Make Your Own 7" to 8" Tablet Stand

I have a 8" Tablet but couldn't find a cover that I like with a decent stand function. So in DIY spirit, I made one out of cardboard.  The stand folds so it can adjust to both landscape and portrait mode.  The material is light weight, biodegradable and dirt cheap ... being cardboard.  If it gets worn you can always make a new one.  

The secret to its stability is the W-shape. All you need is a pair of scissors, a ruler and the cardboard. I had some white cardboard that just matched the tablet. The triangle cut doesn't have to be precise, just deep enough to hold the tablet but not too deep that your USB cable can't fit anymore.
