- Two sheets of 18″ x 24″ newsprint or poster paper
- Scotch tape
- A pencil
- 12 picture frames for 2″ x 3″ photos
- 12 2″ x 3″ photos
- A clock-making kit
- A ruler
- 8.5 x 11 sheet of cardstock paper

STEP 1: PLAN IT OUT
beforelay out your two sheets of newsprint or blurb paper on a level surface, and tape them together with some scotch tape.
On top of the taped paper, orchestrate your clock part and picture outlines how you’d need them to look like on your divider.
When you’ve got all your casings laid out to your preferring, utilize your pencil to follow around the edges.
STEP 2: FILL YER FRAMES
Now it’s time to put your photos in—make sure they’re sized to fit your frames.
STEP 3: COVER IT UP
Beforewith your photographs encircled, now is the right time to make the clock part look great, as well. With a pencil, a ruler and a few scissors, draw and remove a square or rectangle shape from your letter-sized cardstock paper that is enormous enough to blanket your clock part.
We slice our spread to match with the extent of one of our casings: 3.25″ x 3.75″.
The paper clock spread you simply created will take the spot of the clock’s face when you collect all the clock pieces, so verify your spread has an opening amidst it with the goal that it will fit through the hand shaft (the bit of metal that sticks out of the clock part.)
STEP 4: PUT THE TICK TO THE TOCK
Follow the instructions that come with your clock-making kit to put it all together. Put the cover you made in Step 3 where the instructions tell you to put in the “clock face.”
STEP 5: TIME TO NAIL IT
Take following you did in Step 1 and utilize some blue tape to put it on the divider where you need your photograph clock to be.
With the edge tracings as an aide, pound in the nails for your casings on top of the tracings.
After you’re carried out pounding in the nails for all the edges and the clock piece, deliberately detach the paper guide. The nails you’ve put in the divider ought to still be in place.
STEP 6: HANG IT UP!
Pop in an AA battery, set your clock, and stand back to admire the awesome personalized clock you just made!
