No Wall Space for your Timeline, No Problem

Save your walls for book shelves and put your timeline on foam board. It works great! Get two large pieces of foam board from an art supply store (one 48 x 60 and 40 x 60). Cut the 40 x 60 into two pieces (20 x 60) and tape them with cloth tape to the edges of the larger center board. Thus it became a tri-fold display, much like the science project display boards, but much larger. The light weight foam board stands very well, moves easily by folding up the outer boards over the center board to be put out of the way when not in use. I discovered this wonderful use of foam board when I needed to display my Timeline for conventions. I had people wanting to buy the foam board display.
