The cat and the Hat

I cut up a book (I really did)
All because my friend is having a kid.

The nursery is adorned with Dr. Suess of all things
So naturally I had something crafty to bring!

I found this here "mobile" from a store called Ikea
and Shanon's banner inspiration gave me an idea.

I cropped and I cut favorite pictures from a book,
And layered with cardstock to give it the right look!

The shower's tomorrow I can't wait till she sees.
The gift that I brought her handmade by ME!

You can't tell from the photo because I had to stick it against the wall to get a better shot, but it spins and things are two sided. The turquoise ribbon looks 3-d swirly cause of how I wrapped it around the clear wire hangers.

Supplies used: hanging mobile photo frame from I
KEA (got at a garage sale for FREE. )Various Dr. Suess books (bought at the thrift) , Assorted cardstock, Fiskars trimmer and finger tip craft knife. Ribbon.

Total cost for project..$2 (Oh and see the other photo for how it's being presented....also got for FREE (same sale...SWEET)
