Welcome to It's A Joy 2 Scrap's April Fool's Day Blog Hop! I hope everyone is having a fantastic Friday! If you came here from Elaine , you are in the right place. However, if you happened upon my blog, please head over to It's A Joy 2 Scrap's blog you don't miss any of the fun.
For this hop, we were asked to create a project that "tricks the eye," or to make a spring project is nothing came to mind. I couldn't think of anything tricky so I made a spring mobile.
I used the April Showers cricut cartridge to cut the words Welcome Spring.
I used the Martha Steward butterfly punch and made 16 butterflies. I used the one inch xyron to add adhesive to 8 of the butterflies.
I used six pound fishing line and placed it between two of the butterflies (one with adhesive, one without).
I attached the ends of the fishing line to the Welcome Spring header and added another piece of line to use to hang the mobile. I hung it in my room. Right now the breeze comes from the heater vent, but soon will come from the open window. When I looked at it hanging I realized I did make a tricky project since the fishing line is nearly invisible and the butterflies appear to be flying.
Next in line is Darlene.
