This is probably the least practical project I've ever done... but I think it's the cutest. Not every project we work on has to solve a problem, sometimes they just have to be fun!
I got an email from Home Made Simple with a cute little butterfly mobile project. All you need is some scrapbook paper or cardstock, or even wrapping paper and some scissors and glue. I printed out the instructions (which are downloadable to a pdf so you can save it, love that!) and went to work. I picked a few of the shapes to work with and cut, cut, cut. I did 8 of each shape and I can tell you that 6 or even 4 would have been plenty... But, what can I say? I'm an over-achiever.
They turned out really cute! And they flutter! If I had a daughter (and I don't because I'm destined to live in a house with only testosterone) this would be adorable in her room. Go download the instructions here and get cutting!
