dry mounting drawings

What's the best--and least expensive--surface on which to dry mount drawings
for display? I don't have mat boards available and I'm trying to get my
students' artwork ready for an exhibit in mid-October.

I've put some (as sort of a temporary thing) on construction paper (using a
glue stick which has a removable glue--sort of like a post-it note), but
some really deserve something a little more permanent and substantial.

The drawing paper I'm using is a 60 lb. white sulphite (really thinner than
I'd prefer...) and I'm using a matt acrylic fixative on them, first.

I've talked, briefly, with a frame company about getting donations of mats
and mat board, but haven't time to really pursue this, yet.

At any rate, I'll need something light weight that can either be attached to
a wall (with thumbtacks...tacky, I know) OR that can have some sort of
hanger attached to the back.

Thanks for your help--
