Woven Papercraft Hot Air Balloon Mobile

The thing I like about this hot air balloon mobile is that it takes very little glue to make. The balloons are held together primarily by weaving two star shaped pieces of paper together. Lene at PaperMatrix found inspiration for creating these balloons from traditional Danish woven paper designs.
