At the tone, the time will be . . . CHEERS! Oh my did I have fun making this project for Xyron’s Paper Smooches Blog Hop we are in the throws of this week. As some of you may know I have a love affair with fermented grape juice and lucky for me, I live in California so I can tromps around in local vineyards where I was inspired to make this clock to help me keep track of when it is WINE TIME! 🙂
When I saw Paper Smooches “Free Spirits” stamp set I knew I wanted it! I gathered up some cute Die Cuts With A View cork sheets (because when there is wine there is cork) and with the help of Xyron 3 inch Sticker Maker and 1.5 inch and 1 inch punches I turned an old craft clock base into the best time teller on the planet!
The designed cork sheet already had an adhesive backing so that was easy peasy to trace, cut, and adhere to the face. I used the 1/2 inch punch for the “in between number” spots using the design cork sheet.
I used the 1.5 inch punch on a plain cork sheet and stamped it using black and white ink. I inked the edges and ran through the Xyron 3 inch Sticker Maker and adhered to the clock face.
I inked the edges of the clock and added the clock motor and hands and called it done.
There you have it, another super easy home decor project that has some fun character and at least for me, some important time telling abilities.
