What do you need? Approximately 24 sheets of junk mail: this can be magazine sheets, grocery store ads, newspaper, whatever you’d like, as long as they are all the same size, pen or pencil used for rolling guide, scissors, tape (invisible works best), long needle (a yarn needle works best), embroidery floss, two clear CDs (the kind that protect your CD 50 packs), round cardstock circle with hole punched in middle, battery-operated clock mechanism with hands.
To make a clock, 24 of these tubes will have to be created. Start by taking your pencil or pen, and use it as a guide to roll up your sheet of paper around it.
Take a long, thick sewing needle, (a yarn needle works best) and thread your embroidery floss through. Pierce the folded pointy end of the folded tube. Color doesn’t matter for the embroidery floss–it won’t show.
