Y is Also For Yellow Yo-Yo

Yesterday, I shared my first "Y" craft, the Yellow Yarn Yolk.  Here's the other one I made, a Yellow Yo-Yo.


Materials: yellow, tan/brown, and blue cardstock, a screw-style bottle cap, white yarn or string, glue, scissors.

Begin by tracing your hand on the tan/brown cardstock and carefully cutting it out.  Set it aside. Cut (or punch) two circles from the yellow cardstock.  Glue them on either side of the bottle cap.

Glue the end of the yarn to the side of the bottle cap, then wind it around until the bottle cap is no longer visible. Leave about 6 extra inches of yarn, cut it off, then tie a loop at the end.  Slide the loop over the middle finger of the cut-out hand.  Glue the hand to the paper.  I chose to leave the fingers loose.  Gently pull the string taut and glue the yo-yo to the paper.

Here's what it looks like from the side.



I really like how this turned out.  Another fun addition to my Children's Crafts from A-Z!

    And thanks for the comment today on my PL This Week list ... it was a hard week in many respects. I used some hidden journaling for the things I wanted to remember but didn't want everyone to see.

  4. I love how you managed to make it dimensional. I wouldn't have thought of that. I'd have just glued the plain yellow circle down. LOL What a fun project Cindy!
