The onslaught of DIY iPhone stands continues. This time around we find ourselves in a cafe with a warm beverage and the need to watch BMX stunt videos. Luckily we remembered to bring along our nice utility scissors and the Barista was kind enough to include a cup sleeve with the drink. The overall execution and reuse of recyclables on this project should gain high marks for those keeping score at home.

I make cool stuff and write about other people making cool stuff on makezine.com. If you have something you think I should see, send me a tip.

    This was a great tip. I used one from an intelligentsia coffee sleeve and it worked perfectly.

    I like the MobileRiser that I bought at newpcgadgets.com. It actually attaches to the iPhone and stands it up. Low profile so you can’t tell it’s there. I would prefer to have something that you don’t have to carry along with you.

    I’m super happy with my backlip case. I just purchased it online at http://www.backflipcase.com. The kickstand is attached to the back of the soft case. It stands your iPhone both vertically and horizontally and folds away flat to slip in your pocket!
