About: I like to make things for the internets. I also sell a pretty cool calendar at supamoto.co. You'll like it.

Is your iPhone tired of just laying around on your desk? Want it to get on up and move on with its life? Then make a quick stand out of an old credit card or other plastic membership card. All you need is a couple minutes and a pair of scissors.

I just made a similar iPhone stand that uses one club card and the two keychain fobs, but this time I wanted to do it with just one card and it works great.

All right, let's do this for iPhones everywhere.

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Get a Card

This is a plastic membership card from a New York drugstore that I'll never use since I live in California. You can get these in many places. In fact, you've probably been offered one today!

Step 2: Fold!

Folded! In half!

Step 3: Cut!

Now get out those scissors and cut out a shape like this on one side. Repeat for the other side.

Step 4: And Then... Well, That's It, Really

Look at that! Already done! Now just plop your iPhone in and use some cool app. This is a Flip Clock one that goes for 99 cents and mimics a flip clock I have at home so it makes me happy.

    Really great if you use an old iTunes card!!!

    As long as people are happy with either solution, that's cool. Why not both!

    I like this solution since it's smaller and lifts the phone up a bit. That and that it can be unfolded and folded again many times and still work. Hinge fatigue shouldn't be a problem unless it tears.

    But his is cool since it doesn't need scissors.

    Best yet, both can be made when you have some downtime at your desk.
