Today I want to share a fun and unique Rinea Foiled Paper Barn Clock.
We were challenged to see what we could come up with using pieces from the Rinea Clock Class at Creativation. Since we live in rural Indiana and have a farm the first thing that came to mind was to try and create a barn clock!
Step 1 - I started off by making a roof for the barn from cardboard.
Step 2 - I used gaffers tape to create a large barn door and a smaller "hay door".
Step 3 - Emboss several pieces of Ruby/Gold Glossy foiled paper with a wood grain embossing folder.
NOTE - It takes very little pressure to emboss the foiled paper.
Step 4 - Cover the barn, barn roof, large barn door and hay door with the wood grain embossed foiled paper.
Step 5 - Cut Arctic/Gold Glossy foiled paper into 1/4" strips and 1/2" strips. The size of the barn/doors will determine how many of each you will need to cut.
Step 6 - Affix the 1/4" strips of Arctic/Gold Glossy foiled paper to the barn doors to create the classic "X" style doors.
Step 7 - Use the 1/2" strips of Arctic/Gold Glossy foiled paper to edge the body of the barn and barn roof.
Step 8 - Affix the barn body and roof to a chipboard backer which will add stability and a place to attach a hanger.
What's a barn without a silo?
Step 9 - Cut a 3" x 12" rectangle from cardboard, cut the top of the rectangle so it is rounded.
Step 10 - Cover the rounded end of the silo with Arctic/Gold Glossy foiled paper and the lower portion with Sapphire/Gold Glossy foiled paper.
Step 11 - Affix the silo the left side of the barn.
Hmmmm, the barn still needs an added little touch.
How about a few bales of straw?
Step 12 - Cut 3 pieces of cardboard roughly 1 1/2" x 3" long.
Step 13 - Use a bone folder to scratch up a few pieces of Gold/Gold Glossy foiled paper.
Step 14 - Wrap each piece of cardboard with the scratchy foiled paper and add a couple strings to each bale.
Step 15 - Glue the bales to the right hand side of the barn.
You have just created your very own barn clock!
