Handmade Memento Honoring George Washington

Index card-sized handmade memento honoring George Washington.  It has a length of red, white and blue ribbon woven through the top and an illustration of Washington pasted on.  Because the handwriting appears to be that of an adult, I think it's more likely that this was designed for a celebration honoring Washington's birthday rather than as a school project.

The handwriting: "To be prepared for war is one of the most effectual means of preserving peace."

There's a mar at bottom right.  Nothing on reverse except for the ribbon woven through from front.  Possibly made in Maine.

If you've run across a memento similar to this,  I'd appreciate hearing from you.  Thanks for stopping by!
