Like some of my other pieces this mobile came about by accident. I was busy folding paper flowers for kusudama balls to take with me to a craft fair. My 2 year old daughter came up to me and asked to have some of the flowers I was making. To placate her I told her I would make her some when I had finished my last ball. When I went to make her the flowers, I chose to make big ones so she could hold onto them more easily. But as I was folding them I started thinking that she would just end up destroying the flowers being that she is only 2. So I started to think of different ways she could have them but not destroy them. Then if occurred to me that I had a mobile kit I still had not used. So after I made enough flowers I clipped them into the mobile. I put up hook in her room and hung it up and we both loved it!! She gets to look at it every night and enjoy it. So I thought more little girls might like to have some beautiful flowers for their rooms too!
This mobile is made of flowers in beautiful black and white patterns. A combination of black and white scrapbooking paper was used to make the flowers. This mobile also has flowers in different sizes for added interest. Each flower is made of 5 individual sheets of paper folded into a petal. The 5 petals are then glued together to make the flower. I also add a silver sequin the middle of each flower for little pop of shine. Once all 10 flowers are made white ribbon is glued to the top to attach the flowers to the mobile. A total of 50 sheets of paper are used to make the flowers. Each flower takes about 15 minutes to fold and put together.
The mobile has an opening at the top that can be used to hang from a hook in the ceiling. It can be hung over a crib, a changing table in front of the window or anywhere you would like to add some fun and whimsy. It can also be attached to a crib arm just let me know at purchase and I will modify the mobile to be used on a crib arm.
Total length of mobile is approx. 28" long and total width of the mobile is approx. 17". Metal mobile kit is 22"x16". Individual flowers range from approx. 4 1/2" long and 5" wide to 3" long and 3 1/2" wide.
For indoor use only. This is not a toy. Please keep out of reach of children.
This mobile and all the items in my shop come from a smoke free home and studio.
***There will be some variation in the flower paper patterns used and flower placement on each mobile because the pieces are handmade and placed, so please expect some variation from the picture.****

Yes, I can customize pretty much anything in my shop. I can make custom color schemes for any mobile, ornament, boutonniere or bouquet. I can also customize frames, gift sets and mirrors.
All origami items are made with paper and can not be cleaned with any cleaner or damp cloths. I recommend dusting with a feather duster or Swiffer type duster at least once a month. I also recommend using canned air to clean dust out from inside the folds of the origami pieces. Frames and mirrors may be cleaned using a damp cloth.
