Over the years I have gotten quiet a few ribbons and I just don't know what to do with them. I want to do something cool with them but I don't know what. What do you guys do with your ribbons. (pictures would be great)
Yesterday my husband told me jokingly that I wasn't allowed to pick up any ribbons that weren't a first or champion otherwise we'd run out of room in the house! I tend to throw them in a pile in the attic. I doubt i'll ever do anything cool with them but I somehow can't seem to throw them away or not pick them up! :) i've seen some websites with some really cool things you can make out of them: quilts (my fav), pillows, stuffed horses, etc.
When my old show horse retired from the ring, I took all her ribbons and trophys (including two saddles she won) and set them up as a display, put her behind all the stuff she won, and photographed her there.
I kept the picture.
All the ribbons and trophies I tossed (we were moving). I sold the saddles.
I still have the picture. My old show horse is gone now (she died) but I'll have that photo and the memories forever.
There are also folks who use show ribbons to make quilts, they are very nice as well.
