What to do with Medals, Ribbons, Trophies and Certificates

My seven and five year old girls have a lot of medal, ribbons, trophies and certificates. How show I display them? Should I put the certificates in a memory album? Please respond with any ideas. Thank you

I love Memory Boxes to hang on the wall with glass front. I have one with pictures,booties,graduation tassels wedding favors,which contain items from the most important facets of their lives. I also have one with momentos of my mother and father.They were parents of 6,needless to say ,didn"t have much just a lot of love to give. I found a quote which I have inside. It says "One hundred years from now it will not matter what kind of car I drove,what kind of house I lived in,how much I had in my bank account,nor what my clothes looked like. But the world may be a better place because I was important in the life of a child." It also has momentos of their 50th anniversary and dried roses from their funerals. These are two of the most cherished items I have.

Do you still receive old trophies for your artwork. I have some and do not want to put them in the land fill. Your reply will be appreciated.

While I ended up not using it (I ended up selling them at the flea market for a few bucks to someone who was going to use them in an art project), there is a neat site that last I knew takes old trophies and either recycles or fixes and works with non profits who need them. The link is www.awardsmall.com/Trophy-Recycling_ep_46.html

When I sold mine, I learned that there are a lot of artists who use these as part of metal assemblage projects...so if your town has an artist guild they may be able to tell you who is looking for these for their projects.

My mother did the following to display my medals, ribbons and certificates. She took a piece of MDF and stapled batting to one side. Then she took fabric and stretched it over the batting and flipped it over and held it tight while using a staple gun to secure it to the back. She then flipped it over to the front and criss-crossed ribbons and used upholstery tacks to secure them and stapled the ends to the back. She slid my certificates in between the ribbons and tacked my ribbons on she nailed in my medals. Hope this helps you.
