Altered Clock project using Teresa Collins Designs Summer Stories

Ok, I admit it.... I have an addiction to making clocks!! I'm going to have to start giving them away soon!! For this one I used the Assemblage Clock from Tim Holtz idea-ology. It is just a raw clock casing - You need to add your own clock mechanism. I added mine by drilling a hole in the back of the casing and the back comes off and on like a lid on a pan. Which is how I was able to "FILL" it up. :)
I loved the "Our Story" banner die cut and I was determined to use it in a fun project where I would get to see it often. I cut a strip and layered it on the (flowers side b) black tiles paper strip. Then adhered them to the outside of the clock.

I used the numbers from the back side of the bingo paper (yellow dots with black numbers paper - using the 6x6 paper pad). I luckily had a little circle punch that was the perfect size for the mini numbers and adhered them using pop dots. Depending on the length of your clock mechanism is how much depth you can add to your clock. My mechanism was about halfway between the glass and the base.

I layered a couple of die cuts to hide the clock opening and part of the stem. I think it also gives the clock a little more eye candy! Then I just added some flowers from my stash, a few buttons from the collection and some enamel dots. I love this clock so super fun!!


  1. So cute! I love that you made it a useable clock..I've only seen them with the insides fully embellished!
