I've seen a few makes on here where people open up a soft toy to put a USB stick in, which look pretty cool, but I want to make my own hard casing for a USB stick. Something very similar to these:

I'd need the USB to have no case, but the only ones I can find online like that are wholesalers. Is it possible to buy them singly, either in the UK or online worldwide? If not, any tips and tricks on opening up the casing to get the stick part out?

It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there's me.

You can get ultra slim ones and build around them. (check out the Sony Micro Vault - this thing is TINY)

I think this is exactly what you're looking for though... A tutorial that shows you how to take it apart and make it into something else (in this case, pez containers!)

I just had also had a question about fima and the USBstick.
I want to cover it up too, but How do I do that?
I have polymar clay, but if I sculp it around the stick, it's hard to pull it out (since I don't want to bake my stick itself ...)
anyone some tips?
