Michaels Contest Entry

So Michaels is having a contest (see details here) and I made a clock to enter.  Just waiting to hear back from them as to if it has been accepted or not.  In the meantime here is a picture of the clock

what little guy didn't dream of being a cowboy someday?

Glitter Clock

Cartridges used:  George and Basic Shapes and A Child's Year

Cut the following items one time each from heavy chipboard:
5 1/2 inch circle from George
6 1/2 snowflake on page 55 from ACY
7.85 inch snowflake on shift from ACY

In design studio I did hide contour on the cut outs on the tips of the snowflakes.

Cut the above items again 2 times each on heavy white cardstock

And the final cut is the circle and 5 1/2 inch snowflake on glossy white cardstock
the 7.85 inch snowflake on shift cut from mirror cardstock in light blue.

adhere all like cuts together, on both snowflakes I sprayed with spray adhesive and topped with chunky glitter. 

Holding all together to get them centered for the hour points, find center of design and use Cropadile big bite to put hole in the center (you have to punch 3 holes very slightly overlapping each other)

Now put the pieces of a cheap 6 inch clock (such as the $3.88 ones from Wal-mart) in your new snowflake clock.  The clock is light enough that you do not need to adhere it to the little black battery box, but if desired you may.  I chose not to so that I can keep using the same hands for seasonal clocks.  The clock is also light enough that it will hold to the wall with a small 3M mount and remove picture hanger (sorry tossed the package and don't remember the actual name)
