A couple weeks ago I posted a few tips for selling at a craft show. You'll find that post here. I needed something to display my earrings on and didn't want to spend a lot of money. I wanted to make sure that my display didn't distract too much from earrings themselves. I also needed something that had some height to it. After searching and not finding anything I liked, I decided to make my own.
2 framed cork boards. Mine were 11x17 inches (I purchased them at Joann Fabrics. With a 50% coupon, it was less than $6 for both)
2 sets of hinges
ribbon (mine was 1/2 inch)
(1) Attach the 2 boards with the hinges. Make sure you decide how you want the boards to fold before attaching the hinges.
(2) Cut strips of ribbon and decide how far apart you want them. I measured the space between the ribbon and taped them temporarily to the boards.
(3) Use a staple gun to attach the ribbon to the boards.
Here is the board lying flat.
The nice thing is that it can be folded for travel and storage. I kept the background as the corkboard, but you could cover it with paper or fabric before putting on the ribbon if you want a different background.
The finished display:
And here's the final display at my show! It's the perfect display to use with my new earring cards.
This was a quick project and something I can use again!
