Each time that Isabella goes to a dance competition and her team competes they win an individuall ribbon or pin and the team gets a trophy. At last weeks' copetition they had two dances for which they received a Platinum and a Gold and a Judges' Award which was called the Purely Precious Award. They didn't each get a ribbon for that last one, but you can see how the ribbons might add up. On the way home Bella was showing me her ribbons and I commented that she needed to find a place to put them all and she said Yeah. Later on she suggested I make something and an idea began to take shape. (Cue the music.)
Anyway, I started working on it the next day. I thought what she needed was something that could hold either a ribbon or a pin. Something that was easy and fun, something that could 'grow' with her and most important, something that wasn't too complicated for me to make. I had just brought home an old white board thing from work that was being thrown away because it was broken and I started with that. I cut it down to a good size and then topped it with cardboard.
