Your first sentence (making the changes) is correct, because the changes are the things being made.

Because the changes are things, they must be nouns. It can then be determined that your second sentence (making changing) is not correct because "changing" is the gerund form of the verb.

  • English is so weird, I can think of several tiny changes in the wording that drastically alter the meaning. Some of them have multiple meanings themselves. Gives me compassion for ell's.
