Good morning everyone, This is just a quick post before I head on out for the day. Yesterday I finally finished my very first non-card project, a Tando Cuckoo Clock. I've had this Tando chipboard clock
kit for quite some time now but have never quite known what I would do with it, but after my crafty tidy
up a couple of weeks ago when I stumbled upon a Beautiful Chinese silk scrapboob kit and I thought
that the gorgeous silk papers would be perfect for thie project.
To make this clock I've used the following :-
Tando Cuckoo Clock, Chinese Butterfly 12x12 Scrapbook papers, 3 Wooden flourish lasercut
embellishments from Hobbycutz, Seafoam embossing powder, Vintage Photo Tim Holtz distress
inkpad, Butterfly punch, Silver chain and Flat back pearls.
The first thing I did was to cover the Tando clock back, front, roof and pulls with the
Chinese 12 x 12 scrapbook papers and then trimmed away the excess with my craft knife.
I then heat embossed the wooden lasercut flourishes with the Seafoam embossing powders.
The next step was to glue all the pieces together, then I cut out the stamped image of the
clockface and aged it with Vintage Photo distress inkpad. I then added some pearls to some
punched butterflies (from the same papers) The next step was to add the chains and pulls,
this bit was quite fiddly to do because they just didn't want to lie straight lol.
I then added the clock mechanism.
And Hey Voila one finally finished Tando Cuckoo Clock.
I really hope that you like it.
I would like to enter this project into the following challenges :-
