Making a Paper Clock

With Dreaming Tree

Can you believe this is paper? This beautiful 3D floral paper clock is made using an SVG file from Dreaming Tree. I am so excited to be working with them on this post. I’ve admired Dreaming Tree from afar for a while. Their creations are amazing. I was a bit intimidated when I chose the clock file, but I found it really easy to work with once I got started.

I would first like to thank Designer Crafts Connection for the opportunity to work with amazing companies and designers. And specifically for this post, I would like to thank Dreaming Tree for providing me with the opportunity to work with their SVG files.

There are nine other projects created for this Design Crafts Connection hop. Please take a moment to visit all the projects to see which SVG file each designer chose and how they personalized their projects.

Many of the items I use in my posts are provided by the manufacturers in order to promote their products.
A special thanks to those brands who sponsor this site.

The Process:

card stock

Once I chose my card stock colors, I felt more confident. At least I had a plan to start with. All the card stock I chose, except for the navy, is from Cricut.

Cricut Maker

I cut all the card stock on my Cricut Maker. You can see I used washi tape on my mat as an extra precaution. A setting of 100# card stock worked well with all the cuts.

cut pieces

I followed the PDF file included in my download from Dreaming Tree and progressed through cutting all the different colors of card stock.

putting it together

I began following step by step with the video on the Dreaming Tree website for the pendulum clock file I chose. I did alter a few pieces and chose a different look for my clock. The more I progressed through the steps the more excited I became to see the end result! I couldn’t stop. I worked through the entire project in one sitting.

clock parts

I didn’t care for the gold clock hands that were included in my clock kit so I decided to change their color using an alcohol ink marker. Of course mixing yellow and blue make green, but I much preferred it to the gold hands.

Here is a close-up of the finished clock at an angle. I really loved the entire process. Although this was my first Dreaming Tree project, it definitely will not be my last!

And the best comment of all – I showed it to my teen daughter and she said, “Can I have it!”
