Making a Butterfly Mobile

With CutCardStock’s Design Team

Today I am posting a tutorial on the CutCardStock blog for this Butterfly Mobile I made using three different colors of green card stock.

I cut all the butterflies and vellum centers on a Cricut Maker. Many companies I work with provide materials for me to use in tutorials.


  • Embroidery hoop – center loop
  • fishing line
  • Cricut
  • Cardstock
  • Vellum
  • Tacky Glue
  • scissors
  • binder clips
  • pencil
  • craft wire – gold
  • super glue

I used three different greens for the butterflies from CutCardStock (affiliate links). Pop-Tone Card Stock in Spearmint, Green Curry, and Dark Teal. And the insides are Cover Weight Vellum.

The image above shows how the binder clips were used to hold the fishing line in place before being stuck in place with super glue. You can also see how I wound and looped the craft wire at the top for hanging.
