Scrap Happy Place Value Banner

So since I am going to be teaching thirdsters this year I'm getting a little higher in the place value realm.  I am seriously obsessed with banners right now so I decided to create a place value banner for my babies.  Easy peasy!   I just used scrapbook paper cut into triangles.  I printed out the wording in a cute font and drew a border around it. Cut them out and glued them to the triangles.   Then I stapled (I was out of double sided tape) the cute ribbon to the top.  You can't even see the staples so it worked out great.  Plus it folds up very easily.  My next goal is to create a "Gallon Man" out of scrapbook paper.  Here is a look at my newest banner!  Love it!  Oh the things that make this teacher happy!

I love your banner!!! I am working on a place value unit with a safari theme and I think I might borrow your banner idea(if I may). Come visit my blog at http://3rdgradesahoot.blogspot.com and maybe I can return the favor :)

I love this idea! This will be my first year teaching third (been in second for 10 years). About how big did you make your triangles? Did you trace anything to make them uniform? I'm making these tomorrow! Thanks for the great idea!
