An earlier post introduced you to the concept of coiled phone cords, and now this DIY tip shows you how to transform a mint container box into a holder for your earbuds.


The project’s quite simple, and embellished with a little fabric — I’d use duct tape.

I like this idea as a way to contain my earbud cords when I travel — I use Bluetooth headphones, but I actually prefer earbuds for sound quality, especially on airplanes.

Originally, I thought I’d leave off the key ring and clip. But the more I’ve thought about the final product, I’m convinced the clip is a necessary addition. I think, at least for more manliness, I’d add a carabiner, rather than the daintier clip used in the tutorial.
