I just hosted my first 'Mommy & Me' class and we made some cute little SnowMobiles. I totally couldn't resist the pun :)

I created the top in MDS using the Festive Flurry Digital kit. I love that with these images you can stretch them to be as big as you want without any distortion. It made for an awesome top to hang the strings down from. I actually printed this out twice and glued them together back to back for a little added stability.

For the dangles I used the retired sizzlit snowflake strip. To attach the snowflakes to the strings I used glue dots, and then covered up the otherside of the dot with a small punched circle. On some of the snowflakes I also added a punched circle to the front to give it a little extra pizzaz. I especially liked using the silver glimmer paper to add a little pop to the center.

To attach the strings to the top of the mobile I just punched a small hole and ran a bit of the string through. Then we attached it with a glue dot on the top side (and covered the extra glue with another punched circle). Since the strings are fairly light this was enough to hold it in place.

The one other tip I have for making this is to be sure to spread out your large and small shapes in order to make sure the mobile hangs fairly level. And if it doesn't, just go ahead and add more spots to the center of the snowflakes on the side that isn't heavy enough- it doesn't take to much to get it to level out and that is a good spot to 'hide' the extra weight.

Hope you enjoyed our project. Flutter by again soon!
