I had popped a couple pieces of gum in my mouth when, like anyone with a severe case geek, I noticed the wrapper was about the size of a USB key. I then of course grabbed my USB key, threw it in the wrapper, and it was a perfect fit.
Having being struck by inspiration I grabbed a fresh pack of gum and headed to my secret laboratory. There, after many late hours and painstaking trial and error, I developed my own Doublemint flavored USB key. Here I have meticulously documented the process.
First things first. Gather all the tools and supplies needed. The following are required: Hot glue gun, Appropriately sized USB Key (I used a 16GB Kingston DataTraveler 100), A fine point Sharpie pen, an X-acto knife, and a pack of Wrigley’s Doublemint chewing gum. Optionally a ruler or some other straight edge could help. I found the stick of gum just as effective.
Technically speaking, you could use also Juicy Fruit, but that would just be weird.
Step 1: Reverse Origami
You’ll be able to carefully open the wrapper down the side and pull the gum out. Enjoy a little chewing break but save a piece for later.
Unfold the wrapper completely, using the same cereal box technique to open the opposite side. Lay it out flat.
