Welcome to the March 2014 Damask Divas blog hop featuring the new CTMH paper pack, Lollydoodle. Such a fun and bright collection of papers. If you got here from Ronnie’s blog, you are in the right place. You can always start at the Damask Divas blog site if you get lost or want to start at the beginning.
I created a fun Spring mobile using the Lollydoodle paper pack. I used the CTMH Artiste cartridge to cut the rosettes. I made two of each pattern so I could turn one or the other side out. So easy – just cut two for each rosette, glue the two strips together, fold on score lines, fold as directed in the Artiste booklet and glue a circle or flower on the center of both sides to hold it all together. I cut small flowers out of a scrap of Lollydoodle paper to hold the center of the rosettes. I then tied them on a cute little bird cage with ribbon I had on hand. You could use fishing line instead. I made a double sided paper bird from the Artiste cartridge so I would have a birdie in my little cage. Cute! I put the mobile on a hook in the ceiling of my shop and took a photo. With the door open the mobile moves in the slight breeze. I am sure I will be making more of these. I have a stash of the little bird cages.

I want this at my house please! Cydney this is just delightful!
Thanks Traci! It was fun to make.
Oh my goodness, how beautiful! What a wonderful idea for that birdhouse! Thanks for the inspiration, Cydney! 🙂
Thanks, Amie. I was looking for something to attach rosettes to and found the birdhouses at Michaels. I am ready for Spring!
What a fun display to have in your home! Love it!
spring has definitely sprung at your house…. this would be fun in a split entry much like a chandelier hanging over the stairs… how you’d get it up on the ceiling to hang it? i have no idea… but I see it hanging there 🙂 very cool.
Thanks! I stood on a ladder to put it on a hook that was already there for hanging a lamp. :^)
These look so cool. 🙂
