What to do with old ribbons?

What do you guys do with your old show ribbons? I've probably got over 50 plain ribbons. And 2 champion ribbons.

I've heard of ribbon quilts, framing them, and using them for
I'd like to find a neater way of displaying them
What do you guys do?
Pictures would be awesome!

Mine are in an old suitcase in the basement. I have a few that I'm going to frame w/ a halter and a picture of my old Black Horse.

I have a few hanging in my room of my best times. The other 200+ are in a wooden chest all crinkled in my room. I should iron them....

Haha I only plan on keeping my 1st places and champions. But that's still at least 15 ribbons.

But I would like to do something cool with them.

The rest I will probably donate.

I had 3 boxes full, so for a few years there I declined ribbons & donated them back. I put the boxes up in the garage attic, so I need to fill up another box in my tackroom so I started collecting them again. I dunno, when I am old & crippled, I will look at them to recall the memories?

Oops, almost forgot about this idea, seen it before in Horse & Rider magazine. Quilts, pillows, etc made from show ribbons, very beautiful.
