Feature You Friday: Paper Mobile by Carly

Good morning, CraftyStealers!

Today we have a little something fun for you! We are featuring your fellow CraftyStealer Natasha's paper mobile. 
I'm Carly Lucier from Windsor, ON and I'm 20 years old. I have always enjoyed crafting, but my passion started about two years ago when I was looking up origami crane instructions and instead found these origami star-ball instructions!  I started out selling just the balls at Made In Windsor Crafters Markets. A few people suggested that I use the star-balls to make mobiles, so I did!
For this project, Carly used her American Crafts Valentine's ribbon CraftySteal.
Cute, right?  I'm thinking this project has so many possibilities beyond a baby's room decoration!  Depending on the paper, it could be a solar system or sports balls for bigger boys, transformed into flowers or butterflies for a little girl, or a great holiday decoration for any season - you could even make a very cool Christmas tree covered in handmade origami ornaments!  If you'd like to see more or purchase one of Carly's origami creations, go check out her Origami Mobiles Facebook Page.  Thanks again for sharing, Carly!

Have any projects you'd like to share? Have an Etsy or Ebay business you want everyone to know about? Or maybe a crop or cause you'd like to get the word out about? Send in your submissions to the StitchSteals blog for consideration for future Feature You Fridays.  We'd love to share your talents with all of your fellow CraftyStealers!

Have a fabulous start to your weekend. Happy Crafting!
