Ideas for Displaying a Political Button Collection in Non-Cheesy Way?

Good Questions

Q: My fiance and I have an extensive collection of political campaign buttons. Because they are all personal — given to us by family or from campaigns that we worked on or supported (we don't "antique" for buttons or anything) — we really want to make them a part of our living space without being too cheesy or "collection-y".

We share an 800 square foot one bedroom plus den in DC and don't want the apartment to feel like a political junkie's home. We are trying to think of a cool way to display them that is not just another framed thing on the wall (and that would allow us some room for growth in the collection). Any ideas?
