This is my first instructable so please be kind ;)

Most coffee places nowadays provide with a cardboard 'sleeve' when you purchase a coffee to-go.

A lot of the times these sleeves go to waste after their usefulness is outlived. i.e. the beverage is no longer hot.

I decided I could use one to turn it into a cheap (free!?), portable iPhone or Smartphone stand at my desk.

This is the most affordable solution I have found ;)


Step 1: What You Need

This is a very simple instructable.  You only need three items (and one is optional)
1 - A coffee sleeve
2 - A pair of scissors
3 - A writing instrument (optional) - a pen, pencil, marker, crayon, etc.
That's fantastic! The photos of the sleeve are virtually all you need. Very simple, and much better than the business-card-based stand I'd made, which was okay, but the material wasn't nearly as sturdy as this sleeve.<br><br>I tend to drink (boring) black brew at home, but I'll make sure my wife picks up a sleeve for me... or maybe take some from a co-worker. Hmm. All I know is that the next sleeve I spy is MINE. <br><br>Nice job!
Thank you very much for your feedback.<br><br>I am glad you'll be able to enjoy it. I already have two improvements to make to the original version (from co-worker's feedback as well).<br><br>I'll post them when I get a chance.<br><br>Thanks again.
Ha! - Impressed or bored? :)
