"The description of the product didn't really explain the 'make-up' of the material. I purchased it for an outdoor party, thinking it was more stable than the rubbery-plastic that it was made of......... that being said...... We built a frame and stood the whole thing up on the frame. It was tedious to cut out and stick all the plastic figures on the back drop. We ended up purchasing a spray adhesive which worked wonderfully!! The backdrop was a huge success at our party - everyone loved it!!!! Although, for us, it turned out to be quite a project!!"
