More "Outside the Box" Time

Remember this?
From THIS post?

I used an old drill bit box for a little photo holder.

Well I've come up with another use.
And I LOVE this one even more!
I have lots of these old pocket watch faces
in the store. Cute way to display them, yes?

How about adding an old photo again.
And clipping it in place, and making this.


I'm lovin' it!! =)
Thanks for coming by

I'm loving it too!! That looks great. I'm jealous of all those watch faces! I can never find them around here.
Great use for the drill bit box.

Just had to come back and take another peek once you told me what it was originally used for! Duh, I didn't read closely enough, did I? You are right, it is an awesome way of displaying the vintage clock faces!

Wow - never would've thunk of that! Excellent re-purposing. Watch faces are one of those sweet vintage items that are hard to display - you done them proud!

I'm stopping by from "Common Ground" - have a lovely weekend!
