With no real Internet (except for my phone which the tiny screen is hard on my eyes) I was doing some thinking. Many times when I want to photograph a card I try to find some way to prop up the card. Looking out the porch window I noticed the cloths line with clothespins. I had some Popsicle sticks and tongue depressors from a previous project and I remembered my son making an easel picture frame some 30 years ago. With supplies in hand and a little hot glue I put together a couple card holders.
With one Popsicle stick as a support it seemed a bit Topsy. A gentle wind might just blow it over so I tried a tongue depressor instead...still not very sturdy. So next I did 2 Popsicle sticks. I guess it's OK but I think it still might fall over especially if there is alot of "Embelly's". These all will work for a quick photo shoot inside and most of us crafter have clothespins and Popsicle sticks laying around somewhere. Plus there is no measuring and no special tools needed. But I am on a quest to find a sturdier solution. Let me see what can be done with a few tools now that I'm home and have more access to more stuff!! Until I figure something else out, give these a try for a quick, simple, and cheap card stand.
