Now using a knife notch out a spot in the back of the computer mouse big enough to fit the wire through. After you have done that cut a piece of wire about six inches long. Then tie a knot in the wire close to the end. Next hot glue the wire in the notch you made earlier. Now put the bottom back on the mouse and put the screws back in.

Step 4: Add the Whiskers
