Recycled - Shabby Chic Alarm Clock

Hello Friends,

I have an interesting makeover today at my Blog , I have tried to use all the stuffs I hoard to recycle reuse or re-purpose! This is finally done after keeping it for years throwing out some and finally making one !

 I am talking about the empty brown tape rings , which i have used as the base ! 

Supplies used -
Brown tape ring
Sizzix Tim holtz alterations tick-tock die (BIGZ DIE-TICK TOCK)
 to cut Cardbaord and Dcwv  Pattern papers
Old wedding Invitation card is cut in circle shape 
Gift wrapping papers used for Flowers with Timholtz alterations tattered flowers die 



a message bottle 
ribbon lace 

I have painted the Brown tape ring in and out  blue with acrylic colours , for the inside backdrop  added the circle cut invitation card as the base to make it like a spool ! 

Both the ends I have stuck the Tick tock die cut which is sturdy because of the cardbaord to make it stand like a clock!

Covered the middle part with the ribbon lace from the tailors waste ! 

This is how the back end looks , incase I want to add an message , keeping it empty for now!

Made these 2  flowers out of  tattered flowers die along the gift wrapping paper waste  and secured it with the brad,  all in all used Autumn colors.......

To embellish I have added hand cut leaves and mini flowers up the side and a Butterfly sticker !

 Inside the clock a little trinklet message bottle sits with 2 lovely charms on it  to enhance the beauty of this makeover ! 

Finally on display on my wall box :)

I am playing along 

                              IT TAKES TWO ( 2 Flowers, 2 sides, 2 charms )
