Folding Stand

Folding Stand for iPod, iPhone

Make a folding stand for an iPod, iPhone or other mobile phone and present your beloved with a customized playlist or video. This craft is similar to the Jukebox CD paper craft, but without the need to burn a CD.

Use the stand with the included jukebox or video background to draw your loved one's attention to it. Place a simple message or your own personalization on the top like "Press Play."

The folding stand was designed to display your iPod and iPhone vertically or horizontally. When not used as a romantic craft, the stand easily folds flat to the size of a business card for storage inside a case or wallet.
