You should find something that would work as the new USB flash drive body….
There are many things that might fit, but the best things are small toys….
If it’s a hard plastic and the body is not hollow, then you will need to use a drill….
In the examples I show, the “alien” head was very hard plastic, and I needed to drill all my way to make space for the USB circuit…
For soft plastics, you can work with a small knife….
