So big shout out to the lovely Rackycoo who made an awesome altoid tin clock that inspired me to make one as well! The project directions come from Design Sponge! http://www.designspongeonline.com/2009/04/diy-project-tin-letterpress-clock.html


This picture was taken with the vintage setting on my camera, very vintage Florida beach house, now i just have to figure out how to get the beach house....


here it is with no color distortion


Supplies:
Clock kit 5.99
Aqua paint .59
Loteria Card (1/52 of a 3.00 pack)
random feathers
card stock .10
Altoids 1.79

Less than 10 bucks for a pretty stinking cute little clock to put on my fridge!

Great job! Did you paint the hands?

I guess I never actually made a separate post of mine; it's in the "Be Awesome Again swap" gallery.  Cheesy
