Is your iPhone tired of just laying around on your desk? Want it to get on up and move on with its life? Then make a quick stand out of an old credit card or other plastic membership card. All you need is a couple minutes and a pair of scissors.

I just made a similar iPhone stand that uses one club card and the two keychain fobs, but this time I wanted to do it with just one card and it works great.

All right, let's do this for iPhones everywhere.

Step 1: Get a card

This is a plastic membership card from a New York drugstore that I'll never use since I live in California. You can get these in many places. In fact, you've probably been offered one today!
Nice. I will try it.
Simple and effective
Really great if you use an old iTunes card!!!
Very cool...
Very useful Instructable, thank you!

This is so cool, thank you, I would probably jazz it up a bit with some paint and stuff but it looks good. Very handy, thanks.
Thank you
That other guys iPhone stand from a card is better and much easier.<br />
&nbsp;Which one?
if am not wrong i think this one <br>http://www.instructables.com/id/Credit-Card-iPhone-ipod-stand/
As long as people are happy with either solution, that's cool. Why not both!<br /> <br /> I like this solution since it's smaller and lifts the phone up a bit. That and that it can be unfolded and folded again many times and still work. Hinge fatigue shouldn't be a problem unless it tears.<br /> <br /> But his is cool since it doesn't need scissors.<br /> <br /> Best yet, both can be made when you have some downtime at your desk.
Ok I did it and its pretty cool
Great, I made this out of an old gift card and works great, thanks for posting :)

OK, this is TOO BRILLIANT!! took me less than a minute to fix an old issue. Plus, I had a nice gleeful giggle when I put it to use for the first time. <br><br>now showing my BB built-in Flip Clock!<br><br>THANKS!!
