*Tip: It helps to start out with a theme (love, baby, birthday, holiday, etc.) and gather your supplies and embellishments from there. Themes can also spark from the pictures you choose in your scrapbook layout. By having one at the very beginning, it can help make the project more organized (and help you to finish faster!).
1) Take off the clock face covering from the base, as well as the clock hands. (Depending on the type of clock you have, you may have to take off the back parts or do some unscrewing to remove the clock hands.) Use the plastic clock face covering as a guide/pattern to trace the circle background of the clock on your 12 x 12 patterned paper. Cut out circle and adhere onto clock face for the background.
2) Cut out pictures to size and adhere to solid color-coordinated cardstock. Trim cardstock around picture leaving a little border around the edges. Use the Fiskars Paper-edger scissors for a more decorative edge.
3) Decide on the placement of your pictures and adhere to clock.
4) Punch out heart shape from solid cardstock and ink the edges with a contrasting color. Stick on initials and rub-ons on the punched out heart. Adhere to clock using adhesive foam squares on the back.
5) Add word rub-ons and mark out the placement for half of the numbers of the clock face (12 to 6). This is where you will glue the flowers in place of the numbers. (You can also use actual number rub-ons or stickers to make it easier to tell the time.) After adhering the flowers, use glitter paint to make the dots in the center of the flowers. Let dry.
6) Add other embellishments, if desired. Put the clock face covering and hands back on when everything is dry.
7) *Optional: Make marks for holes (evenly-spaced) on the upper half of the clock. Drill holes with hand drill and weave ribbon through to hang on the wall.
