"This project is really special for me. I LOVE cuckoo clocks. When I was a child I traveled to Vienna and I remember a clock shop with a lot of cuckoo clocks and this is one of my first memories. I made this project absolutely handmade with chipboard, glue and graphic45 paper. I use a lot of metal embellishment and I cut the deer with the silhouette cameo." -Alberto Juarez

Here's something I made using the 5X8 Kraftboard Altered Art box and the lovely French Country collection. Its kind of like a photo display box....and because it's going to be a gift, I made it such that you can slot in photos and change them around every now and then.
