step by step instructions feel free to reference the images below
Preparation: Gather your materials. Step 1: Trace your circles on the back of the card(s) selected. *The amount of circles can vary from 3 to 6, or even more. Step 2: Once all circles traced, you can begin cutting out the circles. Step 3: Fold each circle in half. Fold together, kissing each half of the front. Step 4: Begin gluing the mirror half of one circle to the half of another. Step 5: Continue this with each remaining circle until one circle remains. Step 6: At this point, if you want, cut and loop a piece of ribbon and glue in the center before adding the final circle to close the wheel. Step 7: Toss the wheel in the tree or hang on the tree and marvel at it's simplicity and beauty!
Considerations: Cards are heavier paper stock which can make wheels with more circles difficult to assemble. Keep this in mind as you experiment with different sizes of variations of the ornament.
