Queenie! Who knew you were so talented artistically!

It's good to take off that crown and (faux) ermine robe on occasion and get your hands dirty --- literally.

OMG I love the clock.

It would be so fun to do!

How do you do it? Where do you get the clock? Are there instructions?

This would be the best present ever!!

You MUST share!!! Tell me! I used to knit and make my kids dolls when we did Waldorf homeschool. We had such a blast..just really fun!

I'd love to get creative again!

The clock was super easy, I didn't have instructions, I just winged it.

Step One - buy a clock. I got mine at Office Max for $12. I did not buy the kind where you can take out the hands, so I just worked around them.

Pop off the plastic cover
Measure the face
Cut your paper to the right size
Cut a slit up the middle to slide around the mechanism
Punch some sort of hole in the paper to accommodate said mechanism
Glue paper to clock
Take embellishments and pictures and place them where you want them
Glue down embellishments and pictures
Make sure that nothing sticks up and blocks the hands!!
Put cover back on

Wallah! Clock!

I love the clock. Everytime someone gives me a gift with such thoughtfulness, I treasure it for years. Priceless...
