Make a Smart Phone STAND on its HEAD!!!
AMAZING Inspiration by Michelle Frae Cummings
I have had my iPhone 4S for less than a year. And in this short time I have searched high and low for a suitable holder/stand on line and in retail stores.
They do exist, but unfortunately, they only work for phones with out their protective case.
So I have suffered as I am unwilling to leave my phone un-protectcted.
I wanted something so I could snap-photos and video with ease on a steady surface.
I wanted something that would allow me to listen to music effortlessly or watch instructional videos while I worked on a project.
I tried to cut a slit in the lid of a Tupperware container to hold the phone. Fail.
I tried to make a wire stand out of large paper clips. Fail.
I tried to make a (awkward) holder of wire, chunky beads and duct tape to shoot video... Epic fail!
Then recently I searched for tips on how to take better selfies with the iPhone. In reading the article, the writer suggested placing the phone in play dough to hold it up. At first I was horrified that anyone would use play dough, that can't be good for the phone, right?
A light bulb went off and I thought of Amazing Mold Putty!
I simply covered the bottom portion of my phone with press and seal. Then I mixed equal amounts of Amazing Mold Putty parts "A" and "B", using half of each container. I made a nice solid round ball, pressed lightly onto a hard surface, then pressed in the bottom of the phone to about half way into the ball. I pressed the putty around the phone and held in place with my fingers until the putty began to harden.
After it was set, I trimmed out a small piece on each side of the base so the holder could accommodate the phone upright and side ways.
Now I have a perfectly stable holder that will not leave a mark or a scratch on my phone and will work anywhere, any time.... Thanks to Amazing Mold Putty and Amazing Crafting Products!
