    on the back of the contact paper with the dimensions from step one, draw a box. [my box was four and a half by one and a half.] optional: if you want to cover the side where the usb cord plugs in, then trace that side somewhere along the width of your box. in the end I didn't want mine to cover that side, but you might like it.

    fill the container [that you don't mind ruining] with water and drop a couple of drops of nail polish into the water. some may sink to the bottom, so drop until it floats. then swirl the nail polish around in the water [I used a toothpick]. place the contact paper face down into the water, pull it out, and let it dry.

    optional step: to cut out the hole where your usb cord goes, push the usb through the contact paper where the plug is [this should make an indention in the paper]. remove the contact paper and cut out the usb hole where the indention is. put the marbled contact paper back onto the charger and be happy.
