The USB Drive Heart is exactly what it sounds like. My original idea was to recreate a conversation heart, but as usual my execution turns out something different than I had planned. The design details are not set in stone (rather plaster), so this project can be modified for different styles of hears or anything for that matter.
As for what you put in your USB drive, that is up to you. For me, it is a gift for my girlfriend, so I compiled all of our photos together (we are into photography). You could put music for a MP3 "mix tape" or maybe a series of photos to simulate a treasure hunt. The idea is to be creative.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
Here are the materials:
-USB drive of any size
-plaster of paris
-card stock paper
Step 2: Make the Mold
I do not profess to be a master of plaster, so let me get that out there first. I made my heart-shaped mold out of a manila folder and masking tape. I am not going to go through the whole process because it is pretty simple and can be done a couple different ways. I cut out a strip of the folder and taped it up in the shape of a heart on the rest of the folder. Don't forget to cut a hole for the USB drive.
If I changed anything, I wouldn't have used paper as a mold, but the paper mold did work well enough and took no-time to build.
