Altered Wall Clocks

I'm sure we were all busy during the holiday season - especially trying to figure out what to give our loved ones. Maan, a fellow scrapper, posted the altered wall clocks she made as Christmas presents! I had been wanting to make these clocks but I was afraid I might not be able to put everything back. Maan shared us a link on how to dismantle wall clocks so I finally had the guts to try it, err I mean Jeff did hehehe!

Three days before Christmas, I made these 5 altered clocks and what fun I had!

Here they are:

The first one on top was actually an experiment : ). I tried making one for us.

Materials: American Crafts pps (from Scrapbukan), Bazzill cs (hot pink), AC Donwtown ribbons (from Scrapbukan), silk flowers, button, ink, Making Memories paint, ProvoCraft word rub ons, Sizzix ransom dies, Editing software: Adobe Photoshop CS

This clock is for my in-laws.


Materials: Chatterbox Courtyard (from Scrapbukan), ink, Sizzix Ransom diecuts

This one is for Ethan's great grandmother, Nanay Cora

Materials: Chatterbox pps, ink, Sizzix Ransom diecuts (numbers), Editing software: Adobe Photoshop CS

This is for our Ninang Agnes and her family.

Materials: Chatterbox pps, rickrack, Sizzix Ransom diecuts, ink

The last one is for my dad and mom.

I used Chatterbox pps as well.

Since the clocks are quite small I used most of my scraps to finish these projects! What a way to make use of scraps, right? And since I enjoyed making these, Jeff and I decided to make these clocks as part of our photography packages!

I love the ideas of doing pictures in your wall clocks. This makes them unique and you can always see the person(s) you love.

Great idea!
