Just for a size comparison
Anyway, I chose this image, cut it out, then adhered it to a piece of book board. The picture cut out is only 1.75 x 1.75", really darling when it is that small.
Next I tried it on several of the ATC size papers inside Paper Stash - Lost and Found. Should I use the daily note paper?
The board was 4" wide so I cut it 5.5" long. Okay, my husband was at work so I used my Olfa roller cutter to cut the wood. It worked, but I might need to change the blade soon. After it was cut and sanded, I covered the wood with Sticky Back Canvas.
I cut another piece of book board (2.5 x 3.5")for the ATC size paper from the Paper Stash. Which one did I choose? The subway sign.
I inked the paper with Broken China Distress Ink to give it a subtle blue color then adhered the paper to a bookboard piece. I sanded the edges to take away some of the text, then inked with Frayed Burlap.
Next, a Word Band.
Cover with Snow Cap Paint Dabber.
I cut the yardsticks (again, with my roller cutter) so they fit the initial book board piece then glued them together with wood glue and taped the edges together with blue painters tape until dry.
I added the Clock Key to the top of the box with one of the new long screws.
Oh, but one last shout out to Olfa for making a blade sharp enough to cut through wood! Every girl's dream!
