Whenever we’re watching something on our phones, we subconsciously wish we had a stand for it. From using pillows to books, the list of things we’ve used to make our small screens stand upright is endless. So why not make a cell-phone stand by yourself? The best part is that it uses something everyone has at home: a toilet paper roll.

What you’ll need:

  • Toilet paper roll
  • X-acto knife or scissors
  • Pencil
  • Paint, markers or washi tape
step1

Step 1:
Cut along a diagonal line on opposite sides of the roll, starting from the same edge. Make sure the cuts are deep enough to reach the middle of the roll. Make another cut to join the previous two and remove the detached smaller part. Use the photos as reference for the cuts.

Step 2:
Place your phone leaning against the diagonal cut surface while sitting on top of the newly formed edge. Mark the thickness of the phone on the toilet paper roll’s sides with a pencil. You should end up with 2 marks on each side.

step 3

Step 3:
Make rectangular cuts along the marked points. Be careful not to make the cuts too deep or else it will cover a large portion of the screen.
