This case mod allows you to sneakily conceal your USB in a chewing gum packet, apart from being super-mega-awesome-cool this mod will stop all those annoying classmates who always borrow your usb, (you know, the ones that don't delete their files afterwards)
When they ask simply reach into packet and retrieve your "chewing gum" !!
This is really easy and the finished product can be achieved in around 10 min !
Hope you like it !!
Step 1: Obtaining USB, Cardboard, Gum !
My USB had already lost its case (hence the 'ible) so i didn't need to remove one.
If your USB is still i its plastic coffin then grab a craft knife and gently pry at the edges, this will pop the little clasps, now slowly lift the top and it should also pop off.
For this 'ible you will also need a section of cardboard approximately 4 inch by 4 inch.
Surprisingly enough you will also need a pack of Chewing Gum !
Onwards to step 2 !!
Step 2: Cutting the Cardboard
Rest the Gum packet on the cardboard and using a pencil draw around it. Now remove the Gum packet and using a craft knife cut along the lines you drew
(dont cut your nice wooden desk though, if you do, using a dremel to try to buff it out DOESN'T work, it gets much, much worse) :(
Step 3: Packet Surgery
We don't want to tear it open so grab a craft knife !! NOT by the SHARP bit !! oh jesus go get a plaster, and then follow the pictures for more detail.
Step 4: Dividing Forces
Step 5: Fitting the usb
Cut the top layer of the cardboard off and then place the USB in the hole, if it doesn't fit cut out more space.
When you have the right size hole use some glue to attach the two sides of the cardboard together.
Step 6: Fitting into Pack
When the cardboard does fit put a little bit of glue on the outside so that the packaging wont slide off.
Step 7: Finito Completo !
