Expensive phone stands and docks have their place if you’re looking for charging cables or other features, but if you just need a place to prop up your phone where you can see it, all you need is a piece of cardboard thick stock paper. This video shows you how it’s done.
The video is only about a minute long, but it tells you everything you need to know. You’ll need a piece of cardboard or thick stock paper about 12 cm by 15 cm (it doesn’t have to be exact), and a pair of scissors. Score it down the centre, fold it in half, cut out the stand shape, and you’re done. You can do the same thing with an old loyalty card that you don’t mind cutting up, as long as it’s sturdy enough to hold your phone upright (Here’s another method that uses a credit card.)
We’ve shown you other cardboard tricks like this before, including how to use your phone’s box as a stand, how to turn a suction cup into a phone stand, and even how to build one out of lego. Suffice to say, the possibilities are endless.
