I tried something different and turned my layout into a working clock. I used a recessed 12”x12” scrap booking picture frame that I had bought a while back and never used because I could never decide which layout to put into it.
I started by cutting a small hole in the back board of the frame for where I wanted the clock mechanism to go through. I then glued my background paper onto the back board, cut a little hole in the paper, making sure to match it up with the hole in the board. I then carried on creating my layout as normal. Once finished I glued the mechanism in place at the back of the board, put the hands onto the clock & put it into the fame. FINISHED – A unique personalized clock that can either stand on a counter top or hung on the wall. This is going to look great in my craft room. Eventually, I will be able to see the time while I am working.
For my clock layout I used:-

QUICKUTZ FLOWERS 12”Cookie Cutter border die,
QUICKUTZ GRASS 12” border die,
QUICKUTZ RAINBOW & CLOUD Cookie Cutter die,
