I saw a blog entry online about using an Altoid tin for a clock housing, and I had to give it a try, especially since I have a vast collection of empty Altoid tins that are just screaming for attention. I didn't have a favorite greeting card, so I used a little chipboard house for the clock face. I styled this similar to the Valentine houses I made for Alpha Stamps, but gave it a woodsier feel. I am a little more comfortable with these colors, as opposed to all the pink I used before.

Clock workings are relatively inexpensive; I got mine at Michaels with a 40% coupon, and I believe it cost less than $3.00. Not too bad for a little minty fresh clock!
