Using tape makes the SPEAKER BUDDY permanently 3 dimensional. If you travel a lot, you might want to take it with you, but flimsy and curvy isn't good. There are a couple of ways to make this device easy to travel with. If you cover the overlapping parts with tape prior to folding it, you can then tape it into its desired shape so the tape only contacts tape. In other words, if you tape onto tape you can peel off the tape without ruining the paper beneath. This is one way to make it so that you can travel with the iPad SPEAKER BUDDY. You might even be able to un-fold it and slide it inside your iPad case so that it will be there for you when you need it. Just make sure to put a few extra pieces of tape somewhere that you can un-stick when needed. Just fold a little bit of the end on itself.
There is also another way to cut it that allows for folding and unfolding it without any tape.
