The guitar pick idea is good but they are usually too small and flexible.
 
I usually go down to the local tap plastic store and get a sheet of whatever will work for about 5-10 bucks and cut a boatload of "prying etc.." tools from that.
 
take a pod with you and try the various materials and thicknesses.
 
(now that is some serious DIY!)
 
The apple spudger tool (flat end) works well also. the key is patienceIts like a flathead but its made from non conductive material and dose not hold a static charge.

Really though, the key is patience.
Just keep going around it like a bicycle tire. you will usually get one side up first.
 
Just keep going around...it will pop.
 
I will also admit to using a metal paint scraper. wouldn't recommend that unless your reeeeeeeeely careful.
 
hope this helps.
 
cheers
