  3. Hand sew print yo yo to white yo yo, 1/3 of the way down on the white yo yo to form "wings"
  4. Sew a button in the middle of the print yo yo.
  5. Draw eyes and use rouge or lipstick to make cheek color on the wood disc (face of the angel).
  6. Glue face onto angel and hand sew plastic ring (halo) above face.
