iCan’t Stand the Wires!

Thanks to all the iPhones, iPads, work phones, etc. we are left with this tangled mess that I’m pretty sure just about everyone can relate to:

The only thing I may have more of than wires is baby soap thanks to little boys who seem to get dirt in crevices I wasn’t even aware of:


I traced my phone on the empty soap container with a Sharpie.  Note to self: put the Sharpie away before a 3 ft tall creature attempts to write on your dining room wall with it.


Cut the plastic doing your best to not lose a finger or thumb in the process.  Texting would be a total drag without a thumb.  Lay the cut out container on fabric to determine the size you’ll need.


Sand the edges to smooth out any rough edges.  Coat the container with Modge Podge and wrap the container like a present (I put the seam in the back and the bottom).  Let dry 12 hours.


Voila!  I spent a total of 20 minutes on it, used materials I had on hand and still have 8 fingers and 2 thumbs.  Can’t beat that!
