ok so instructable number two. so this one came to me when I posted my last one and I saw the jury rig contest and it suddenly hit me that there was a much quicker and easier method to achieve the same sort of result. so using only a pen, credit card and a pair of scissors this stand was created.

now I've entered it in the epilog contest as well because I thought I would be a good idea to make them from styrene sheet plus you could make these in to maded to order business cards from different materials with your name etched on them.

Step 1: Gather Your Your Bits

so grab any unwanted credit card or similar sized card you don't really use any more. mine is a card I was given when I attended a scaffold training course as you can see in th second picture it's also a usb flash drive
<p>If you cut the slot slightly larger than your phone, and you have a thick card, you can adjust the angle of the card to adjust the angle of the phone without cutting the corner off, or you can cut it off and still adjust it.</p>
Rediculous how simple this is. ive been thinking for a frw days i need to fibd something credit card sized and bam. you just knocked out the simplist solution. thanks :)
Very clever, thank you! I have some corrugated plastic (like politician's lawn signs are made of) that should work perfectly! &nbsp; :-)
That's ingenious!!!
Nice job! <br> Ken
Wow, great idea, hey can we make a few more angled slots for phone for upto three tilts, like say 30, 45 and 60 degrees, I guess you'll have to round off the bottom instead of a flat cut, will try it on my expired credit card tomorrow morning ..
Beautifully simple and practical. <br>TYSM!
Wow I've made a few phone mounts and this one is amazingly simple and compact.
thank you trying to make a tripod that fits in my wallet now.
I just tried it out with a regular card with my Galaxy S3...unfortunately it doesn't hold well :S maybe the card was too flimsy and I have to use a thicker card like yours.
ah I've also tried it with my old gym members card which is slightly thinner than a standard credit card and had the same problem. <br> so all I did was add an extra piece of insulation tape but make it into a T shape when pushing it on also make sure the slot is a nice snug fit so the slightest of pressure is required to put it on. T piece should look like the additional image I have added to the instructable sorry about blurry image
when i saw the thumbnail i though you cut a slot in your phone, haha
haha not that brave with a new phone haha
fo another one you should put bits of plastic on the stand so it looks like the phone is cut
yeah that could tie in with the one instructable I've seen where it makes your laptop screen look see through but do it with your phone so you can see the back of the card <br>
That's ok, I just wanted to know the ending 😀
Hey... It's not finished :(
hey i'm sorry don't know whats happened there but I've now added in the missing text
I likey! I'm always trying to find where to prop up my phone so my kid can watch yo gabba gabba. And as they are so slippery it always ends up falling.
yes or some one knocks the table my old s3's screen got smash when my kid was watching one of her films on it. although it didn't help when the person that knocked the table also stepped on the phone when it hit the floor haha <br>
I love it.
thank you very much
Simple.. I love it. (bonuspoints if you use a major platinum credit-card for this :))
hmm platinum is a bit out my league main thing was I have limited space in my wallet and the card I used only gets used once in a blue moon when either backing up my phones data or transferring files from my friends pc's which don't have any wireless capabilities so now it gets used more and warrants its place in my wallet.
In a world filled with over complication, here is a simple invention that works like a champ! Great work!!!!
thank you
A nicely documented and clear first Instructable! Nicely done.
thank you very much
Really good idea!
