This case is snug fitting and will fashionably protect your flash drive or other usb device.

Step 1: Step 1 - Materials

1 - USB Device
1 - Pen/marker
1 - Pair of Scissors
1 - Ruler or straightedge
1 - Bottle of krazy/nail glue (You could use tape or regular glue as well)
Approx 20 - Playing cards

(Not In The First Picture) I found later in the process of making the case that a razor blade or exacto knife can be very helpful.
<p>awesome idea i need a flash drive so....</p>
Monoblack control is the only way to go.
CLever way to use a cool card you have a ton of (like the land cards for example)
Nah I wouldn't use lands. I would use useless red cards, Who in the right mind would play a red deck? A black white and green deck has served me well over about a year.
Black Blue for the win! Also Red decks are unfair, unfun and uninventive.
Or Circles of Protection, I swear those were almost as common as land cards. I've got a box with 2 inches of CoPs... lol
Those would be great for protecting your drive!
Very nice instructible, I would have done this last step differently, however. Instead of leaving both outside cover cards in half, I would have added one, or possible two that where un-cut to the &quot;cap&quot; of the USB drive (if you were to add them to the base, you wouldn't be able to plug the drive in). This would conceal the usb drive even more.
A problem that I found for that is that the cards warp slightly when they are glued. This might be a problem of the cards I chose, but because of it, if I put cards like these on, they wouldn't warp as much as the body. That would make it look strange. Good idea, though. Maybe if I used better cards it would have helped...
the magic cards i used did not warp at all. What type of cards did you choose to try?
I used some old Yu-Gi-Oh! cards.that could be the problem, or maybe my cards were just a bit warped originally and I didn't notice. I think the best option for Skwalin's idea would be playing cards, though. Then you can just keep them in the box to make sure the cap doesn't fall off and get lost.
I've been thinking of doing this with a mini deck of cards. But I lost those cards :(
Very cool, You could also reduce the card count and the work cutting things out by using craft foam to create the thickness.
Yes, I thought about that and saw a similar instructable that uses cardboard for the thickness, but I really wanted the look and feel of a stack of cards.
You are the first I've seen in awhile who uses Magic: The Gathering cards. I haven't played in so long but it is truly an amazing game
