I started this quest with an interest in making an origami mobile for my baby’s room, but … that’s just not gonna happen. So for you artsy craftsy types…. here’s some inspiration:
This Origami mobile is beautiful. I’d say it’s THE DON of origami mobiles, and trust me… I’ve googled long and hard.
The one pictured above is a mix of shapes and animals, from fish to cranes to pointy balls, and it was the first to inspire me.
Another nice one is the butterfly punchout one.
More pictures and instructions available on the original blog it’s from here.
The butterfly punchout is available at giant art stores (Michael’s in Canada) or on Amazon here. I found the size a bit smaller than I would have liked (so check it to make sure it suits you). You can also get the non-monarch butterfly which has no holes and would look more like this (below):
Full tutorial for this one is available here (by its creator Carina Gardner)
Good luck! Oh, and if all else fails I’m pretty sure Pottery Barn has one. (+ More can be found on this board)
