I sit at my computer desk a lot during the day, so I wanted some sort of stand that could hold up my Tamas so that they are at a good viewing angle. I can't view them well when they are laying flat, so I decided to design this stand for them. It's made using the clear plastic from the blister pack they come sealed in. All you need is that and a pair of scissors, though you could probably just as easily make these out of note cards or card stock, or some thin cardboard like a cereal box. Just cut out a square of the plastic, fold it in half and use something to press the crease tight (I run a pencil along the crease while pressing it against the desk). Then you just cut the folded piece into sort of a hook or J shape with a flat base like you see below. Unfold it and you've got a little stand. If you are a kid or are making this for a kid, you'll want to round off the top point. It's a little sharp. I wish I could give you a pattern, but I don't really have one. I just do it by eye.
