Butterfly mobile

I was very inspired when I saw my friend Carin's entry on the Bo Bunny blog where she made a butterfly mobile.  It turned out so beautifully, I decided to make one for my niece for her second birthday. 

I pretty much followed Carin's instructions to the letter, except I used the K and Co Mira range.  What I love about these papers is that the colours are bright and quite intense - royal blues, fresh greens, reds, oranges and pinks - so pretty and feminine. 

Another key point of difference was that I ran a string of butterflies from the middle of the mobile, by  running two interconnecting fishing lines and knotting them together.  I used my Sizzix Bigz Flower Daisy Die

Unfortunately, I found it vey difficult to get good photos and ran out of time, as my Mum had to pack this away in a suitcase for her return today to Australia.  


  1. Beautiful gift and easily adaptable if you wanted something different to butterflies, for boys or example xx

  2. Awww that is so beautiful - I love it.

  3. It looks fab Ali, I love the bright colours you have used. I know you said that you were making one a while ago but it is nice to see the finished item :)
