You don't have to buy a special die to make a paper yo-yo. I made mine by cutting a 2" strip of pattern paper. I punched the edge with a border punch and then scored lines every 1/4 inch. I inked the edges and then folded the paper in a zig zag pattern and attached the two ends. I hot glued a paper punched circle on the top and bottom of the folded paper to keep it in place. I wanted to frame my yo yo with the lace corner stamp. First I stamped the top right and bottom left. There wasn't room for the entire stamp for last two corners, so I masked off the area I already stamped and then added these two corners. I knew my bow and my tag would cover most of the "blank" areas where the stamps didn't meet.
I finished off the card with a pretty bow, some mulberry flowers, and a pretty flourish.
I hope you liked my card and will visit the other Serendipity Design Team members and see what they've come up with for this challenge! Just click on their names listed alphabetically below to jump to their blogs.
