Step 5: Finally - a clock my wife can be proud of

After a little dissapointment about the buttons not in alignment and a little glue I got on the paper - I convinced myself to hang this on the wall.

It is now 3:00 am. I can't wait to see who, in my family, notices the clock first!

The clock says - "it's time to go!"
I like. Very creative. If I was going to do the same thing, I would add only four numbers to it, at the 12, 9, 6 and 3 positions. That way you could have a proper 12, using the numbers one and two, leaving the others spare to use as 9, 6 and 3 respectively. If I were to do it, I would have round number buttons too, I have a few old phones lying around here somewhere, so I can afford to be picky! It wouldn't be so obvious the numbers came from a phone, but that is of course personal choice, I expect that the appeal here is that it's obvious they came from a phone, adding a conversation topic starter. Nicely written instructable, ten minute make, concise.. that's the word. :-)
Very crafty!
Okay, now my wife wants to keep the clock. Oh, and my 8 year old noticed the clock right away.
Very ingenious!!
