Since the pen drives we use daily have no fun element in it, we suggest you to try this DIY project. Make a small adorable mural with clay, such as a donut. Stick the pen-drive inside the clay leaving out the drive’s metal end. Once you have done that take out the PD and let there be a cavity in the clay mould. Then, go ahead and bake the clay design. Take it out and fill some glue in the cavity, now place the PD back in it and you're good to go.
