Make A Mirror Stand With Cardboard

A useful stand for a small mirror can be made out of  cardboard and glue.  Ladies can use it for an additional make-up aid, and an easy to store and carry replacement for a more bulky stand alone mirror.  Men can use it in the shop, or for trimming the mustache, trimming nose hairs, picking zits, etc. I like it because it allows you to work with both hands without having to hold on to the mirror.

Step 2: Make Stand From Cardboard

Cut a piece of cardboard 24in. by 6 in. wide.  The base of the stand is simply the last six inches of the piece of cardboard, folded so as to form an "L".

Step 5: Add Cardboard "Stop" As Shown

Here, just a couple of pieces of cardboard about 1 in. by 3 in. are glued in place to act as a "stop" for the stand support piece. To make the stand more permanent and not as portable, simply glue or make clips to hold everything together tightly.

Step 6: Make Optional Mirror Holders

To hold the hand held mirror in position, I cut out four pieces of cardboard, cut to fit by tracing around the mirror handle, then using a bandsaw to cut them out.  When glued to gether, and then in position, they make a holder for the mirror.

Step 7: Attach Mirror of Choice To Stand

Position mirror of choice on stand.  The visor mirror is simply clipped onto the top as shown, and the hand held mirror is held in place by the pieces we cut and glued on earlier.  Project complete!
