Default finishing small parts

I was pre-painting some trim for one of our bedrooms. Some typical baseboard size and a bit of small stuff (less than 1 inch on the sides). I have always disliked picking the piece up to make sure I paint the edges good then setting it back down. It either sticks to the sawhorse or what ever I am using or I manage to smear the paint.
I have tried small blocks under pieces, but if the piece is small then the block becomes ridiculously small and just become a hinderance. I though of painters triangles, would work but I don't have any and would need a whole big mess of them.
I found a solution that worked very well and I thought would be worth sharing. Carpet tack strips! All those little tacks work nicely to hold the trim up so I don't have to mess with it or smear it.

I thought those were only good for accidentally stepping on or stabbing yourself with.

Good tip.
