Great hoops! That's my favorite of their songs.

When I first read the challenge description I immediately thought of this project, as it has been on my list of things to do ever since I saw one somewhere. I'm super excited about the result.

The Book Clock!



The colors are nearly true-to-life, but in reality the book is a greenish-grey and the insides of the dots are just green. And the green coordinates very well with the green design on the spine.

I will admit I felt a little bad about defacing what could be good literature, but decided while cutting a hole in the pages that it really didn't look very good. Sorry Nick Tosches.

Went to the thrift store to find an ugly and cheap clock to disassemble, and was lucky enough to find one with pretty hands. Then I searched for a book without any writing on the cover that would be fat enough to house the clock mechanism.

I covered the spine of the book (which was water-damaged and had an embossed title) with a strip of wallpaper from one of my many wallpaper sample books, and used other coordinating wallpaper to make the numbers and dots.

Because I'm in love with this wallpaper, here's a closeup of the spine. It has gorgeous texture and almost looks like fabric. If it was fabric, I'm pretty sure I'd make my wedding dress out of it.



The hardest part was spacing the number markers out properly, but I managed to do it without a calculator or protractor.

Front view, that better shows the roman numerals and other dot markers.



Hope you all like it! Comments and criticisms welcome, especially since I'm not usually a papercrafter.

I'd probably be in if it was during the summer! Also gives me time to catch up, I'm about a season and a half behind...

Those hoops are so funny! Totally seems like something my dad or grandpa would do if they had a caravan!

I'm also still here! Thought I had decided, but I had an epiphany while avoiding homework yesterday and may have to change my mind. Spring break next week, so once I get home I plan to stitch and veg!

Still just at the planning-in-my-head stage. After weeks of no homework I have to finish a program for Friday, and it just isn't working right now. Sad

Once the weekend comes I should be able to get some ideas down on paper and start gathering materials.

I love the trilobite! My dad used to call me that when I was little, so I may have to make myself one. The 3D really brings it to life!
