Sorry for necrobumping, but this is exactly what I'd want, too. I'm currently having this set up in ColorNote, but its features are only a fraction of that of Evernote otherwise, unfortunately. Just a widget that shows the text from one note, that can be resized to fit one whole screen. Doesn't need an edit function, would be enough if Evernote opens with the note open when you click on the widget.
I use that as a general todo list and for small tidbits I want to remember, but that don't merrit opeing a whole new file for. That screen is between my home screen and my calendar widget, so I scroll past it pretty often and can keep that stuff in mind. Just a shortcut doesn't cut it for me because I don't see the whole list when I scroll past it and and the tag article solution does provide too little space.
I attached a Screenshot to show you what I mean.
