Just wondering what everyone does with all the ribbons and certificates they win. I was thinking of putting all the ones for a certain title in a shadow box or frame of some kind. Any other ideas??

I have all my title /rosettes in shadowboxes..I also took my obed title ribbons, and put them in a huge poster size frame with the pictures I had taken at each show..

I have 4 shadowbox full of them, agility/obedience ones. The flat ones I used again, poster size frames and glued them to a backing.

Some have made 'quilts' out of the rosettes..

The rosettes hang very nicely from the wood border above a closet and also on the valances of mini blinds. They make very nice closet and window treatments. You can also get styrofoam shapes at the craft store and make wreaths, hearts, and other shapes with pins or inserting the metal hanger on the back. The flats can be shadow-boxed, albumed, or pinned decoratively to cork board.

Thank you, you can get a lot of rosettes onto the styrofoam but yet have all "fanned out" to be readable and not all crushed up. I got a pet cat from a lady years ago who ran a rosette business and showed cats too. She had "wall art" in every room, I think. It was quite pretty.

My title certificates and obedience class certificates are in each dog's individual binder, along with all the dog's information.

My rosettes and ribbons I currently have four cork boards of different sizes set up in my living room.

I use a large binder too not only does it hold the ribbons but entry forms, pictures, and the arm band from that show. I also keep a small book in the binder with the show, judges name and what I thought of how the dog did and how the judge judged.
I have one judge that I've made a note beside not to show under again, and why.
