My daughter is an Independent Consultant for Paparrazi.  She needs some cute and cheap jewelry displays for shows.  It needs to be light-weight and easy to set up at various locations.  There aren’t many things lighter than foam board and conveniently it is able to support sewing pins.

A Variety of Display Options

For home storage and display, I crafted some much heavier/sturdier displays.

Check out my previous post to find out how to make these displays.  Between pegboard, paint, frames, and hooks these were a substantial investment compared to what I came up with for shows. My newest displays require foam boards, plate standscontact paper, and sewing pins. If you happen to have a Dollar Tree, check there for all these items.  I scored all my stuff there!

Contact Paper is a Little Challenging

I’m not going to lie, applying Contact paper has inspired a few four letter words from my mouth.  After much frustration, I now know the easiest way to apply it.

The first step.

Start by separating the backing from the paper no more than 2″ width.  Carefully affix that to the foam board using a credit card to smooth out any bubbles.  Slowly pull the back with one hand while you smooth the out bubbles with the other hand.

It’s easiest to smooth bubbles as you go.

This photo shows how to keep the backing attached to part of the contact paper you aren’t working with yet.

Take your time doing this.  It’s much easier to eliminate bubbles as you go than to pull up the paper to get rid of bubbles at the end. Once the foam board is completely covered, flip it over and trim the excess off with a craft knife.

Clean up edges!

Use two plate stands to support the board.  Insert the sewing pins just enough so they don’t poke out the back.  This is perfect for long and short necklaces.

Love the way it turned out!

A row of bracelets or earrings would fit nicely under the necklaces too.  For a smaller display, I cut a foam board in half width wise.  I used some left-over damask contact paper.

Isn’t the damask cute?

I have a roll of cork left from another project.  I’m thinking about applying it to foam board with spray adhesive to make another display board.  I may be updating this post soon with another cute board!
