Step 1: Materials

You will only need

*your hand (pretty easy to find!)


Step 2: Let's Start

Take the earbuds and set them on the top finger. Hold with your thumb. This will start the process.

Step 3: Figure 8!

Now take the cord and loop it under the pinkie, up and over the side of the finger facing you. Continue doing this until you run out of cord, making sure that the buds and plug in are at opposite sides. It is kind of like making a figure 8.

Step 4: Almost There....

Now pinch the center where you crossed all the cord. Gently pull off your fingers. (the cord, not your actual fingers! :/)

Step 5: Done!

Now just tuck the buds and the plug into the loops and stick in your bag! To undo, just untuck the buds and plug and pull.

Step 6: Hint

Here's a hint: if your strings are to long (like mine were :/) then you can just wrap around the center.
