Make Your Own Etch a Sketch Note Card

On this Saturday we are looking at How to Make Your Own Etch a Sketch Note Card & I’ve located the discontinued Etch-a-Sketch Classic Game Pen that can still be found online.

Etch a Sketch Game Pen

It is a working version of a real Etch-a-Sketch in pen form, one of several Classic Game Pens.  They also made Operation, and Boggle (along with Etch-A-Sketch) in pen form.

There are several how-to videos on How to Make Your Own Etch a Sketch Note Card that I watched in preparing for today’s daily blog post.

The write-up and tutorial over at CraftyNotShifty website you should enjoy.   It is from last year: Simon Says Stamp July Card Kit.  The list of supplies used is included.  In addition, I’ve included its associated YouTube from it too.
The 4 minute YouTube video takes you through each of the steps.

Etch-a-Sketch Classic Game Pen

At the Vat19 website, it includes a short YouTube and photos.  They are described as:  “Despite their small size, the games are fully functional. The pens are evenly balanced so you can actually use them as your primary writing utensil. … When required, batteries are included. Each game pen features a retractable and replaceable ballpoint pen.”

They are listed as discontinued; however, I was able to find them online, both Ebay and Amazon had them listing as of posting this blog post.

In conclusion, if you find yourself this weekend looking around for something to do perhaps you’ll make one of these cards, and who knows is it possible you or someone in your family still has one of the original Etch-A-Sketches?  Be sure to check out the Etch A Sketch website where they talk about joining the Etch-A-Thon.  Enjoy!
