Default Attaching combs to bow cards!

I am getting ready for my first show and I am stuck on how to display hair combs onto cards. I won't have alot of table space and I am trying to get everything up on cards to hang on grid walls--that I have plenty of.
Any Ideas how to get the hair combs onto cards? I tried cutting little holes and poking one comb from each side through but that really looks dumb on the backside and I am afraid it will permanently mis-shape the haircomb. I thought about sewing them on with just a couple of threads on each side but what if someone wants to try one on, then I will have to un-do it and have a mess. I have attached 3 pictures to give you an idea of what I need HELP!!
I just can't see it.

can you poke little holes through the card, and use those little twisty ties (or floral wire) ???

All of my tutorials are now available through my etsy store.

Clear rubber bands would also work. Those tiny ones that they use for hair would be perfect. Just poke two holes in the card (however far apart), loop the rubber band over the comb spoke on the left, through the hole and across the back of the card, out the second hole, and around the other spoke.

Does that make sense?

I'll let you sleep with my husband before I give you my supplier information, so don't ask.

Perfect ideas, (just imagine the light bulb went on) I am going to try both the rubberbands and twist ties! I like the rubberband idea! I knew this group could help.
Thanks so much!
