Paper Owl Mobile

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

I'm still here. I've just been super busy with my design job and my mom job and my baby cooking job. I have about 3 weeks left until my baby's due date and I'm still trying to get the nursery together. I have most of the components I just need to get it all together. Since I've got nurseries on my mind I thought I would share the mobile I made for my son's nursery a while back. You know, craft paper rocks and you can do so much with it, but I'm sure you know that already. I'm just now discovering it.

Anyway, I saw some cute owl tags somewhere online that inspired me to make this mobile. (I would give props, but I have no idea where I found it.) I just bought cute craft paper and drew out the pieces for the owls, cut them out and then glued them with rubber cement. I happen to own a hole puncher so I used that to make a nice hole in their head and then used ribbon to attach it to a rod I had. I thought it turned out pretty darn cute for just using paper!

That is incredibly cute. I *love* owls. Sadly, my daughter is terrified of them. So I can't decorate with them. Sigh.
