Grab a vintage hardcover off your shelf and create this incredible clock that you can display anywhere. This DIY also makes a great wedding prop for a vintage old-fashioned affair.
Place one clock hand on top of the cover of your book exactly where you want the clock to be.
Place a dot where the clock hands will be so you don't misalign the clock body with the hands.
Trace the large clock movement (where the battery goes) onto the book pages. (Make sure the pointing part is facing up).
Then, using your X-Acto knife, begin cutting the pages so they are deep enough to fit the entire clock movement. This can take up to an hour or so, depending on the size of your movement. Cut the pages deep enough so that the book closes normally.
Remove the cut pages.
Using your X-Acto knife, push a hole through the marker you placed earlier. Be sure the hole in the cover lines up with the pointing part of the clock movement inside.
Carefully cut out a hole that fits over the pointing part of the clock movement perfectly. This may take a few tries to get it to fit just right.
Fit the top part of the movement through the hole and shut the book.
