You can customize for differently sized devices, or use one of the extra ideas I've provided in the last step.

Step 1: Your Phone Has Big Dreams
Lets help your phone make its dreams come true.
Take a look at the two images. This is a blank pattern for the phone stand.
The measurements are for a Nexus 7 tablet. Keep this in mind for when you print out the droid sheets. If you print them at full size (one per 8.5x11 sheet), they will be just right for a 7" device.
Look at the notes that explain the measurements and size up or down as appropriate.
If you are resizing the pattern, print it out on cheap paper and make a prototype before continuing.
Step 2: Print the Pretty Droid
Print one of each, and glue them to cardboard or card stock.
I printed onto full-size sheets of sticker paper, and then stuck them onto card stock.
Step 3: Artoo Assemble!
Fold the stand base on the dashed lines, and tape the back together.
Notch the back sheet, if desired. It provides a little extra stability.
Fit all of the pieces together as shown.
Step 4: Finishing Touches
Step 5: Dream On!
What does your phone dream of?
- Time travel?
- Being Lost in Space?
