Yo Yo Christmas: Decorating Your Christmas Presents With Handmade Holiday Yo Yo Embellishments

Learn How To Have A Yo Yo Christmas: Ideas From "Hello My Name Is Heather"

How To Make Yo-Yo's For Your Holiday Gifts

I always loved the Yo -Yo quilts my grandmother made when I was growing up. Thrifty housewives in the 1930s-1940s were up-cycling and re-cycling old linens, blouses and fabric remnants way before these terms became part of our popular lexicon. Old fabric were made into circles and sewn to form Yo-Yo's as they were called.

Attaching Yo Yo's To Gift Wrap

I found a wonderful blog called "Hello My Name Is Heather"  with a terrific easy tutorial on how to go about making Yo-Yo projects. I loved this idea Heather shows on her blog about having a Yo-Yo Christmas and using Yo-Yo 's as gift toppers.
