You say to cut 18 circles templates ranging in size from 220mm down to 50 mm, in 10mm increments. Ummm----220mm? I have 4 Clover yo-yo circles; a 60mm (it's yellow), a 45mm (it's orange-like your example), a 30mm (it's green) & a 20mm (it's blue).
For your 220mm, are you measuring circumference BEFORE or after you've made the yo-yo? Am I to assume that a 200mm yo-yo starts with, essentially, a piece of mat'l that about 9-inches around?
The measurement in mm is of the diameter. Yes the largest one 220mm is approximately 8.6 inches across. I made cardboard templates for a range of yo yo sizes from 10mm to 240, but did not use all of them for this project. I hope this helps. If you have any other questions please reply to this comment and I should get a notice and can get back to you. Happy yo-yoing.
I thought this was so neat when it was first posted.
I'm posting the link just in case someone missed it and is wondering what this is all about.
Can someone please help me find this large wooden spool used in this Christmas tree? Spool Yo Yo Tree. I would prefer to buy in bulk/wholesale.
Thank you in advance :)
When I made this craft I purchased the spools in a small bag from Joann Fabrics and Crafts. Michael's also carries them. As to buying them wholesale there are a number of vendors on the internet that offer them.
