ANOTHER IDEA FOR CUSTOM MADE WOODLAND CREE CLOCK

I came up with another idea for a custom clock. I made a collage of pictures above and below the actual clock face. It is similar to the one I made for my sister. Feel free to share and maybe make your own Cree clock.

nisīmis and her Custom Made Woodland Cree Clock

Two weeks ago, nisīmis (my younger sister) lent me $40. Last week, I showed her my Woodland Cree clock and told her maybe I should make them with personal pictures as a background. She thought it was a good idea and then asked me to make her a clock with her sons as the background to pay for the $40 bucks I owe her. I agreed and worked on it last night.

I had the picture laminated and placed it in a document frame. I took the glass out and replaced it with the laminated picture. It turned out okay and looks good. I choose a light plastic frame which is light enough to be held up by a thumb tack.

I just thought I would share the story and maybe give some ideas on what can be done with a custom clock. Have a good evening. maybe next time, I will try an 8×10 frame, this was an 8.5×11 frame so I would not have to cut the laminated picture.

FREE PDF Downloads – Plains & Woodland Cree Clock

This past week, there has been a great response to my DIY Cree clock posts. Unfortunately, I posted the images in haste and some mistakes were pointed out but I think I have them all corrected now. I am sorry if this has caused any inconvenience.

For my haste and mistakenly posting the clock images (now updated) , I have posted the following list of all the clocks I have on this website, in Plains & Woodland Cree, already for download in PDF format. Just download and print, easy. I am hoping to complete a Telling Time in Cree lesson next week, so please stay tuned for that.

I appreciate the great response from my followers. One of my former colleagues, Cynthia Cook, had a novel idea. She wants to download and print one of the clocks I have on this website and fit it into her old clock. I told her, it is a great idea and it would liven up an old boring clock that has been hanging on a wall for years. Why not give that a try.

Because of my mistake, I will have to reprint my clocks but at least the DIY Clock Tools are easy to transfer. Again, I apologize for my haste and hope you will take the time to re-download your favourite design. The previous blog posts will remain the same but the FREE CREE IMAGES page has updated images, check it out.

 

Update on “Do it Yourself” WOODLAND CREE CLOCK

[Note: FREE PDF DOWNLOADS – PLAINS & WOODLAND CREE CLOCK – Charlie]

Since my previous post, I MADE MY OWN WOODLAND CREE CLOCK, I went to a printing business and got 3 different clocks printed out and laminated.

First, I had to insert the images into a WORD document and then [Wrap Text] to [In Front of Text] to resized the image to 8′ inches and centred it. I then Exported it as a PDF and saved to a thumb drive.

I got them printed with the settings shown on the receipt above.

I did the hard work for you and they are available in PDF for  Download:

Here they are, printed and laminated.

I got my DIY CLOCK TOOLS and put a hole in the middle of the clock and cut around it (I didn’t do the best job but a more craftier person could do a better job, I’m sure).

Here is the finished product, all it needs is a battery. Please like and share.
