Altered Wall Clock: FCCB Challenge #31--"On The Wall"!

This week's challenge at FCCB is called "On The Wall": create something to hang on the wall!  I have been needing a clock for the Noise Maker's bedroom and I've had this clock sitting around in a closet for a while, so I figured I'd do-it-up "Cricut style", using the Boys Will Be Boys cartridge.  Can I just tell you how much I LOVE this cartridge????  Sooooo fun for little guys!

I cut circles for each number, and added the numbers for 12, 3, 6, 9 (you know because I can barely tell time as it is, much less without ANY numbers to reference!).  Then I just chose images from the cartridge and cut them out with layers in coordinating colors and slapped them on the circle of patterned paper I cut to fit the clock face.

Now taking the hands off and putting them back on was a little tricky.  Took me a while to figure out.  But it's back together now and I think it turned out pretty cute.  Be sure to head over to Fantabulous Cricut and enter your own handmade wall decoration for your chance to win this week's prize!

Happy Crafting!!!  :)

What a great clock! I did one last year at Christmas, and those hands ARE a pain. I'm so glad you got it worked out. I love the papers and images you chose - and it looks wonderful with the numbers for the quarter hours. Great job!
