You can do your mockup & save add'l ribbon and glue. Later when you've got it figured out (but aren't a speed demon yet) this set up is great as you glue, undo a pin, glue, etc.
This is a great tip I've been using regular cardboard for ages (just cut up from packages we receive) but I like the idea of using foam board.
