Butterfly Mobile

I have seen a couple different paper mobiles on Etsy--mobiles always fascinate me for some reason--cut from the pages of books.  I love the way this looks.  So, of course I had to try it for myself!  

I took a book I didn't care much for and the result is...well, it's not horrible, but it's not great.  I chose to make a butterfly mobile; I usually don't like butterfly motifs, but I sometimes do end up making butterflies in various pieces of art when I think it's appropriate...I thought this was appropriate! 

I think I know what I might do different next time.  And next time I post I'll tell you what I do different!  But anyway, it's kind of cute floating in the corner of my room.

PS--don't forget, it's not too late to enter the giveaway!  (See the last post).


  1. I think it is charming. The simplicity is what makes it so light ans airy!
