We need to gather supplies so heres a quick list of things you will need.

1 Power strip

1 Box ( I picked mine up from a craft store but a shoe box will do.)

1 heavy duty scissors or a cutting blade.

Some craft glue.

some small decorative frames.


Step 2: Building The Sucker

Before cutting you must keep in mind that the hole have to be big enough for a least of one your plug ends to fit in to thread the cord through.

Using a template of some kind, stencil a outline around it (whatever your using as a template ).
This will be one of the holes in the top of the lid.

You can cut as many holes as you need.

If you have a thick box you may want to glue the frames on top first to hide any imperfections from the cut.

Step 3: Putting It All Together.

Once you holes are created plug you gadgets charger into the power strip.

You should bundle and tie up the cables for each charger witha zip tie as well, so cords aren't tangled in the box.

String the end of each charger through a hole.

For USB powerd devices I plugged a generic powerd-USB hub into the power strip, ( Get one at any tech shop) and wired USB cables through the box.

With the box finished you can decorate it to your liking.
