Punch craft Dove Tutorial - Recycled Clock


Quilled Recycled Craft
Broken Clocks make lovely frames for art and craft creations and I have recycled this old unattractive clock to serve as a frame for this quilled and punch craft creation.
Recycled Craft
To recycle a clock: Open up the screws , pull out the background paper and remove the clock work mechanism.

I lined the clock with this gorgeous blue paper which was a wrapping paper. Added some quilled bells  and eccentric coils.

Adhered the 3 D punch craft dove using double sided foam tape. The doves eye is a pink bead.

I love to recycle clocks and here are the links to 2 Clocks I recycled in the past: Quilled Flower Bloom Recycled Clocks

Paper creations are so fragile and broken clocks serve as an easy and economic way to protect and preserve your favorite creation.
Punch Craft Dove Tutorial
I always ponder several times before I buy a craft supply or tool - sometimes being almost miserly !Well when I saw this pear punch I thought of the uses-- How many pears can I use in card making! Well it would get pretty boring if I made only pears! The pear shape is quite a versatile one and you can use it as the body, ears,beak etc of many punch craft or paper pieced animals.You can use it to make flower petals and even a Punch craft Ganesha [ Here is the link: Pop Up Ganesha Card.]
Punch Craft Dove
Sharing here a Punch craft Dove  made using the pear punch and the scallop punch.
Punch Craft Dove
You can make a 2 dimensional dove by simply aligning the shapes or you can be more adventurous and make a 3 D dove like I did in this project.
To make the tail of the Dove: Take a scallop and fold  at an angle as shown. Stick it to the back side of the wide part of your pear as shown.
Punch Craft Dove
To make the wings of your dove:  Take a folded scallop and cut at an angle as shown
Punch Craft Dove
Apply glue on one of the folds and stick on the wide part of your pear body as shown. You need not snip off the other fold.
Punch Craft Dove
Add a cut scallop for the top wing and you are done. You can layer scallops on top of each other for a more fuller feathery appearance.

This is how the above wing scallop pieces are stuck on the pear body

And your easy Punch craft dove is ready.

If you dont have a punch you can always paper piece and use a scallop scissors.

  1. I can't believe those doves are a pear punch and some scalloped circles. That is just brilliant. Thanks for the picture tutorial. I'd have never gotten it without the visual aids. Your picture came out so cute. And, I love your revisits of other clock projects. That sunflower girl is precious. I wonder if my Kate can do that when she comes home on her college break. ;) Gotta get her to do something for this big investment.
