Tick Tock


Per my husband's request, I made a birthday card for his brother, Joe. I created a clock face using the numbers from the small letter JutRite set. I had a Sizzlit die cut of gears that I hadn't used yet, and pulled that out to add something extra to the clock face. I made my own arrows and attached them with brads.

My trusty Cricut helped me make a title to go along with the clock theme. The patterned paper is some I picked up on clearance at Hobby Lobby.

And since I had spent all that time getting the numbers just so for my clock (I have the inky fingers to proof it!), I brainstormed another project. This is what I came up with:



It's a telling time practice book for my first grader. I stamped a cover and then added pages with blank clocks. I used the large JustRite numbers to stamp a time. Now, she will have to draw in the arrows to reflect the written time.
I bound the book with brads, so I can add and substract pages as she fills it up. Once we've mastered the full hours, it's on to the half hours.

These were fun to make, and pretty quick (once I had the stamp prepped).


Thanks for stopping by!

Susan,
Love the telling time book for Emma. What a great idea. Makes me wonder where all my free time goes, I only have one more mouth than you to feed and I don't work, go figure.
Regarding your previous post, Emma looks so cute in her uniform. That's the same plaid St. Agnes uses. Too cute.
Tell the girls and John HI.
