Advice on how to organise a "paper" portfolio

Hi folk! i would like to hear from your experience. I'd like to refresh my "paper" portfolio which is a big folder containing photos (in sheet protectors) of some of my works as a prop maker and scenic painter. Soon i'll be back on the job market! so i'd like to add some material i can show when (hopefully) i'll get a job interview. I have a digital portfolio as well: This helps to give a general idea of my work when sending a digital application. So, I wonder, how do you prefer to organise your works? Do you only show photos of the final product or of the making process also? (i go for the second option). Do you organise the visual references by show? (i do that) by skills (say: prop skills, painting, sketches, sculpture, etc.)? or by period? (year, working place and so on), is there a limit to the amount of stuff you put in it? It'd be interesting to hear other people's experience we can all share. Thanks!

Hei Robyn, thanks a lot for your advice. I read your articles, they are very interesting! i'll think about how to improve my portfolio. I agree with you on the slide show for my digital portfolio. It'll be more user friendly. I have to work on it but it takes sometime with Wordpress and all the plug ins. Thanks!
