Ok, so I was the nerdy kid who always did stuff for 4-H and won ribbons for it (all right.  i know what you're thinking.  i know, everyone won ribbons.)  and i have a bunch of them lying around and i would like to give them new life as something useful... and suggestions?

Thanks, y'all are swell.

maybe you could use a cold laminate or contact paper to cover them in sheets so you can sew them together into a messenger bag or something like they do with the magizine pages... does that make sense?

ooh.  How about flowers and making them into pins themselves.  you could cut out flower shapes and glue a couple layers together.  Or you could thread one side so it gets all buched up and put a couple of those together to make a flower.

Another 4-H kid here. Smiley My mom says she's seen quilts made with 4-H ribbons, but I haven't attempted it yet. I'll wait till she gets bored one day, and she does it for me. Smiley

nifty ideas!  i really like the thought of making them (at least the flat ones) into a messenger bag.  i could decorate it with flowers.   Smiley  does anyone know someplace that does cold laminating?  i don't have much luck with contact paper.

 The Kinko's here is where I go to get things cold laminated. Most bigger copy shops should have the ability, I think.

Well on TV I saw one of these; someone had got a whole bunch of award ribbons that were all the same lengths and sewn them all together this way....         ____________________________
After that, the big "thing" that was made was put over a couch, so that it was across the backrest thing. You could make a bigger one, and make it into a quilt, as someone mentioned. There is a lot you could do with it.

*Later edited- the first one appears to be in a bad mood, it refuses to get in line with the other ones. Just imagine it is...
