Repurposed Inspiration: Pizza Box Clock

pizza box featureRecently my daughter and son-in-law came for a visit and they went off on their own for lunch to a local pizza place I have never gone to.  When they returned with this pizza box that had their leftovers inside, I grabbed the box because I have never seen such a cute takeout container! pizza box clock The graphics on the box are so cool…I wanted to try making a clock by adding some color to the already fabulous design and inserting a mini quartz clock movement. pizza box side
