This idea came after covering my bicycle saddle with leather. I had lots of scrap leather left-over. Since I didn't like the looks of my USB flash drive, here we go.
For this instructable you need:
- an ugly USB flash drive
- some scrap leather to cover it
- impact glue
- X-Acto knife
- a ruler
- a ballpoint pen
There are not many hazards/risks with this job. Watch out what you are cutting with scissors, I know one story involving scissors where a joke ended up with death. Impact adhesives are mostly solvent based, so I advise you to do this job at a well ventilated area, or you may get high (unfortunately :-). But really, don't forget that these adhesives are carcinogenic, really.
First photo below shows the looks of my flash drive after the dress-up. The second photo is the original naked flash drive (ugllyyyy).
Step 1: Measure twice, cut once.
I calculated the necessary length of the strip to wrap around, and cut it using a ruler and a utility knife.
