Clock has a new face!

I bought this clock a while back in hopes of altering it for my craft room.  I have finally taken the time to change it up!!  Firstly, take the cover off and remove the hands.  Tech support was out getting a haircut so I checked the next best thing - You Tube.  Found a video that showed exactly how that was done.  Very easy!!  The Pooh was attached with double sided tape so it was fairly easily removed.  I measured the face - 8.5" - perfect for printing on letter size paper.  I found a clock face on CLKER and sized it to fit my clock in Corel Draw.  I went digging through my stash of decorative papers to find something that would appeal to me, was light enough to print on and would go with the white frame.  Yeah! I found a piece that worked perfectly.  I trimmed the 12x12 down to 8.5 x 11 and ran it through my printer.  Trimmed it with an exacto knife.
Here is my clock with its new face!!!!  I am very happy with it.  It was an easy project and I can change it up anytime I want.  I will consider doing it again when I get the chance to paint my craft room and decorate it more to my liking.  In the meantime, this will do wonderfully!
It was fun to alter this clock!  I purchased it at a second hand store and as you can see with very little work I have changed up the look significantly.  So if you are needing a new clock consider altering one!! You might even have one around the house that needs a bit of a lift!!  Go for it!!
