Time for another CAS-ual Fridays Challenge after the two week challenge using numbers. This week we are sponsored by Ellen Hutson and are challenged to use buttons on our project. Boy, did I have a hard time thinking of something to make. I had in my head an idea of something hanging, and finally settled on a baby's mobile.
I bent some wire to make the base of the mobile, and then it was a bunch of trial and error to see where to hang the buttons so they balanced each other. For the sides that were too heavy, I rolled the loop holding the button inward until it balanced.
I used an exacto knife to cut a square through both layers of the card, except for the bottom edge which I scored so it could fold down.
I scored the flap again so it would anchor the card in the back.
For mailing, the flap folds up and the mobile lays flat. When it stands up it's fun to see the mobile twist into place, kinda like a real one!
Thanks for looking! Sure hope to see you in the gallery!
