This 'Mamie Janes' craft is a less expensive way to hold your iPad. It is quite shocking that some iPad and tablet cases and holders are sometimes more expensive than the gadgets themselves.
Taking inspiration from a rustic Pottery Barn tablet holder, the final result of this craft is an identical looking stand for $33 dollars less. Who knew that combining a wooden cutting board, a scrabble tile holder and a child's building block with glue would result in a holder that looks so well-made you'd think it was from a store.
While this Mamie Janes craft was created explicitly for use with iPads and tablets, this tutorial can also be put to use as a stand for cookbooks. If you've had experience with them, you understand that they never want to stay open.
