Being a person who loves having things organized, I hate having a mess of cords (laptop, phone, iPod, etc.) on my desk while I work. Something I really like about the Macbook charger is the small clip that's attached to the cord. Not essential, but definitely handy. That's what inspired me.
Previously I had tried organizing cords with blu tack, but that became messy and a pain to scrape off.
Then I had the idea of making clips. I could make them out of Sugru (only I had none) or out of any carve-able plastic. Eventually I used Sculpey. Even though Sculpey becomes pretty hard after you bake it, it works really well as a cord holder. At first I thought it should be a flexible material, but the Sculpey proved that hard material works fine. Supplies
Sculpey (any color)
Double sided tape
Knife or razor blade
