So I was wanting to watch Napoleon Dynamite. But I didn't have a way to prop up my iPhone. I went online to look for instructions on creating any kind of make-shift stand but all I came up with was some triangle thing made out of a dollar bill and also a retail item called the Bat Rest. The Bat Rest is a great idea... but I wanted something NOW.

Will it scratch my phone?
No it won't scratch your iphone if you do it right. Check out the video responses to see the stand done with the plastic-coated paper clips. Also notice how the ends of the paper clip are bent outwards so when you rest the phone on the stand properly, those tips don't even touch your phone.
