Often we need a mobile phone support, either to support the desk, to watch a recipe video while cooking, to charge or simply not to leave the device played by the house. So today I'm going to show you how to make a home phone holder using cardboard just cardboard. This DIY project will literally cost you nothing. See the steps below.

1 hourDifficultyEasy

Step 1: Prepare the cardboard

I used a piece of cardboard about 50 cm long. 

Then I marked with a pen 13 cm wide and prepared to cut.

Step 2: Cut the cardboard according to the defined width

Now just cut the cardboard taking into account the width of 13 cm that you defined previously, as shown in the photo.

Step 3: Base Mobile Support

Draw a line with of 1.5 cm, 3.5 cm, 7.5 cm, 9.5 cm to the left, precisely (follow the photo). Next, gently cut using a paper cutter, but be careful not to cut the cardboard completely.

Step 4: Define where the charger cable will go

Make a square with a width of 2 cm between the first and second line on the left. Measure the length and draw the square in a way that is in the center.

Step 5: Cut the hole for the cell phone charger

Cut out the square with a papercutter. This is the hole through where the cell phone charger cable will go through.

Step 6: Turn the cardboard on the other side

Turn the cardboard upside down as shown, and draw the line where the stand will bend later (count 12.5 cm from the last line you drew).

Step 7: Draw a line on the other end of the cardboard

Hold the other end of the card and draw a 21.5 cm line to the left, as I show in the photo, and two other lines 32.5 cm and 42.5 cm counting from right end to left.

Step 8: Make a cut

Cut lightly the lines drawn with the papercutter. Do not cut the cardboard to the extreme.

Step 9: Shape the cellphone charger

Go back to the left end of the cardboard and start framing the mobile holder. As you see in the photo, put glue on the right side where the tube is.

Step 10: Paste to the rest of the cardboard

Fold the piece with the square and glue the part where you placed the glue by attaching the other piece of cardboard.

Step 11: Fold the remaining cardboard

Next, to create the body of the home cell phone holder, simply fold the right end by the lines you drew, forming a triangle.

Glue the parts at the end.

Step 12: Route the charger cable through the hole in the mobile holder

Now that your stand is ready, simply run the charger cable through the hole you cut.

Step 13: Support your cell phone

Your cell phone holder is ready!! Now you can use your cell phone support at home.
