No. No, I don't.
Today I have a delightful Ribbon Mobile tutorial for your crafting pleasure.
I am totally in love with Echo Park Paper right now and this assortment was perfect!
P.s. I recently bought a new glue gun...the kind that can be separated from the cord...I highly recommend these! I love being able to run around with my gun!
Ok...I started this project by spacing out the ribbon...ok...no, I didn't. That was a lie. I didn't plan out spacing before hand and I had to rip it all off and start over...hee hee...so...YOU will want to plan out the spacing of the ribbon for the amount of ribbon you want to use.
This assortment was so easy to work with because it was all the same length! I just cut it in half, then half again.
Hot glue one end of the ribbon to the hoop. At this time, I also attached the ribbon that will hang the mobile. I just used 2 lengths, criss crossed them and glued all four ends down.
After that I took one piece of ribbon and glued it all the way around the hoop to make it pretty and to cover the mechanics.
I busted out my trusty butterfly punch and started punchin'...then I glued them on randomly with hot glue.
I think I will do one of these with some birds and spiders for Halloween! Snowflakes for Christmas!
Hearts for Valentine's Day! I'm excited, are you?
oooohhhh...I have a Mickey Mouse punch!!! Hello Disneyland Mobile!!! Woot!
