Okay lets do it. I started a new thread but I would trade mixes personally. Drop me your mail address so I can get working on it?
Tape VS CD? Or one of each?

I make clocks from found and recycled items. It's pretty easy, and you can see photos (and buy!) my clocks at newyorkclocks.etsy.com

I started doing it purely on a whim to turn an everyday object into something functional, and now I have made probably a hundred different clocks. Item ideas are: product boxes, postcards, photos, cd boxes, you name it!

To consider: sturdiness of item, where you are going to drill the hole, is it too thick to put the clock shaft through, and how will you mount or stand the clock? For me, I use flat items that can be easily drilled, and I have little stands to hold the clocks up on a table top. I don't do wall clocks, but it is no harder to make those.

you will need: a drill, clock parts (mechanism, hands, screws etc), the item, a stand of sorts, matte board if using postcards or photos.

It's a pretty inexpensive craft if you find the items to make the clocks from instead of buying them. People love the tea tins but they are harder and harder to find used without buying a bunch of expensive teas. Have fun!

yeah i have been nagging :) but it is an awesome community and it inspired me to make a new zine in a mini zine trade we did in the MINI ZINE FOLKS GROUP! I will send you a copy of it (it's called Dogear and it's my first try at a per-type zine) I know you will enjoy it here and any inspiration to make more zines is awesome!!
