Butterfly Mobile + Do It Yourself

I made this butterfly mobile for my sweet, little niece Leona. It was a lot simpler than I thought. I forgot to take the photos at home, so my parent's bathroom did the trick.

what you need:
white cardstock
Martha Stewart butterfly punch
10" embroidery hoop
thin fishing line

what to do:
+tie a string across the embroidery hoop making an "X", use those strings the attach the butterfly strands
+punch out a bunch of butterflies, fold the wings, and poke a hole in the middle
+take a length of fishing line, tie a knot at the bottom, thread on your first butterfly, then tie a second knot about 2" above the butterfly and thread on the next one, repeat as necessary

♥ What do you think? Have you made a mobile?
