As soon as I saw this beautiful font I knew it would be perfect for the kitchen clock I have been designing in my head for months. This project went really quick for me. Many of today's paper have wonderful scenes on full pages that make projects like this a snap. I chose a paper stack from Recollections called Rooster Provincial . The full 12 x 12 sheet with the framed silhouette of chickens was used for the top portion of the canvas. I then picked the red and white striped paper for the bottom section and the chicken wire print for the edges. The clock face is from the premier circle cartridge French Manor. The numbers and letters are all from Extreme fonts free in Cricut Craftroom this week. Thanks PC!! Any number of combination of papers, fonts and phrases or images can be used for this project to make a very unique clock for your own home or as for a gift for someone special.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

Project Cut Files

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Begin by covering the 12 x 16 Canvas frame with chosen paper. To cover top use one

full 12 x 12 sheet plus a piece cut at 6 x 12 for the bottom section and bottom edge.

Score this cut piece 1.5 inches up from the bottom.
Next cut ( 4 ) 12 x 2.5 pieces and (2) 4 x 1.5 pieces for covering the edges. Ink the

edges of all the papers.
Use double sided tape to adhere paper to the canvas. Sand the overhanging edges of

the paper smooth with a sanding block and then ink over edges.
The clock face ( clock-s) from French Manor is cut at 11.25 inches. Cut once from the
back side of one of Tim Holtz's Ideology Crowded Attic paper in tan. The second clock
face ( clock-s) cut from a contrasting paper from Over the Moon Press called Blue
Crackle.
The outer ring cut from the tan paper and the inner sections in the ring from the blue
crackle paper are all that used for this project. Save the other cuts for a future project.
Measure to find center and adhere clock face and the contrasting interior sections to
canvas.
Cut the numbers 1 through 12 @ 1.75 inches from black cardstock. Exreme font has

the perfect numbers for a clock!! Adhere numbers in the correct positions in the clock

face with a glue pen.
Using CCR and Extreme Font to make a phrase, this could be whatever you like. I

chose to cut "Homegrown Kitchen". Letters cut at 2.5 for the tall letters and 1.278 for

the short letters. I welded some portions of the phrase where it matched up and

seemed reasonable.
I cut the phrase two times, one in dark brown cardstock and the other in a tan

cardstock. With a glue pen adhere the tan or lighter colored phrase offset on top of

the darker phrase cut so that you see a shadow peeking out from behind the top

layer. Glue down phrase using a glue pen. If prefered a sealer like mod podge or craft

spray sealer can now be used on the clock to make it more resilient. Let sealer dry.
With a ruler measure to find the center of the clock face and mark it. Using a paper

piercer make a hole on the mark. From the back of the canvas insert the clock

mechanism making the hole bigger with a craft knife as needed. Snap on the clock

hands to the front of the clock on the clock mechanism. Move all the clock hands to

12 o'clock and install the battery. Congrats!! Your beautiful personalized clock is now

finished.
