Trendy? Duh. Annoying? Extremely. Addictive? We may or may not be spinning one right now. Skip the store-bought fidget spinner and create a one-of-a-kind version for yourself or your kids with this easy tutorial.
What You Need:
- Card stock
- Safety pin
Step 1: Cut the card stock into four small circles and one propeller shape.
Step 2: Poke holes in the center of each of the circles and the propeller with a safety pin or thumbtack.
Step 3: Apply a spot of glue to the back of one of the circles and thread the toothpick through the hole. Add a second circle to the toothpick and press the pieces of paper together to seal the glue and attach the pieces to the toothpick.
Step 4: Add the propeller to the toothpick.
Step 5: Repeat step 3 with the two remaining circles, leaving about ¼ inch between the first circle set and this one (the propeller needs space to spin).
Step 6: Snip the excess toothpick ends from the spinner and decorate with stickers.
