Diffuser for portraits with handheld, off-camera flash? Yongnuo YN560-II

I'm curious to know what people might do to get close to the sort of light that would be produced by an umbrella or a larger soft box when I'm handholding my flash. I want to do this for taking portraits where I might not have the opportunity to bring a light stand or an assistant.

Should I mount the flash on the camera and angle it to a bounce card? Should I get a specific plastic diffuser? Or a small soft box that I could carry around with me on the flash?

Any thoughts on the subject are much appreciated. Thank you!
