Time for Tapir Begins

This year's fund-raising project is entitled 'Time for Tapirs'. It'll be a clock - a clock with a Tapir theme - a clock with a difference.

One of the challenges in a fund-raising project is to keep the costs low. The more you spend on materials, the less goes to the charity. Logical right? But who wants an object that looks cheap. So, I'm going to start with a confectionery box (they're really inexpensive and ubiquitous). Now I've got thirty boxes and thirty clock parts, so the rest of the project will be about the look and feel of the box itself. I can imagine there will be some simple printing involved as well as, hopefully, some paper magic. Note that the clock shown above is just a base ..... lots to do yet!
