Monthly Circle Challenge, Celebrating Creativity

This is my project for the monthly circle challenge that is due tonight on the Circle Blog.  I have already made one clock, kind of as a prototype, but this was specifically made for the challenge.  I wanted to take pics as I made it so you could recreate it to. 

Here are the rules of the challenge:

The theme for this month’s challenge is all about celebrating the reasons why you love to create! Please create a scrapbook page or home decor project CELEBRATING CREATIVITY. Project must be newly created for this challenge and should include atleast 2 cuts to qualify. You must also:
•Use the Shadow Feature
•Use Patterned Paper (purchased, printed, or created with stamps, etc.)
•Use Embellishments to Enhance One of the Cuts (pearls, buttons, gems, glitter, etc.)

I started with cutting a piece of Kraft cardstock 10x10 and I scored 1 inch all the way around it.  I then cut out the corners, folded and glued it together to from a lid.
Make 2 of these Lids.

I then took 2 8x10 pieces of craft cardstock and scored on each side, 1 inch in from the sides, just on the sides, not on the top and bottom.
I also took x 8x8 pieces of cardstock and glued to the scored cardstock to form a tube.

I then took one of the lids and attached it to the bottom of the box.

Then I added printed cardstock to the sides.

The above pic is with the printed cardstock attached and the other lid put on.  Now I have the base of a box and I can start decorating it how I like.

The above cuts are from French Manor.

In this pic I added Ribbons and Button to the lid, but before that I attached cardstock.

Here is the finished project.  I created a clock face with stamps and buttons, and added clock works that I got at Hobby Lobby.

The words create and inspire were created on my Gypsy using the shadow feature, the font is from Song Bird.

Until next time,
