I love watching netfilx in my bed at night, but I got tired of propping up my phone so I made this phone holder and wanted to share it with you!


  • medium sized cardboard box
  • craft scissors or cutting tool
  • duck tape
  • hot glue


Step 1. Draw out two identical shapes (as shown in the photo) with the following dimensions: (see photo for details.)

  • 5” tall along the back
  • 4 ½” long on the bottom
  • The section that holds the phone in place in the front is 2” tall, ½” across and ½” down. From here you make a horizontal line that is 1”.
  • At the top of the phone stand, make a horizontal line that is 2” long.
  • Take your ruler and set it at the end of the top line and the line where the phone is supported. Make a diagonal line to connect these two points.

Step 2. Measure and cut out another cardboard piece that is 5” wide and 2” tall

Step 3. Measure and cut a piece of cardboard that is 3 ½” across the bottom, 2 ¼” across the top and 3 ¾” tall.

Step 4. Measure and cut out a triangle that is 2 1/4 “ wide 1 3/4 “ tall

Step 5. Glue the backs of the two main pieces together leaving a 5” space in the front.

Step 6. Glue on the front piece on that is 5” x 2”.

Step 7. Glue on the piece that supports the back of the phone.

Step 8. Glue the triangle on top.

Step 9. Cover with duck tape.

All finished!

Pin this for later. . .
