Saving memories wins ribbon


Whenever Emily Carbaugh, 15, heads off to college she won’t need to take a cumbersome scrap book along with family and friend photos.

The daughter of Julie and Keith, Plymouth, is a member of the Spring Valley 4-H Club and her clever idea for photos and mementos has won her a merit award at the Sheboygan County Fair.

“This is a little memory box,” said Carbaugh. “The overall size is 2½ inches by 4. It’s a hinged metal box where chocolates had come in at one time. I decorated it with paper and ribbon on the outer edge and inside are photos of my family and friends.”

Carbaugh used wallet size pictures or cut them out from a larger photo and fastened them to heavy weight card stock. She currently has nine pictures with captions but there is still room for more.

“The pictures were taken at random,” said Carbaugh. “They are of numerous people.”

The photos lock in her past year in one small box. She can take them to college and keep them preserved and handy to look at and share them with her new friends.

“The judge said it was original and that nobody had ever done this at the fair before,” Carbaugh related.

“I got the idea online and was going to do a mirror scrap book and this seemed like something that would last longer,” said Carbaugh.
