DVD/CD Clock Tutorial

Thanks to our amazing Uncle Phil our family got the Star Wars series on BluRay when it came out. We had the complete series on DVD before that, but over time those discs have gotten scratched and sadly pushed aside. That is until the other day...
I had been dying to make a clock for a long time, and my original plan was to make a sunburst clock. That is still on my to-do list, but when I saw my lonely little Star Wars DVDs I knew what I had to do. This will work with any CDs or DVDs and makes a great addition to your movie/TV area.

Materials:
10 DVDs or CDs
E6000 glue
a clock mechanism kit, or a mechanism taken from an old clock
embellishments (optional)

Separate your discs into 2 sets of 5. Arrange them as shown below and glue them in place using E6000.
When arranging your discs make sure the front sides are where you want them before you glue.


The outer set of discs will have one disc the sits on top of the others. Make sure this is straight!
The inner set of discs will have one disc behind the others. The mechanism will be mounted to this disc so make sure it is on the underside when facing forward and on the outside when facing the back. See the photos for reference.

Stack the outer set of discs on top of the inner set of discs. This will be how the front of your clock looks so make sure everything is straight. Glue sets together with E6000.

Can you tell my toddler got a hold of the crayons??

Now it is time to attach the mechanism. Glue the mechanism to the back of the inner set of discs as shown. Allow it to dry before flipping it over.


Once the glue on the clock has dried flip it over and slide the clock hands into place.



You can display this on an easel or hang it on the wall by gluing a soda can tab to the back of the mechanism.

What discs will you use to make this clock?

Happy crafting!

  13. Ce sac cartable Michael Kors est si universel qu'il pourrait plaire à tout le monde. Dans cet article, je vais essayer de passer en revue les caractéristiques principales et les éléments qui distinguent ce sac à main des autres.

    L’extérieur de ce fourre-tout Michael Kors est un cuir métallisé de laiton froncé et froncé. Si vous connaissez les sacs à main Michael Kors, vous savez que ce cuir sera doux et souple. Les deux grandes poignées supérieures sont attachées au sac avec quelques centimètres de chaînes dorées, puis les moitiés supérieures des bretelles présentent le même cuir couleur laiton.

    La diversité des couleurs et la taille utilisable de ce sac le rendent parfait pour un usage quotidien. Les poches intérieures ne manquent pas pour aider à garder les choses en ordre. Il y a des endroits parfaits pour votre téléphone ou votre Blackberry. Le zip top empêche les malfaiteurs de saisir votre sac dans un bar et aide également à contenir tout ce qui se trouve à l'intérieur lorsque vous courez pour créer ce train.

Many conservationists believe that zoos should concentrate on preserving the purebred tigers rather than breeding different color forms. These color variations are massively popular in the entertainment industry and thus people continue to breed them.
