I started with a couple of A4 sheets of manila cardstock and decorated them using the smudged stamp technique and various stamps from my Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz' sheets, then I cut the sheets up into sections to fit the panels on the box. The gadget gears and weathered clock are diecut from petfood boxes, stuck together back to back (to hide the advertising blurb and make them even sturdier) and decorated with Ranger paint dabber in gold. Pieces of Tim's tissue tape are added to the decorated panels. A screw brad fixes the hands onto the clock, and a chain with a muse token draped over the cogs.
"It folds flat!"
Hey lookie here, the whole thing folds flat for posting!
We had some rare sunshine and I took the opportunity for a glamour shot lol! The sun has washed out the colours, but I love the shadows from the gears.
