You may use normal printing paper but it is highly recommended that you use card stock paper as they are more durable.
The top part of the spinner can be printed on coloured paper while the bottom part should be printed on white paper.
Using the scissors, cut out the circles. The top part printed on the coloured paper and the bottom part printed on the white paper.
If you doing this process with kids, make sure they are properly supervised.
Poke holes in the centre of the circles using a wooden skewer or a sharp pen.

Take a paper fastener and push through the hole.
Pull apart the paper fastener so that it holds both cut outs tightly but still loose enough to spin
