I found this site the other day and figured I would build one. 
http://publiclab.org/wiki/foldable-spec

First get a nice clean DVD, a razor blade, and some thin strong cardboard.  
Then Download these directions: http://publiclab.org/sites/default/files/8.5x11mini-spec3.8.pdf

Here is my result on my 70$ Moto-G

Then Does it work?
Yes it does, here is the fluorescent light result. 

Not quite as good as the C12666MA, but for only some cardboard, tape, and an old DVD the results are not bad at all. 

Thanks Public Lab, you earned a donation :)
