If you have an extra box laying around, it can become a stylish solution for a laptop stand. Grab the template online for free, along with a craft knife and you're in business. Word of warning: Pick out some sturdy cardboard, or cut out two of each piece (cutting the slits where the pieces join a little wider). This is because I made this stand twice, using too-flimsy cardboard both times, and they both collapsed after a few weeks despite my random efforts to fix them. However, thick cardboard will do the trick just fine.
