Hi everyone, sorry I have been so quiet recently. I have been busy with lots of engagement party planning. Today I am going to show you a new take on a DIY I tried a little while back. You can find my original Iphone Stand Tutorial here. As it seemed to be so popular I thought I would show you a simpler way of making this without any sewing.
First off you will need to gather your supplies, you will need:
- Thick card
- Knife or scissors
- Decorative paper of your choice
- Ribbon or Double sided tape
Take your card (this time I used a cardboard box) and cut it into 4 rectangles. Two pieces should measure 11.5cm by 6cm, one 11.5cm by 5cm and the last 11.5cm by 9cm. The Largest piece will form the base.
Next you want to decorate the pieces of card in your chosen paper. I used a thin, tissue paper, so I glued it to the front using Mod Podge and tucked the edges around the back (below). Then I cut out a square to fit the back side and glued that on too.
However you decide to do this you will want to make sure both sides are covered fairly neatly as they will both show. You could even paint it if you don't have any paper you like.
Once your card is covered you will want to create the 'hinges' for your stand. You will need 4 pieces of ribbon, at least the length of all of your pieces of card when they are lined up in together. If you don't have ribbon you can use double sided sticky tape to make your own like I did. Simply find some paper and stick it to the double sided tape, then cut off any excess.
Thats it! You should now be able to fold it up as below and your Iphone will happily sit on its pretty new perch.
