Hello there everyone,
I want to show you a fun project that I made today that is truly Out of The Box! I made a 3D Mantle clock using the new Once Upon a Time Paper Collection! I used the stamps from the collection but you could always use a real clock face instead.
I took my inspiration from this clock and made a simple pattern for the front and back of the clock:
HCPC 3303 – Posy Patch Flowers PreCut Set
HCPC 3468 – Tattered Blossoms PreCut Set
HCPC 3532 – Beautiful You PreCut Set
HCPC 3591 – Alarm and Watch PreCut Set
HCPC 3592 – Timeless Clock PreCut Set
HCD 701 – Posy Patch Die
HCD 722 – Tattered Blossoms Die
HCD 728 – Timeless Amour Die
HCD 732 – Decorative Flower Pot Die
HCD 740 – Sweet Juliet Die
HCD 744 – Once Upon a Time Die
HCDP1 241 – Once Upon a Time Paper Collection
Other products: White Card Stock, Green Card Stock, Grand Decorative Circles One, Antique Frames & Accents, Gold Rounds One, Bling and accessories from my stash, Distressed Ink, adhesive and die cutting machine.
Start by cutting the front and back of the clock out of card stock and then cutting 3 strips of matching card stock 12″ x 4″. Scor the strips of paper 1/2″ on each of the long sides and cut a series of relief cuts on both sides. These strips will be used to attach the front and back of the clock together. The relief cuts will allow the sides to match the profile of the front and back. Start by attaching the sides first, finishing with the bottom since that is the easiest part. Once you have the clock formed, I covered it again in DP allowing the top to be a little bit wider then the clock for a nice appearance. I used the Antique Frames & Accents for the lace trim and cut the frame for the clock face using Grand Decorative Circles One and Gold Circles One. Finally, add some flowers because we both know that everything is better with flowers! lol. I stamped, die cut and distressed flowers using the both the Posy Patch and Tattered Blossoms stamps and dies. Finish with some bling and enjoy!
I hope to see you again soon. I love to read your comments, thank you so much!
