Step 2: Spinner Body

  • The body of spinner is made entirely from cardboard
  • The dimensions is shown in the image
  • The center is located in the body by drawing cross lines
  • Hole is made using toothpic
  • One more piece is made with same dimensions

Step 3: Caps

The coverings caps are made from discs of cardboard

Step 4: Weight Attachment

Instead of bearings Ive used coins which is placed at the ends of the cardboard

Step 5: Finishing

  • Toothpic is inserted between the disc then between the center holes and repeat same for other side also
  • Give a rotation many times untill the movement is fully free and then enjoy!!

    Go to the doctor's office and get 2 tounge depressers, then add 2 coins at each end, finally put a toothpick through both tounge depressers and ta da a spinner

    Although I'm actually not sure of your measurements for the main portion of the spinner, from your pictures, it's 2 cm by 9 cm is this correct?
