- On top of the box, write the message - " To me You are:"
- The next step would be to cut complimentary words and phrases from the newspapers and stick it on the larger circle, to complete the message.
- Make sure that the words you stick are well-spaced, so that only one word can be seen at a time. also, ensure that the words or phrases you cut aptly fit in the small rectangular box or window.
- The last step would be to poke a hole at the center of both the wheel and attach them using a paper fastener. Beautify the top wheel with more Mother's Day greetings and messages.
