Step- by Step Tutorial by Lisa

Pin It

Good morning, sweet DeNami friends! 

Now that our release is behind us, we are getting back to our Friday photo tutorials! Oh boy, we have an AMAZING one to share with you today. This one comes from Lisa Petrella, and let me tell you, it will blow you away.

When I saw the new butterfly images from DeNami Design I instantly thought it would be fun to use them to create a paper mobile! For my mobile, I chose patterned papers and a color palette that suits the space for which the mobile was intended---in this case, my craft studio. However, you can change up the patterned papers and color palette for any style and any room in your home. For example, wouldn't one of these mobiles be FABULOUS in a nursery or in a kiddo's room? In the photo tutorial below I share step-by-step instructions for creating your own paper butterfly mobile. If you're not interested in creating a mobile, no need to complete the whole tutorial. You can simply skip steps 6 and 8 to create some beautiful embellishments for cards, tags, gift bags, etc. Enjoy!

I am still just baffled at how creative Lisa is. Wasn't this a stunning tutorial? I cannot wait to make my own paper mobile! If YOU create a mobile, we would LOVE to see it! Feel free to post your picture on the DeNami Facebook page or the DeNami Flickr group.

Tomorrow the lovely Rebeka will have a post with the Fabulous 3 Spotlight of the latest challenge- be sure to stop by for that.
Thank you all for visiting the DeNami blog today.Have a great weekend!
