I absolutely love this range! Who can resist clocks, flowers and birds?! I have been wanting to get a clock for my craft room and when I got the Fab Box which had the clock mechanism I knew I needed to make a clock using this beautiful paper. The mechanism is stunning and comes with very clear instructions to put the clock together, it is also very quiet which is great!
For this project you will need:
- FabScraps Daydreaming paper range: C139 – 002, 009, 010 (x2), 012
- FabScraps Daydreaming bicycle stencil
- FabScraps Daydreaming large sticker sheet
- FabScraps Daydreaming working clock mechanism
- FabScraps random brass charms
- FabScraps Roman Numerals from the First Sip Chipboard Album
- FabScraps white craft glue
- Double sided foam tape
- Dew Drop Brilliance – Lightning Black ink
- Flowers (I used some from my stash)
- Cut 2 circles from hardboard:
- 1x 20cm circle (cut hole in the centre of this circle just big enough for the mechanism to come through)
- 1 x 28cm circle (with 15cm circle cut from the centre. This is to allow for the back of the clock mechanism to stick through.)
- Cut the identical circles from patterned paper. The 20cm circle from 002 and the 28cm from 010. Stick to the hardboard with an even layer of glue.
- Use texture paste with the clock shape from the bicycle stencil on the bigger circle and let that dry.
- Ink the roman numeral numbers and the outside edges of the 2 circles with the ink.
- Glue the roman numeral numbers around the edge of the smaller circle. I used a saying cut from 012 and matted it on left over paper from 010 and stuck it just above the bottom roman numerals. Once that is dry you can attach the clock mechanism.
- Fussy cut one each of the two fussy cut pages (009 and 010). Decorate the bigger circle with the fussy cut images, stickers, brass charms, and flowers.
- Finally stick your two circles together using foam tape.
