A White Clock...How boring!!

The child care centre that I work in, has had that same clock since it's opening over 10 years ago...

And it decided to stop working after all this time...

So one of my partners in crime bought this clock so that we could still record the children's sleep, time of pick-up & of course, medication times, if we needed to.

But we couldnt just have  a boring white clock now, could we?  NO - YUCK!!

So using the Mythical Creatures Designer Paper & co-ordinating cardstock, punches & dies, I was able to create something that works sooooo much better & is so much more appealing for the little people in our care!!

 I learnt, by damaging 2 other clocks, that the hands are not supposed to be pulled out & so I had to cut the top layer of the Whisper White cardstock. This allowed the cardstock to sit flat & yet allow the hands to rotate properly, as they should, right??

And of course, the numbers had to be an addition to this clock - it is a learning tool, after-all!!

I do love how this turned out, sooo much better than the white, plain clock, dont you agree?

Thanks for stopping by, come back soon to see what else Ive been working on :)
