Craftin's Hard Y'all!

Thank god for Basic Grey chipboard files... without them this project would not have been possible. It took three days... and some hand cramps... and to be honest, I don't know why I decided to make it. Just for "fun" I guess. But it wasn't very fun. It was boring and took way too long. I would call it a labor of love... but that would mean I loved the process right???

Anywhoo... here it is in all it's glory. The sunshine mobile....

Chipboard by Stampin' Up' (and me)... Paper by Daisy D's, Love Elsie, Fancy Pants and K&Company. Ribbon and twine by Martha Stewart Crafts. Vintage Buttons.

I stitched the faces on to the paper by hand before I affixed it to the chipboard.

Each chipboard piece was hand sanded and sponged with white craft ink.

The buttons were stitched prior to affixing them to the chipboard with Scotch Quick Dry adhesive. The holes were created with a crop-a-dile and secured with eyelets.
