I originally saw this idea of a Shuriken USB on the internet and decided to make one of my own. I thought of a simple and quick way to replicate the idea using foam cored poster board. So by following these simple steps you too can make your own and have a cool looking USB.

Step 1: Materials
These are all you will need to make your own Shuriken USB:
a x-acto knife
a piece of paper
Foam core poster board
a glue stick
a hot glue gun
Paints (and any extra materials to colour or design your USB)
Step 2: Design
This step is really up to you. Just draw the outline of the design of your Shuriken onto a piece of paper. Mine is a simple four pointed star.
NOTE: your design must accommodate for the size of the USB you are using
Step 3: Transferring the design
Now you will need to transfer your design onto the foam core poster board. Just place your design on the paper over the board and use the needle to plot points onto the board. Then just join these points together by drawing a line on the poster board.
NOTE: do this step twice as your Shuriken will be two cut outs stuck together to accommodate the thickness of the USB
Step 4: Cutting out
Now its time to cut out the Shuriken. Use an x-acto knife and cut along your lines carefully. Remember to cut out two pieces.
NOTE: take time to cut your lines to keep them straight. Make sure your lines are cut properly to avoid tearing the poster board.
