Don't know of any websites with step-by-step instructions. Do you know how to solder?  
 Both the typical audio XLR and a 3.5mm TRS (aka, 1/8" mini-plug) only have three terminals, You have to configure the XLR end for unbalanced operation (typically jumping pin-3 to shield) since the mini-plug connection will most likly be unbalanced. What signal will you be feeding via the XLR, i,e., stereo headphone output, unbalanced mic input, other?
Lots and lots of examples of low profile right-angle XLRs here.

FWIW, I got a bunch of very low profile right-angle TRS mini-plugs from eBay a few years age, which do the job.
