3-D Thursday: Tick Tock Clock Box

I'm kinda a nut about clocks, so when several demos were recreating the clock box on the cover of the catalog, I thought I'd give it a try too. I picked up a cardboard gift box at my local dollar store, and a clock kit at the local craft (crap) store.

This box is a great way to highlight and save a piece of your favorite Designer Series Paper. I love the vintage look, so I stayed in that realm. This thing came together much faster than I expected, since most of it is DSP.

I was even able to throw in some Fall- and Halloween-themed sides. Very fun to add all the little accessories!

Stamps: Sense of Time, Artistic Etchings, Dark & Dreary, Greeting Card Kids, Nature Walk, French Foliage; Paper: Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Greenhouse Gala DSP, Newsprint DSP, Love Letter DSP, Nite Owl DSP; Ink: Early Espresso, River Rock, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, More Mustard, So Saffron, Blush Blossom, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Black Stazon, Basic Black marker; Accessories: Build-a-brad, Antique brad, Old Olive button, Real Red big button, Linen thread, White cord, Basic Black 1-1/4" striped grosgrain, Victoria lace, Trinket key, Aquapainter, Craft knife, 1/2" Circle punch, 1" Circle punch, Boho Blossom punch, Full Heart punch, Sponges, Color Spritzer, Log Cabin smooch spritz, Little Leaves die, Buttons #5 die, Scallop Heart of Hearts embosslit, Scallop Circle #2 die, Big Shot, Dimensionals, Clock kit.

Thanks for stopping by!

Heidi, this is sooo cool! I guess the clock hands don't have any trouble clearing the Antique Brad, huh? (I had to laugh when you said *crap* store...that's what DH and I call them, too.)
