How do I repurpose horse show award ribbons?

Answered

Been carrying around boxes of them for decades, hate to throw them away and would like to honor them in some way. I'm not looking for more "stuff" so I am hoping to find practical and useful things I can create with them, not decorative like wall hangings or putting them in a display case like I've seen often. Picture on the right shows a typical intact award ribbon, left side of the ruler shows the elements deconstructed. Multiple colors, varying sizes on the flat ribbons usually 6-10" long. Each award has a middle ribbon with metallic writing and two or more side ribbons that are solid colors. I have at least 200 of them, plenty of material to create many things, and I'm able to sew at a beginner level.
