Lilllian Vernon $15 photo display for design menus

Post by Sparklyone on Mon Jun 06, 2011 8:23 pm

As a still-learning newbie, I've been trying to figure out an affordable way to make a design menu board. I started by putting pics of other people's work into a Word doc and printing that out then letting kids pick from the papers. As I painted each face, I replaced the photos with my own work. I finally have enough of my own work to display but since I'm still at an early learning stage, don't want to spend a lot of anything permanent.

I remembered I had this hanging photo display mat for one of my kids and realized it was perfect for my beginners needs! There are 20 spaces for 4x6 photos (12 horizontal, 8 vertical) and a hanging loop at the top. Thought I would share in case this helps any other newbies. Smile I looked it up online since I've had it a while and it's still on the Lillian Vernon website:

It comes w/free personalization - you could even do "Design Menu". Mine had my child's name on it and the letters are stickers that are fairly narrow so not the easiest to read. But they peeled off easily enough with a bit of work so you could always remove them if you didn't like it. I'm going to look for some larger, glittery letter stickers at Michael's (love those 40% off coupons).

Hope this helps someone and please let me know if you are already using this and want to warn about anything that hasn't worked with it! cyclops Very Happy

I see they are offered in pink and blue now, mine is clear vinyl-ish material with a white plastic header at the top. The product pics are ridiculous because they are each against a pink or blue wall so you can't really determine what part is colored. doh.

Those are very much like the "picturepockets" that I've been looking at.

on ebay: http://shop.ebay.ca/picturepocketsusa/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686

I was considering getting the mega-sized one, it holds 40 per side:

Yes, looks almost identical! I love the bigger one but would be concerned the kids might be overwhelmed w/too many choices/take too long to decide..... cyclops
