Subject: Display stands (help) for 4 X 4 tiles
I am in need of finding the display stand for the 4 X 4 tiles. I don't have a drill for making the holes to hang them so I have to go with the stands. Is there a site on the internet that sales them in bulk? I need at least 50. I would consider making the ones that are made with a dinner fork. If someone has the link for the directions on doing it with the forks would you post it please or email it to me? I had it saved but due to a virus a few months ago I lost everything.

I use the 3 prong drapery hook bent as shown in the archives. I also used a metal hanger and bent it in a shape to hold it. I'll try to find the instuctions for the drapery hook. I use two per tile.

I don't have a source, but I made the tile pictures and then mounted them on a cheap coaster from the dollar store. There were 6 in a package for $1. I just had to punch holes thru their cardboard side and the cork side. The Dollar Tree had these in with the kitchen towels in a clear plastic case. These were ever so easy to make and oh, so light. Just thought I'd pass this info on.

I don't remember the site for this...but I think you can get an idea from the picture.

These work well too.
VERY CHEAP!!! Use good thick card stock.

Thanks so much to everyone who responded to this post.
Believe it or not I am working on the favors for next year's family reunion which will be in May 2007. I made one just the other day; my first tile. I am mounting the "Vance" family crest onto the tiles. Will be printing out a sheet for everyone to go along with the family crest tiles as each thing on the crest represents something.
Betty, your idea sounds easy enough.
Shirttails, what a neat coaster idea. Those would make great gifts.
Roberta, That is the fork that I was talking about. I like those....it's just wondering if I could master that crimping with the tines but I really don't think it would be hard.
Hey! I like that easel idea.
I am liking this tile thing so now I have different ideas on how to make them stand. I am going to make some of the tiles; "Some do Jane Fonda, I do Sara Lee"; Judy sent me what she designed for doing these on the tiles.
Thanks a bunch,

Whoa! I used the coasters in place of the tile. I still made them hanging. You would have to treat your photo with something in order to use it for a coaster. I just saw the coasters were the same size, lighter to carry, and something easy for me to do.

Thanks for sharing your ideas for the stands. That has always held me back because I coudn't come up with a stand. The stands are not cheap when you need a lot of them tyhey can be expensive.

I made some hanging ones and used the tabs from a soda can glued to the back with
e-6000 They worked great.
