Step 1: Preparing USB Wire
First, we will need to take the rubber insulation off the "plug" part of the USB cable, so it will fit in the mint tin.
WARNING: Doing this type of project may become addicting, and you also need to be really careful when using a knife, i almost cut myself.
As you can see, I'm experiencing difficulties with the tag tool, so i will explain up here. in the first picture, you will see that i am cutting the rubber off of the USB part of the wire. In the second picture, I'm done doing that, see how you can see the metal, that means it is good.
