Technology Ties

While preparing to go on vacation, I am always amazed at the number of cords and accessories I need to take for my phone, computer and ipod. They seem to always become a tangled mess on my return and sometimes I wonder if I have any of them behind. So I came up with a simple solution that uses twist ties to help me stay organized.
I started by gathering up some other supplies which included leftover ribbon and some seam binding.
Now the next step I didn't document with a photo, but all I did was fold the ribbon over the twist tie and sewed down on all sides. I then had three lovely ties for my cords.
Super easy and fun to make and took me all of 10 minutes to sew them up.
Just twist them around the cord and they are ready to travel.
Super easy and protects any cord from tangles.
This was by far the easiest recycling project I have created and you can make dozens in about 1/2 hour. Possible options would be scrap fabric and pipe cleaners too.Now that my cords are organized I am ready for vacation again!


  1. What an awesome idea....I am going to try that

  2. GREAT idea.
    I just started a linky party this past Tuesday. It was a great success with over 50 link ups! I would love it if you would participate tomorrow! It's called $10 Tuesdays and it's for things that cost less than $10 and take 20-30 mins (ish) to complete. I love inexpensive and quick projects and I'm guessing others will too ;) Thanks so much for considering.
    PS. I'm GIVING away 50 button pony tailers this month! Come visit and claim yours ;)
