Dreamland Mobile

Project Description: How to create a Dreamland Mobile, using Grafix Vellum. DIY unique paper creations to add extra charm to a baby nursery or use as baby shower decor.

Designed by: Maritza Garcia

Difficulty: Easy


  • Grafix Vellum Assortment Pad
  • Templates or a Cutting Machine
  • Wrinkle Free Glue Stick
  • Clear Fishing Line
  • Free Tree Twig or Craft Wood Dowel Rod
  • Washi Tape
  • Molding Mat
  • Ball Tool

Steps to Make This:

  1. Start by tracing images of a moon, stars, and clouds onto Grafix Vellum or cut images using a cutting machine. You will need 6 cloud shapes to make one 2D cloud, 3-star shapes to create one 2D star and one crescent moon.
  2. Once you have all your images cut out, start by placing 6 cloud pieces in front of you. Next, make a fold down the center of every cloud piece.
  3. Now take one folded cloud piece and gently apply a light layer of wrinkle-free glue to one side of your folded cloud piece.
  4. Next, pick up another folded cloud piece and firmly press both cloud pieces together -glue side, you will need to repeat this step in a carousel pattern until you have connected all six clouds pieces together. Note: leave the last folded cloud piece glue FREE, and set aside for later.
  5. Next, set 3-star shapes in front of you, and follow steps 3-4. Note: leave the last folded star piece glue FREE and (again) set aside for later.
  6. Finally, the crescent moon. You may leave it as is, or you may add texture to your vellum paper moon by using a molding mat and a ball tool.
  7. To create a hammered look by placing my vellum paper moon onto a molding mat and gently pressing down with a ball tool in a circular motion until reaching the desired texture.
  8. Once all pieces are completed. Take a tree twig (from the great outdoors) or a craft wood dowel rod. It’s time to start assembling the vellum paper mobile.
  9. Start by knotting a few fishing line strands along your preferred mobile base leaving a gap of about 2″ to 3″ between fishing line strings.
  10. Next, take your main centerpiece, it could be a star, a cloud or your crescent moon, this part is up to you. Secure all pieces with washi tape. Note: this part is temporary and only necessary as you arrange your pieces to the fishing line strands; it’s much easier to start again if the placement isn’t satisfactory. Once your mobile looks right to you, then move onto the next step.
  11. Glue all open mobile pieces (clouds + stars) together in the desired position, once this step is complete; carefully remove any washi tape that may still be visible.
