Introduction: Trick Your Friends With Their Flip Video Camera!

About: I'm Mikey!

For the April Fools day contest, but you can do this anytime.

This Instructable will easily freak out your friends (maybe), and they'll wonder how you got that note in there.

So, if you want to do this, let's get to work! :-)

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Materials.

  • Your friend/ cousin/ relative/ ANYBODY'S Flip Video Camera, or any from Pure Digital Technologies that are like this.
  • Screwdriver.
  • Paper.

Step 2: Open Up the Camera.

Pull off the 4 rubber thingies, and then remove the screws.

Once you get the screws out, open up the camera.

Try not to get that battery holder undone, it gets really annoying.

Step 3: Paper/ Cutting Time.

Write down your note.

Put it up to the camera.

It obviously is too big, right?

So it's time for cutting.

Put the paper up to the screen, and trace how big the screen is.
Then, cut.

Then, write a note.
Put it in.

Move on to the next step.

Step 4: Finishing Up.

Once you have your paper in place, put the top back on.
Don't forget any of the pieces to put back in, like the battery holder place.

Once you finish, screw everything back in, leave the camera, and wait for the look of your friend's face.

Have fun pranking!

Step 5: Bob.

Throughout the Instructable, did you see Bob?

Here's what the whole finger looks like.

It used to be my WHOLE hand, but then my mom got mad.

Have fun pranking once again!

    Probably. The Mino? Just open it up; don't lose or mess anything up, and just put the picture there.

    Hey, GM, I know this is random, but I really like the design you drew on your finger-could you draw a similar one on paper and upload it and give me the link? I want to put it as the background on my computer and maybe my mp3 player. It's cool, and kinda relaxing to look at.
