Framing Ideas For Disney Pins

Hello everyone!
I need a few ideas on how to frame these hat/lapel pins from Disney. Since I am new to framing, I want to keep it simple. My wife collected these pins when we went to Disney in 2000. My wife wants to able to, once in a while, remove them from the box. So I am guessing the front or back of the box should open. She also wants to be able to hang the frame on a wall.
Here are the pins:

Thanks in advance,
Troy, just throw them in any old Mickey Mouse frame... :D

Around DL [Disney Land] they were the Flair [pins] on suspenders.

So an easy way to do it is a photo of your wife, with suspenders and ears.. then make a slice in the photo where the top of the suspenders go over her shoulders, slide the end through of some real suspenders, and tack down. Then put the flair on the suspenders... and when she wants to wear, open the front, take the pin off the suspenders, and wear. The Suspenders will stay elastic for Minny years. 2" Rainbows are the suspenders of choice at DL.

So now did not only the plastic surgery go wrong and confuse everyone as to who you are Baer but now your new Avatar makes is seem like you have had a sex change.
Come on back, be that beard wearing, hawaiian shirt/crocs guy again we all learned to love. Come on pal you can do it, just push the right button on your profile page! :rolleyes:
Bear, you look suprisingly familiar..... hmmmn!
OMG, you fooled me, I didn't even look at the name, thought it was Steph! Or Dani!

Baer? A sex change??? Oh my. Where's Emmibubba?

p.s. Baer, great idea about the s'penders! That is, if you really ARE Baer! C'mon, PROVE IT!! Over on the "Is it just me?" thread
Hi Troy,
Take a look at the display boxes on my website. These were originally produced for my wifes collection of antique brooches.
They are easy to make and adapt.
If you need more details email me.
I like your suggestion, I'll have to find a rainbow suspender but instead of a picture of my wife, I'll try to cut a mat shapped liked Mikey's head.

I saw you display cases, they gave me good ideas on how to make the display case. I will also use the velcro to mount the pins, that way they can easily be detached.
this is a little off topic - but a few years ago a biker guy came in with his collection of disney pins. they were all nude little tinkerbells posing seductively on Harleys.

I had no idea that Disney would license something like that! They were adorable though - and let me tell you - Tink sure is a "perky" little thing!!! LOL!!

oh yeah - I remember reading that. However, those pins actually had the disney copyright stamp embossed in the backs of them. they were ligit!
Ah yes, Tink and the 80s... who coulda thunk.

Jeez people.. If I had a sex change or shaved my beard and head to expose my tribal tats... what would you be able to tell I'm still me? :eek:

how about:

Suspenders.... and Minny..... jeeeeesh
