Do you ever find that your MP3 player's or phone's ear buds are really annoying to try to store without getting the cords all tangled up with themselves or other things? I have tried several ways to store them, but they always seem to get tangled and/or are difficult to get them in and out of whatever I'm keeping them in. I think I've finally figured out a good way to keep them nice and tidy.
I'll do a quick tutorial, but you can recycle any type of little container (my inspiration actually came from Pinterest using an Altoid tin. I don't buy Altoids and apparently no one else I know buys them either - trust me, I asked!). I had accumulated a few of these plastic containers from when I made these Pin Cushion Mason Jars.
*Empty containers (just big enough to hold your earbuds)
*Scrapbooking paper of your choice
*Clear adhesive (I used both my Xyron machine and Mod Podge)
*Paper trimmer or scissors
1) I started by cutting a piece of scrapbook paper to fit the inside bottom of my container. Since the bottom is the same size as the lid, I just cut 2 pieces at the same time.
2) Then, I ran the 2 pieces through the Xyron, making sure the adhesive goes on the side you want showing (I put them upside down going through the Xyron).
4) I searched the internet for different images for headphones, but decided that it would be too time consuming to print it and cut it out and then glue it on the lid! I remembered that I have a Cricut cartridge called "Indie Art" that has some fun images - one of them being a cassette tape. I cut this out and simply adhered it to the lid using my small Xyron machine and also Mod Podge.
Hopefully, I will have another project for you soon...I really need to get some "non-blog" things done this week, so hopefully I can squeeze in something else this week.
