I'm in the process of Spring Cleaning the house and throughout our Disney years we have accumulated a total of about 50 buttons, the regular Happy B-Day- First Time- Just Married- Family Gathering, a whole bunch from Conservation Station and Disney's Conservation Fund, Party for the Planet 10 year AK, 25th Epcot Anniv, etc... I want to do something with them other than have them in a drawer.
So does anyone have any ideas, also I have a couple of Dream FastPass from AK, MGM, DHS and MK and a Who Wants To Be A Millionaire lanyard with hanging Plastic Tag thing.
Thanks In Advance

You could always do what my mother has done with all of her pins... instead of putting them on a motorized wheelchair place them on a thick piece of material and hang it up somewhere in your house. That way you can display them and you can look at them whenever you like. :P

My mom unfortunately has lost pins while having them covering her scooter (that's even with them being superglued in place). You've seen her collection it is very heavy and the vibration tends to pull on the material or vibrate them off the basket. :lol:

Kim this is the same thing I was thinking, maybe a piece of felt fabric, I'll get inspired and do a design or something and then hang it somewhere. We have kept all those badges and now I can't just throw them out.
I also have a huge book with all the certificates that you get, you know, like the magical moments from Sids , Honorary family of the day from AK, jump roping before the parade at MK, decorating a cookie from Main street, etc, it's about 60 pages of all of them...the kids and I go thru them every once in a while and it's really cool to remember all those moments.
Also I have around 20 drawings from the Animation Academy, and I have not gotten better at drawing Mickey after all those :lol:

Yeah, you and your kids practically live there (lucky you!!) :lol:. I have about 10 to 15 drawings but none of those certificates (my drawings come out pretty good depending on what character it is).
I also have a drawer full of my pins that I have no real place for right now. Where I live isn't really that big so there's no place right now to do what you're thinking.

Just a thought, but a friend of mine started decorating her garage w/all of her kids' school work. She has the work set up as a progression through the years starting on the far left of her garage. Assuming you have a garage, put up the Disney stuff early things on the far left & progress through the garage. Every time you drive in your garage, there are your memories. Hey, I might do this w/my kids Disney cra..or...a...treasures :lol: -Good Luck!

I live in MN, so she put laminate on some items to protect them from the weather, but I have to admit, it looks fairly cool.

This is a great idea, the only problem is that my husband has sole custody of the garage :P meaning that all his tools, the kids bikes, beach stuff, etc is what decorates it. But I do like the idea. Maybe I'll hang them in the kids rooms.

I had a bunch of buttons that i wanted to keep and i bought a lamp specifically made for collection like that. I put all the buttons in the lamp and it looks really cool! Of course, you can't see every single button, but it is a great way to store them and still be able to enjoy them.. I seem to recall I found the lamp at the Christmas Tree Shops, but I'm sure they sell them other places, too.

Hvae fun finding a good way to display them!

You could line a picture frame with all of the pins, if you don't mind using glue to attach them. I have a frame lined with bottle caps and it is actually pretty cute. And in the frame you could put some Disney pictures or flat souvenirs you have around.

I have more than enough buttons to cover a few lamps :) thanks for another great idea, my husband will not be happy when he sees Disney displayed in every direction he looks.

If this helps yulilin, this is what I did with mine.

I purchased a small corkboard and covered the cork with Mickey fabric (spray adhesive works the best). The cork gave me something to push the pin into and hold it without using glue. It also makes it portable if I decide to put it in a different location. I even have my regular pins on it as well. The small ones help take up the space around the big ones.

Have fun!!!! :)

For the smaller items (like pins & ticket stubs) I would use a few shadow box frames. Cut some thin cork or medium cardboard (for stiffness) a bit smaller than the inside of the frame as the mounting base, add some optional padding & cover with fabric. For small ticket stubs, use a small straight pin to mount. Push the pins through mounting surface and place it in the shadow box frame. No dusting and no glueing so the pins can be rearraged anytime you want. To save some space for larger prints or drawings, I would buy some large poster frames and use several in each frame to create collages that could be hung anywhere.

This is sort of what I did for our pins, but I went even cheaper. I just used the cardboard backing that came with the shadowbox and punched the pins through it, and then shadowboxed. Our Disney bathroom (should it ever get finished) is going to be black and white, and since the frame of the shadowbox was black and the cardboard is white it worked perfectly.
