DIY: Baby Mobile
One of the first project I did when I bought my Big Shot was a Baby Mobile for my lil handsome M, I had been drooling over the net seeing all those beautiful hand made baby mobile and I wanted to try it out. So here's my take on that, sit back and enjoy :)!
Nothing expensive even if you dont have any cutter or punch that can cut out the shapes you need, the old school method never fails in anything, its just a longer route to achieve what you need.
Embroidery hoop, you just need the inner ring of it (I used in my first baby Mobile, my grandma's old wooden frame ^__^, yes i made quiet a few after that the mobile caught on me!!), you can find nice small sturdy hoops at Daiso for 6 DHs.

Once I couldn't find an embroidery ring so got a foam ring instead, it looked fine but not as nice when it was on the hoop.
I ran my cut outs on my sewing machine to make long strips according how my colors needed to come up and I have my strips ready to be assembled to the ring in few minutes.
Wrap the ribbon around the ring/hoop, and four strips of ribbon tied them altogether on one of my old bangle which I used as a hook.
Here are the other few I created in different color combination,
