Get ready for lots of pictures! As always, if you have any questions please leave them in the comments. Just a few notes as we go. I used the Silhouette machine that cut all the butterflies out for me...so easy that way. The Pottery Barn Kids butterfly mobile has pink leaves draped on it. You can find something similar in SugarpinkBoutique: found here.
The metal hoop I used is a Darice Brass Metal Ring (12"): link here.
The paper piercer is from Making Memories: link here.
Cut out about 12 strands from your thread - about 2 1/2 feet long. Longer or shorter depending on how you would like you mobile to look. You can also make more or less strands of butterflies depending on how "full" you want your mobile to be.
