Yo-Yo Valentine Craft Project

Yo-Yo Valentine Craft Project

Yo-Yo Valentine
Hi there everyone, it’s Andrea from The Cottage Market. I am so happy to be doing a craft project along with a home DIY each month here at the Graphics Fairy.  Today’s project is easy beyond belief and is a perfect little token that anyone would love. It’s a Yo-Yo Valentine!
Yo-Yo Valentine Craft
For this project you will need:
a yo-yo…you can find these plain wooden yo yo’s at Tarjay in their $1 section…they come in different colors so you don’t even have to bring out the paint!
Print the images of your choice…that’s the hardest part…there is such a variety here it will take a while to make your decision. I used the Retro Valentine Girl image and also the Retro Boy image for this project.
Then you need a brush,  some Mod Podge and of course a scissors to cut the image. That’s it!

Brush the Mod Podge on the entire circle top…

then if you are working with a square, place it right on top of the yo-yo…
allow it to dry.  If using a cut out…brush the Mod Podge on the back of the
image…wait a minute and then apply to the yo-you.
Now when the glue dries on the square one (approximately 5 minutes) Take a sanding block or piece of sand paper and remove the excess paper…this works great…smooth and perfect!  REPEAT on the other side…add a few coats of Mod Podge over the images and you are done!  It’s that easy.  You can add a little embellishment if you like and then pack it up in a cute little cello bag…attach a card and give someone a smile!

They are cute…fast and fun.  Hope you enjoy this little craft and here’s wishing
everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day!…(((HUGS)))
