There's no need to buy a stand for your iPad, Kindle or Android tablet when you've probably got a DVD case lying around that can do the job. Besides the case, all you need is some string for this DIY stand.
The video above from YouTube user chauppiLu shows you how to make this in less than two minutes: cut out the plastic around the case and tie ribbon or string to the centre edges to keep the case from folding. Easy and inexpensive!
