A cool way to reuse a calendar and make a holder for your cell phone to charge in. Takes 15 min. in front of the TV :)
Step 1: Accessories for the Project
(like the one you get in your stocking stuffer every year and you didn't know what to do with it... before now that is (for those who still uses those, take the one from the previous year)
-Piece of cardboard (to fit inside)
-Embroidery Needle and thread
-Scissors or exacto knife
Step 2: Mark
You'll want to mark where you'll be cutting. Leave as much as you can, as it will help to keep you cell phone in the pocket, but cut low enough to leave enough access to plug your phone with digging for your phone (this is for the phones with the charger input on the side).
Step 3: Cut to Make a Pocket
Cut - see image
Step 4: Give It a Spine
I inserted a piece of cardboard (actually the one off the calendar) to make it a bit more sturdy.
Step 5: Sew
I took some embroidery thread and sewed my way around to create a pocket (I did the 3rd side only for looks)
Step 6: Mark
Make a quick mark as to where you will cut to allow the prongs to go through the holder to the wall outlet.
Step 7: Final Cut
Cut the hole, check that it's the right size.
Step 8: Plug and Charge
