the clicking part of the pen all the way down until the money pops out.

Good Luck, thank you, and keep your money safe.

    But then if it's a pen, people won't care much about it and it might get thrown out!

    Maybe, if you use a slightly more beautifull pen, they wont throw it ... more even if it's wrote "your Alison, with love" or something ... The pen does not work, it's beautifull but not precious, and it's sentimental. So, that should not go to the recycle bin ...
