Butterfly Mobile



  • Fuse Creativity System® Starter Set
  • Medium Design Set 101060 – Butterfly
  • Micro-Tip Scissors (No. 5)
  • Embroidery hoop
  • Fabric
  • Ribbon
  • Thread
  • Wax paper



  1. Run four layers of wax paper through the Fuse using the Butterfly Design Set. I like to fold a piece in half twice to quickly get four layers. The wax paper layers fuse together without any adhesive. Create as many butterflies as you would like for your mobile.

  2. Tie two or three (or more) butterflies onto a cut of thread by tying the thread at their neck. Continue until you have seven or more strands of butterflies.
  3. Tie each string of butterflies evenly spaced along the inside ring of an embroidery hoop.

  4. Tie four ribbons evenly spaced along the hoop and tie into a knot for hanging.
  5. To finish off the mobile, tear or cut strips of fabric and wrap around the hoop. This will cover up all of your thread and ribbon knots as well as add a pop of gorgeous color.
