Cloud Baby Mobile {A Silhouette Project}

When we originally started the nursery planning with a boy in mind, I was all about vintage, classic, globe, airplane inspired things. The more I added to the nursery, including the board and batten and flashcards, the more I started the think the nursery was going to need just a little more whimsy. (You can see the entire nursery reveal here!)

So, after I found the perfect 'mobile' center piece, I pulled out my Silhouette SD to cut out some clouds from leftover scrap paper I had lying around.

I found the perfect cloud templates at the Silhouette store, 3 of them for only $.99!
 I sized them just right for what I was looking for, then sent them to the machine to cut. I knew I wanted double sided clouds, so I used the transform option on the Silhouette software and flipped my design horizontally as well so that I could cut it out on different paper. That way the clouds would fit perfectly and have a little something extra with two textures.
I took my freshly cut clouds, matched them up with their back pieces, and glued the two pieces together with a piece of fishing line threaded through the middle. 
After I was finished with three strands, two clouds each, I hung them from the ceiling using 3M hooks. 
 We added the perfect centerpiece, a great hot air balloon that we purchased online, and were finished. I am so excited to be all the way finished with this sweet room!
I'll be linking to some of these great parties this week.
Happy Wednesday!

Just found your blog & love it! Where online (if you don't mind me asking) did you get the hot air balloon - I LOVE it along with the cloud mobile!

Patrice, this mobile is perfect in every way. I can't think of any nursery that wouldn't be made better by it. Great job!
