No-Sew Project: Make a Set of Cord Wraps

Handy to have. Great to give.

Today is a great day for making! You can craft a bunch of these cord wraps in a flash, and be guaranteed that they’ll be put to good use. Organize all of the cords in your household – give every family member a different wrap color and say bye-bye to cord squabbles. Make a bunch for gifts – they are great gifts for BFFs, teachers, colleagues, or pretty much anyone on your list! Use a variety of Dritz® snaps and pliers to apply the snap fasteners – super easy with no sewing required at all.
