A Ribbon Attendance Incentive (Wall Hanging) Tutorial

I wanted to make a simple Attendance Incentive for my Sunday School Class that would only use materials that I already had at home.
I always have coloured card of different sizes so out came a piece of A3
White card was used to print out a header
I used scraps of ribbon to make strips to hang from the header card to represent the weeks for attendance - I needed 15 for the period of time I wanted to cover but any number of weeks up to 15 would fit in to the A3 card provided the ribbon is narrow like mine.
The first week the kids were going to have butterflies (with their names) to clip unto the ribbons and then different shapes each week but it could be simpler to just always have the same shape
Every week I would need tiny pegs (but so cheap on ebay) and enough shapes for the class
Here is the finished product.
