Although I have enjoyed displaying them that way I have been on the look out for another idea for storing (and displaying) them. I had seen a jar idea various places on the internet and finally decided to give it a try.
I bought the jar at TJ Maxx for 12.99 and that was my only expense (although I'd hate to add up what it cost to win the ribbons). I made sure to get a jar with a lid to keep the dust out. It was super easy to do and was a quick project. Since I mainly did combined tests and events with Roz, where you only got 1 ribbon for 2 or 3 rides, he didn't really have that many ribbons. If he had more I think I would have probably picked out only the blues or maybe just the ones that meant a lot to me. As it was, they were all able to go in my jar. A week later they have "settled" a bit. I think I may add some tissue paper to the center of the jar to keep the ribbons closer to the edge. Overall I'm really happy with how it turned out.
What is your favorite way to keep your ribbons?
