I thought I’d show you how to make a deco USB stick with your initial today.
I’m still going through all the entries to my give away tonight so please be patient for another day while I pick the top 3 for you to vote on. There are so many awesome entries and I’m having a tough time picking ^_^
In the mean time I’m thinking about deco a lot lately! I just did my new camera today and I can’t wait to show you all photos of it 😀
Firstly pick a USB stick in a cute colour.
This one is pretty cool because you can fold it in on itself.
Now lay your red jewels in the shape of your initial. I made this one for James’ Mum so I used a “P”. It’s important to lay the jewels out so you can get the shaped exactly right and make sure the jewels line up exactly right.
Stick the red jewels in place using epoxy glue.
Now start filling in the gaps. As you can see from the photo below I am using a very basic grid pattern for the jewels, this means that the go in completely straight rows both vertically and horizontally. Because of the curve in the “P” I had to compensate with other jewels around it.
Continue the pattern on the bottom as well. Once it’s dry keep going onto the other side. Once you are finished you have something like this:
Very simple and quick but it really personalizes your USB beautifully! Let me know if you make your own deco USB stick!
