We won this clock by a charity tombola in our primary school 4 years ago. This clock never works, and truly: its very very ugly.

Cheapiest golden plastic and the picture is better than the reality:


since the day this catastrophe came in our house i dont know what to do with this piece of....

3  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 101 ENTRIES / Emergency Flashlight Box - Many Pics! on: August 08, 2014 04:00:35 PM
Hello and greetings from germany and sorry for my bad english...

Im so sad, that i missed the 100st challenge, but now i want to be a part at the 101st challenge. So here my entry: The Emergency Flashlight Box - Upcycling with style :-)


And here the story of the box:
.
First the question: Suddenly theres no electricity in your house and you search a flashlight, wehre do you search? This happens to me and in the dark i search in the cabinet, in the cupboard... before i found my flashlight, the lights go on and i dont need the flashlight anymore.

But what i making next time?Huh Then i read the text of this contest and i have a idea. I go to the garage and take out my messiebox (the box where everything ends, that too good for the garbage) and i found this:

a old Floppydiskbox (for the younger people: floppy disk are the memory stick of the dinosaurs with incredible 1.44 MB storage.....NOT GB: MB!!!)



a used can of spray paint in red with a little bit of paint in it


a used and broken plastic container from toothpicks


2 glow in the dark stars from my daughter


1 small garden solar lamp


1 part to hold garden tools on a wall (i dont know how its named in english


i take the floppy disk box and spray it with the paint emergency red



.
then i take the matal holder and fix it in the middle of the box


.
it was the holder for my flashlight:

.
the broken plastic container, i fixed with tape

.
yes, the fixed plastic container is for the reserve battery:


.
the "glow in the dark star" i glue on the battery pack to find it in the dark
.
Put it togehter and you will see this:



.
But what is, if i need the flashlight, and the "glow in the dark star" shines not so long???
.
I need a spotlight!
.
So i took the solar garden lamp...


part for part


make a hole in the top of my box


and push the LED from the Solar lamp through the hole


and fix it

Here you can see the LED inside of the box


and here from the outside


then put it all together and

VOILA, the emergency Flashlight Box is ready for the wall:




.
The solar lamp loads the battery at day, and at night the LED shines on the flashlight.

If it hanging on a central place in the house you could find it anytime in the dark..
