Initially, I’d headed over to makeprojects.com, and chose to make a light box. Apparently a light box is, or some version of it, is what a photographer would use to… Take a pretty picture? I don’t know. Either way, mine came out terribly. So instead, I decided to try out instructables.com! A much better choice (for me anyway).
Today we’re going to make a credit card iPhone stand! This tutorial is unbelievably easy to follow, and lucky for me, it’s technology-based!
Find an old credit card or one of those supermarket discount cards, since like the website says, no one hardly uses those.
I chose to use a now-defunct Forever 21 gift card. The thickness is about the same as a typical credit or savings card.
Fold the card in half.
Ta-da! Sorry for the cropped image. I haven’t had a manicure in weeks.
This is where it gets wild. With a scissor, cut the folded card like you would if you were making a Valentine out of construction paper in second grade. Like so…
Bye bye, old card.
Hello, iPhone stand!
Or in this case, highlighter stand.
How do you think I’m taking these pictures?
It was definitely not the most difficult thing I’ve ever done, making this iPhone stand, but cutting weird shapes out of credit cards can be dangerous! Overall, this was a fun little DIY experiment… And went much more smoothly than my silly light box.
For the record, it does actually hold my iPhone!
