I have done portfolios several different ways,
1. Students bring two pieces of posterboard to school, tape
three sides, work slides in.
2. Big roll of white paper, rolled off paper to make a 20" x 36"
paper envelope, with a flap, name on the flap.
3. I gave students extra credit if they took the first two weeks
and completed a homemade portfolio at home, some really nice
ones here, I would not accept bought portfolios.
4. For my advanced class, one year a great friend of the family
worked for a bakery. They donated the large cake boxes, we
added the handle, and they were kept in that.
Hopes this sparks some ideas.
