Hi everyone! I am new to Craftster and I mostly crochet but love paper crafts too. These are some projects I made for my son's nursery. It's a wooland nursery theme.

I cute these animals and leaves out of scrapbook paper and put them in floating frames for his wall. I really like these Smiley


This is the owl mobile I made him from various pieces of scrapbook paper. It took me probably a total of 10 hours over a course of a month to get everything cut out and glued together and assemble the mobile. It was so much work, but my baby loves to lay in his crib and watch it, so very worth it.




The pattern for the mobile is not my own, I got it as this site: http://www.heynowwhoanow.com/

The mobile is so cute! It looks like it was worth all the effort.

Are the owls laminated? They appear to be, from the photo  Huh

Yes! The owls are laminated. I did that because I was worried the paper would start to curl around the edges after time, but not sure if it was really necessary. I'm really happy with my decision to make him a paper mobile. He won't get to grab and play with it but when he gets bigger I plan to either frame them or put them in a scrapbook.
