For this instructable you will need:
A. Scissors
B.Cardstock, cardboard, thick paper, etc., etc.
C. Tape (or stapler)
D. A printer
E. An iPod with a connector cable (dur)

Step 2: Print It Out!

Using either file at the bottom of this step, insert your card[whatever] into the printer and print the file out.
The custom file is a blank stand, while the other has an iPod shuffle arrow design on it.

Step 3: Cut It Out!

Well, cut out the stand! What else!
Make sure to cut out the lines noted in the close up. The pictures make this much clearer.
Only cut on the solid lines.

Step 4: Fold. Fun. Repeat.

Fold on the dotted lines. All folds are mountain folds. Only the dotted lines. ONLY!

Step 5: Tape. W00t.

Tape or staple the two flaps on the back together. Again, clearer in the picture.

Step 6: Le Fin!

Done! And now, for your in-instructable entertainment, the iPod Stand finished pictures!

    Congratulations to Piers Morgan. Nice, simple design. This iPod stand reminds me of the paper wrapper that encloses the half-sandwich I purchase at the lunch counter.

    Thank you for being the first to comment on my Instructable. I'll try to make more, but until I find something else simple, fun, and frankly, easy, (too many commas) I probably won't.
