5 Minute DIY Cell Phone Stand
From trash to treasure, this upcycle project turns toilet paper rolls into beautiful cell phone stands in under 5 minutes! You can make a bunch in any colors you like! You can find our free downloadable print and pattern on our site here.
Gather your supplies. FYI detail scissors and/or an X-acto knife works even better. (That's one of those things you learn AFTER you completed a project) FYI: You can use any type of cardboard roll that is large enough in circumference, however a TP roll is the perfect size. Others might need to be cut down.
Using our free download on our site or your own paper, cover your TP roll. (Wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, contact paper works great! Just don't use cardstock as it's a bit heavy to work with.)
Cut out our template pattern that you can DOWNLOAD FREE HERE .
Glue the template together as instructed and then slip it over your tube. Cut along the outline of it. If you're using a typical TP tube it should fit perfectly. If not just adapt it a bit!
Completed! You can find the FULL INSTRUCTIONS/FREE DOWNLOAD HERE.
