This is a "clock in a box" that I made using card and toppers from the Mackenzie kit by Kanban. It actually came about because I had made a gift box from A3 Centura Pearl card that was 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" by 1 1/2" deep and then found I didn't need it. Instead of wasting it, I decided to turn it into something decorative. I would like to enter this in the challenge at That Craft Place, the theme is "Anything Goes" and it's being sponsored by Indigo Blu.
On the inside of the lid I measured a border of 1 1/2" all around and cut an X to diagonal corners from this line. I measured another 1 1/2" in on each section and scored the lines. I then folded them all to create the frame shape. I cut a piece of Centura Pearl card to fit on top of the folded sections and glued it to hold them in place. I then layered on gold mirri card and blue polka dot Kanban card from the kit.
I cut lengths of gold mirri slightly narrower than the frame border and mitred them. I used 3mm thick foam tape to raise the middle of these pieces and curved them slightly before attaching them to the frame to give a bevelled appearance.
I used three elements to make the clock.The first was stuck directly onto the base and I used acetate "blocks" to raise the others making the large ring higher than the clock face. I placed the frame over the box base and secured in place. It now sits very nicely on my sideboard.
