Credit Card Phone Stand

Hi, I had this idea to make a wee collapsable stand that I could keep in my wallet for watching videos on my phone. I originally planned to use plywood but I didn't have any to hand and then realised that old plastic cards are maybe a better material as everyone has them lying around serving no purpose. So here's a way to make your unloved cards useful again.

In the video I use a drill and ruler etc. but all you really need is a pair of scissors and a card, even a business card will do but plastic ones will last longer.

Hope you enjoy the video and if you do, please consider voting for me in the 'hack your day' competition :)

    Cool project! Those cards are stronger than I thought! Any chance you would be willing to post written steps and photos to go along with your video?

    I would just like to get the dimensions of the cuts (I plan on just using scissors). Of course, the card is cut in half.
