I made this amazing clock starring "The Zapper!' using basic office materials and a clock I bought from Wal-Mart for $3.49.

Step 1: Materials

The materials you will need for this step include:

Wall Clock with removable face/hands
Glue (Optional)
Adobe Illustrator/Other Image Editing Program
Printer (Color Preferred)

&nbsp;Awesome Job! And thank you for providing the illustrator file. It would have taking me ages to do that. I'm going to modify it a little for my own taste if you don't mind. Great tutorial. will post an image when i'm done :)
Awesome!&nbsp;I'd really like to see it when you're done!<br />
&nbsp;I took the illustrator file. and sort of made my own :)<br /> <br />
LOLOL that's an amazing design! Very creative I never would have thought of that
These are fantastic instructions, thank you for taking the time (puns are all intended), I have a few questions: do you really mean Control+F for pasting? I have not tried that as I always use Control V. Also when you say I can edit the illustrator file to my liking - how? I use PS and Corel Painter but still don't understand how I can use your file as a basis. What I really want it the part with all the minute and hour spots marked so I can work with that templet by putting in my numbers or background - is that possible for you to supply?
When you use Adobe Illustrator, the command for copy is CTRL+C and you can also paste with CTRL+V. This is for the normal paste function. However, if you first copy with CTRL+C and then use CTRL+F to paste, it pastes a copy of the original object directly in front of the original. So if you want to mess with a copied object but you don't want to move it from its original location, you can use the CTRL+F function in order to paste it back into the original position. I've got the original Illustrator file uploaded onto this site but if you really want, I can export the file as a .jpg or something and send it to you via E-mail. Just tell me what you want marked in the file. If you want the minute/hour notches and the clock circle marked, I can send it to you in an E-Mail. Also tell me what the diameter of your clock is so that I can scale the circle to the correct size so that you don't get any loss in quality when you open up the image in Photoshop. Just send a reply or PM with your message to tell me what you need.
Will do, thank you.
Yes, when you are opening my file you are opening it as a PDF file which just shows the finished product as an image file. But what I meant is that if someone such as yourself is using Illustrator then you'd be able to edit it to your liking. You can only edit what's in the file (because Illustrator is a vector-based editing program) if you do it in Illustrator. But I can give you just the image of the blank clock with the notches for hours/minutes. Just message me with an E-mail address.
