Attempting Aloha: Personalized Teacher Subway Art Clock - free download

Thursday, December 16, 2010

Personalized Teacher Subway Art Clock - free download

Aloha! 

In true procrastinator fashion, I finished the gift for my daughter's teacher this morning! The poor thing was begging me to hurry as I (of course) had to take pics before lovingly wrapping it while she was shoveling oatmeal down. Just another typical school morning! Ha!


Luckily all the design work was done last night, and I only had to print and glue it to one of my $5 Walgreens clocks this morning. It really only took me 10 minutes to put it together. Super easy. Read my Parisian Clock or my Union Station Clock for details on how I cut out and put them together. But here's how this one started:


Add some numbers and a bunch of words that remind me of teachers, along with my daughter's teacher's name, and you have a lovely, personalized, $5 Christmas gift!






Here is the generic (no personalization) version available as a free download for you! Please live Aloha and become a follower if you use one of my free downloads. ;)

Here's the printable


And if you're looking for a personalized clock, I have them available in my new Etsy shop Travel Build Create.

Aloha,

Charlee

I've seen many takes on subway art, but I love the idea of placing it where we see it unconsciously, on a clock.

That would make a fun place for resolutions for a vision board.

Thanks for inspiring me! Following you now so I remember this project.

If you have a minute, please link this up to my creative juice party...

Hi there,

There's a new link that goes to a post describing how to make them on a smaller clock since these clocks are no longer available at Walgreens.

Aloha,
