Step 1:

First snip the resistor so 5mm is left on each end.
Then do the same with the led but just leave a little more on one side indicating the positive.

Step 2:

Now start soldering the resistor and the wire on the 2 ends of the USB and the led on the end of that!

Step 3:

Now you just give it a glue and touch up,
Then plug it in and... LET THERE BE LIGHT!
