THIS. IS. PURE. GENIUS! would it be possible to achieve this effect with usual cardstock or coloured paper instead?

I think cardstock would work.  Colored paper might be too light and would curl.

Where did you buy the paper? I am having a hard time finding vellum in small quantities and various colors.  Thanks.

I loved this idea, so I was going to put larger ones up on a permanent basis.  Beware of a long term installation (not that it was ever recommended in the first place), because the vellum will curl if exposed to humidity.  Needless to say, it didn't last long in Texas.  Such a shame!  They looked so pretty!

Have you tried other papers besides vellum?  I live in Houston and would like to keep the mobiles up longer than a couple of days.

These would look great in a tent. They would add really nice color.

my venue has some pretty tall ceilings but I bet on a large scale, these would be quite a statement piece! I like!

I wonder if there's any way to do these without a sewing machine? I think they're awesome! I just don't have a sewing machine or any sewing skill :(
