Nobody uses floppy disks anymore so why not turn that unused floppy into a convenient way to hide your things from prying eyes...

So today I present:

Step 1: Dissasemble the floppy

This is relatively easy, just make sure that you don't break the disk. I used a pocket knife and cut the places where the corners are held together. Put your disk aside for now.

Step 2: Find the things you want to hide

Now you find something you want to hide, in this case I wanted to hide an SD card with some sensitive information (see picture). You can use anything that is thin enough.

Step 3: Make a hiding place

Now we need to cut a space for the object to sit in, I traced and cut an SD card sized hole in the disk

Step 4: Put it back together

Now you need to put the thing back together. You don't need the soft things but you need the disk. I simply taped the bottom and used the clip to hold it together.

Step 5: Final thoughts.

You are done. I sugest adding a label to your disk to fool those trying to steal your data.

I wish I'd thought of a floppy disk. My instructable about hideing SD cards inside Gameboy games has more misdirection,though.

I don't know if you were being sarcastic but.... My brother has a 512 MB SD-card.....

I was being sarcastic. You can get 16GB SDHC cards! That's like 2 full DVDs in the size of your thumb.
