Step 1: Gather Your Materials and Tools
-Flathead Screwdriver (or if you have a bottle opener use that)
-A couple of old rolls of films
-A pair of Pliers
-A USB Drive of course (I used a [http://www.sandisk.com/Products/Catalog(1038)-SanDisk_Cruzer_Micro_Skin_USB_Flash_Drive.aspx sandisk cruzer] like this but a 512mb one)
Step 2: Pop Off the Top and Bottom
I used a screwdriver to pop off the top
of the roll of film that you won't be using
as the usb case, but I'm sure you guys
have a better tool to use for this step.
And now pop off the bottom of the roll
that you will be using as the case.
Step 3: Drive Window
And now you just have to make the
hole wide enough for the flash drive
male connector to stick out of.
Step 4: Roll the Film
Now you have four pieces.
First you take off the key ring
off of the drive so you can
have it stick out of the end of
drive once you reattach it.
Secondly unravel the the film
and rip it out or cut it off of the
reel, finally just wrap the film
around the drive and put it
into the film cartridge.
Step 5: Finally Complete the Drive
First of all you put the cap on the
bottom back on this part is a tad
tricky but usually it gets right on
there if you push the sides close
together to make the circle shape
it will be easier.
And now you just put the key ring
back on and you're all set with your
film drive haha enjoy.
