How to Make Your Own iPhone Stand…Out Of Paper!

Posted in How To, iPhone, Miscellaneous on 16/07/2013 by J. Glenn Künzler


While I do like to build stuff, origami is something I’ve never mastered. To start off it’s fine, then you reach step 5 and get stuck.

Luckily, Ecostand has put together a pdf with a template and instructions for an iPhone stand, so it should be fairly straightforward.

The one slight catch is that you have to ‘donate’ in order to access the PDF, but on the upside, if it ever breaks or gets crushed, you can just make another one. You can’t say that about other docks

I would also recommend you build this with thick paper or card, as the standard printer paper probably won’t be strong enough.
