HI.....Kelly.....Thank you for the suggestion! This sounds really clever
and cheap.....two very wonderful "words". Any hints on stacking and
adhering, displaying work? Where do you store your boxes? Do you repaint
them when dirty?
Does the display look pretty professional when you're setup? I have very
few 3-D pieces.....most, nearly all, are 2-D. Would this still look good?
How many boxes would you suggest getting for a large middle school if you
were to order? How do you use your velcro for folding, unfolding? Do you
use some form of adhersion for keeping boxes from moving during the

I'm so excited about this suggestion....can't you tell? I'm full of
questions and enthusiasm! Can't WAIT til you answer!!!!
