And that is the main material I’m going to use for this project. It’s the main material for most of my DIY crafts haha.

I use the paper to add a white layer to the project. This is like painting a house haha. Before adding decorations and colors, it has to be white. It will be easy and get more creative when it’s only white. You can use normal A4 paper but if you have thick white paper, that would be cool.

I call this “The phone holder” you might not see it but first I need a piece of cardboard with a closing piece on both. The measures of this going to be 5cm long and about 2.3cm in width. You will see how we can make a holder out of this. And I call it that because it will hold the phone from sliding haha.

The name itself speaks. It’s going to be holding the phone but not from falling but sliding haha. Keep reading to know where I will put this one and how.

Moving to the next pieces, you will see what this will be for but I cut a little wider cardboard. About 4.5cm height and 8.5cm width with two pieces that going to be glued on the edge sides of the big piece. All the pieces as of now still only cardboard haha.

The last thing I will need is a decoration. And that’s where the colored papers will be handy. For this part, I can say it’s optional because give you the ability to choose any decoration you want. However, I choose green lines with circles and blue stars.

Stay tuned to look at how I’m going to place them and where this decoration will be for this DIY craft. I hope you finding this “how to make a cool DIY phone stand” tutorial is easy to read.
