Brag Monday - How To Make A Clock From A Compact Disc.

You will need:


and a snack...

I found a suitable graphic here which I saved on my computer as a jpeg file then inserted it into a Word document to print out on my CD/DVD label. (Refer to your brand of labels for layout.)
Once printed, I applied the label to DVD/CD front and assembled the clock fittings.

To jazz the graphic up a bit I used one of my favourite colouring medium...

to achieve this...

Couldn't resist so I did this...

by printing out a border from The Graphics Fairy with the previous graphic.
Then another...

If you wish to add numerals to your clock you could use stickers or buy some numerals made specially for clocks, when you buy your clock workings, from a craft supplier.
I prefer to leave mine as is because I like the decorative effect achieved without them. AND we have soooo many clocks in our house, well, it doesn't matter if one or two are not so easy to read!

Thanks for stopping by AND to Karen at The Graphics Fairy!
