My mother loves decorative clocks. No, really, she has about 45 of them, just in the main areas of the house. For her birthday this year (April of 2015), I decided to make her one that looks like books, however, I did not like the fact that the ones I had originally seen on Pinterest were made from real books (which is a nice idea, but is a pain when it comes to getting the pages out and can also end up being very heavy).
With that in mind, I created this:
Instead of real books, I used the book boxes that you can buy from most craft stores; they come in a wide variety of colors or patterns and sizes. I also purchased the gold sticker numbers and the clock workings and used a hole borer and hot glue to place the clock central piece in the middle book. I also glued the two side books closed so that opening the middle book to change the battery would not be accidentally cumbersome.
