A fashionable way to bring your cords to school
School’s already here. For sure, you’ll need your earphones, charger, and other cables to keep your gadgets powered up during the school day. And, for sure, all these cables can cause clutter inside your bag or in your pocket; eventually, this can result in the malfunctioning of your cords. So, here is a simple way of getting ready and organized, allowing you to bring all the cords you need the easy way. You can do this hack yourself before heading to school.
You will need:
– 1/4 yard fake (or real) leather
– snap buttons
– x-acto knife
– metal ruler
– matte cutting board
As you can see from the list, the materials for this are pretty straightforward. We created three cord rolls – one small, one medium, and one large.
Here is a not-exactly-to-scale but informative illustration on how to measure your material for each option.
- Medium: Holds a phone charger, headphones, auxiliary cord, and USB cord
- Small: Holds a wall charger for your phone
- Large: Holds a laptop charger, headphones, Jambox charger, and more!
Cut your piece to size. We’ll start with the medium-sized roll. The nice thing about cutting fake leather is that you can use a X-acto knife and a metal ruler to get super straight lines. Win!
Now that you have your piece, cut small pieces that will serve as loops for your cables.
And look at that! Cords and a charger all in just one row.
To add the snap, use a pencil to mark the two places where your roll meets. Be sure to do this with all of your cords in place.
Push snap buttons through and secure both sides.
That’s a wrap!
