Daisy chain

Does anyone have any ideas on how to use these daisies for a mobile project for a baby's room? Sam is having a baby girl (Jane) in January, and I thought it'd be neat to convert this daisy garland into a mobile of some sort. I was thinking of maybe adding other flowers or bugs or something to it. Georgia put these daisies on my desk to welcome me back to work after my honeymoon in August, and I definitely want to use them for something cool. Ideas?

And by the way, I was taking pix of the daisies with my iPhone, and for some reason it freaked out and took this weird divided image with the different angles and such. I thought the image was really cool and decided to use it for this post. I wish I could make another photo effect like that again on purpose, but I can't get it to work. I've heard of some neat apps for the camera on the iPhones, but I haven't downloaded any yet. Any suggestions?

These would look adorable as a mobile! I wonder if you went to Michael's if you could find scrapbooking bits and pieces that would work in the mobile as well...

And once my iPhone camera did some pretty funny things, but I had accidentally dropped it into a mug of water overnight and it was still drying out...not the type of apps I think you have in mind :)

That is just such a beautiful picture. Pity it was accidental and that you cannot do it again.

How about adding crystals and paperclips? This will also aid the visual and tactile development of Jane as she sees and feels the different objects, the sunlight reflections through the crystals, the coldness of the paperclips etc.
