Broken Baby Shabby Clock for THE CUTTING CAFE

This little silver & black clock has been spray painted for quite a while. I was just waiting for the perfect inspiration to make it a little shabby! This time 'round, Regina asked us to use any file we wanted! I opted to make some of her awesome flowers from the Paper Flower Template and Cutting File. I am always so pleased at how these turn out. The cutting file has a huge amount of bloooms and if you double them, you can really make quite a few flowers!

I like to use double sided paper. Sometimes I opt to roll the centers tighter so they are just opening, like I did here. Having used these too many times to count, I'm always pleased on how they turn out and wish I had made double! What's not to love about left over flowers.

In case you are curious, this is what I started with for my clock. I had picked it up late last January in hopes to make a Valentine's Day project out of it, but I was waiting for the perfect clock insert to show up at some point at the ReStore.

When it finally did, I then had to remember to buy a battery to make sure the clock actually worked....then had to wait until I felt like spray painting...months later I have the best little desk clock ever!!! All shabby and pretty.

Happy Saturday!
