What do you do with your RIBBONS?

So, my ribbons from my first season of showing are just piled all over my desk!

Anyone have any creative things to do with horse show ribbons?

I've heard of sewing them into a quilt/blanket, but that is way too intense for me! I'm not that crafty!

I took a ribbon and like tacked it on my upper part of my wall right below the ceiling to it (I let the ribbon hang down some in between tacks, but not much. Just so it looked kind of draped, not straight across. (I put tacks every few feet) Then I just hung my ribbons over the ribbon. They're out of the way, and easy to see.

I sewed some of my ribbons into a blanket. Most of them are just in a bag somewhere in my bedroom. One day in the very distant future i want to make a blanket out of blue ones, but i don't win them very often.

I made an easy strip to attach mine, then hang along my trailer when taking pics. Not overly creative, but good for photo ops. When not on the strip, along the wall.. Again, not exciting, but I havent come across anything too thrilling to do with them, LOL, and I dont want to destroy them either as it was earned.

I'm interested too. I'm going away to college and thinking of making a pillow made, but if anyone has a better idea I'd like to know as well.

I usually post mine on the fridge. I also have this CD rack thingy that my desk came with (its like a shelf) & I hang the ribbons on the CD rack slides. It looks cool! Not very creative, but hey- I like looking at them when I'm at my computer!

The ribbons that I won that mean alot to me I have hanging in my room, the others are in a box somewhere at my moms. I have quite a few of them and trophies, but the trophies I donate to the local 4-h club and they re-use them for awards and stuff.

I also have a few ribbons hanging in my tack room back at the barn.

It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.
