Are you the type of person who saves odd bits of things, imagining you will find a use for them at a later time? A while back a received a package which had 2 large pieces of cardboard in the packing. I was sure I might need that cardboard in the future, so I set them aside.
After struggling with trying to photograph clipon earrings on pierced earring displays, I came up with an idea.
I took one piece of cardboard and cut a rectangle in the center. Then I stapled the other piece of cardboard on the bottom.
I cut a slit in the bottom and used that little rectangle as a support so that it will stand up. Now I can use this display for my photographs within the lightbox.
