Telling Time in a Royal Way

Hello and Happy Monday!  It as been two weeks exactly since my last post, but thankfully those two weeks bore some crafty fruit!  For starters I am thrilled to share with you what I cooked up for this week’s Fantabulous Cricut Challenge, Time Flies!  Make sure you head over and see what my DT buddies have created with “father time” on their creative side!  Be sure to link up a “timely” project that follows the theme that is made with at least ONE Cricut cut!

What I came up with was something that I have been needing to make for my youngest monkey or should I say princess.  I am trying to teach her to tell time and one thing I found successful in teaching time to my almost 5 year-old is to place a clock in her room when she was around 3.  Since my youngest princess’ room is pink and has a fairy princess garden theme, I decided to make a clock with a tiara and made sure all the important stuff was covered as far as glitter and it being her favorite color purple!

I found the clock at IKEA for $1.99!  It is just a plain opaque clock.  I decided to put to use some craft paint I picked up at Home Depot over the holidays. I painted it with two layers.

Then I dusted it with some purple glitter I had on hand while the second coat of paint was still wet. Using a dry paint brush dust off glitter from the clock face.

Using my Once Upon a Princess Cricut Cartrige, I cut a “pre-cut” on scrap cardstock to make sure the sizing was right before I cut the vinyl.

Once I confirmed the sizing, using Oracle Pink vinyl from Experssionsvinyl.com, I cut the image at 3 inches.  After peeling off the excess vinyl and removing the inner “H” I then burnished the image onto transfer paper and placed onto the clock face.

Of course I had to add some purple bling gems from Doodlebug Designs for the final touch!  Set aside and allow to dry and set.

This was a super easy and fun project with a great return on time!  Be sure to head over to FCCB and join in on the challenge!
