Y is for Yo-Yo!



I came up with the yo-yo for my son's alphabet cards and thought it'd be fun to do a little more with the idea. To make the yo-yo, I punched two 1 1/2" cardstock circles and adhered a clear sticker to one of them. Then used my crop-a-dile to punch a 1/8" hole in the center for the brad. I adhered one circle to the card and then attached the second one over it with a dimensional. So when you look at it from the side - there are two sides with the string in the middle just like a real yo-yo!
