Step 1: The secret is in the shape

You'll have to draw this weird shape before cutting it.

The top line is straight, as the bottom and flanks.
Remember the pattern is symmetrical (mirrored).
Few try might be required ;)

Step 3: USB cable and and of the first phase

Now cut a little cross shaped hole and insert the USB cable through.

Phase 1 is complete.

It's usable as-is but as I use it for dev, thus touching the screen, I made a little improvement to make it more stable.

Step 5: Put the USB cable back and voilà !

Put the USB cable back and voilà :)

Enjoy your new [customizable] phone stand :)

I'm not an artist so mine is barely as is ... maybe some of you will color it or paint it ... I'd be interested to see the result :D

Have fun :)
Awesome !
