I saw where someone had used an over the door shoe holder. It appears that a 4x6 pic would slip right into the pockets and you could hang it from your tent. I plan on getting one. Smile

I don't want any displays near my table. I want the kids as far away from it as possible. I had my water spill into my Starblend powders when a child bumped it:-(

yeah I thought of that!

I think I will explore the easel idea or Perry's idea further!

Very Happy

I have two easels that I use with poster frames from Michael's Craft Store. I have one standing beside my table and the other one as a table top display (I tape the table top one down when windy, to the table.)

The frames have removable trim, to change images as needed and the glass is plastic, so they won't break easily nor are they heavy to carry.

I do, but being the technologically defunct individual that I am, I must ask you to pm me your email address, so you will get them LOL I have not yet been successful in posting pics here without Metina's help. I'm hoping to try the tutorial in the next few days. Smile

Criss - I think I use the same poster frames that you do!



I cover the back of the board with vinyl book cover stuff, and laminate my photos - super easy to change things around!

I bought one of the teacher charts on Amazon.com and it works great. You can get a stand for it too, but I thought I might try it first attaching it to whatever. At restaurants I zap strap it to the blinds. It's far enough away so the kids can crowd around that and not be in my 'no kid zone'. At parties there's usually something to hang it from like the fireplace mantle or something.
You have to cut the 4x6 photo down to 5" high by just under 4" to slide in easily. The plastic doesn't cover the entire photo so they're not waterproof unless they're laminated. I like putting a 'name' to each photo so they can just tell me what they want as there may be one type of butterfly or dragon to choose from. It folds up great. You just fold it acordian style and then in half and it slides in my bag. I haven't tried it at a large event yet as I just recently got it.
I was thinking it'd be useful if I ever did PPF as I could put a sign per row with prices.

I use the vinyl shoe holder thing to slip 4x6 pics into... folds up small into my fatmax. I also like that they can't remove the pic easily or get mustard on my photos. You do have to weight the bottom down for wind. (It's in my gallery)

But that teacher chart thing looks pretty awesome!

Sure is Kristal Smile
I just use the blue tacky stuff, to hold my pics in place, then I can arrange it however and whenever.

I love the ideas in this thread. Thanks!

I'm pressed for time, so I'm going to start with a poster frame. Hopefully, Michaels has this. I have a portable easel so I can use that. The pocket this is nice for customization and portability. I don't know how I would hang it though.

I use a light poster frame with like Criss has pictured. I made a handle out of duct tape for the frame and sitit on my office depot rolling cart with the handle pulled completely up of course and just lean frame on the handle secured with the duct tape. I have over 60 designs to choose from on my poster frame from walmart. Cost me $10.00. I like the teacher chart idea. I was going to use this for my glitter tattoos but kinda costly.

I went to my local real estate agent and got their used for sale signs that are made of that lightweight corflute stuff.

Then, because I love making things like this and have a laminator, I laminate each of the photos. I attach velcro in tiny bits on the back of the photos and stick them to the boards so I can remove, add, change my pics quick as.

I have 3 boards- cheek, half and full face which are set to a budget so the parents say "just choose from this board" or whatever.

It is all plastic, so waterproof, seemless and I attach them to my tent with a hook at the top and ribbon.

Really simple and so so cheap to make.

Page protectors taped together! I loved it when I made it in a pinch. Super cheap, huge and light weight.
