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 :)

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Accessories for the Project

-Pocket Calendars
(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

Voila!

    You can definitely try to cut the whole bigger to put it on the head of the charger but my first instinct would be that it weight of the phone might force pull your charger out of the socket (ah gravity!).
    If you plan to do the whole thing out of cardboard you might find it hard to put your phone in the sleeve except if it's really thin like a cereal box.
    I was just looking at some cool stuff made out of bike inner tubs, I'm sure you could make this with it.
    Enjoy :)

    I've seen a commercial version of this and like how this one is easy to make on its own.
