Picture of Cardboard Props: How to make a prop iPhone or iPad
I make props for my Scout districts annual Gang Show, and this year I was asked to provide a prop iPhone, I thought oh hell, how do I make an iPhone? Then one day wondering through Tesco I noticed one of those rubber shock absorbing sleeves for iPhones, It contained a cardboard image of an iPhone.... and then it hit me... I could just do the same

So here it is, Biggsy's prop iPhone!
