Craft Challenge #53 - Terrific Tutorials - Due Aug 2 - Aug 8


08/09/10 - Vote now!  Scroll up to see the voting poll!

08/03/10 - The entry board is open!  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=449.0



  • One entry per person.
  • Start a new thread for your entry and give the subject of the thread a unique title, so voters can remember what it is at a glance when they vote.
  • If your project was inspired by something else you've seen someone create, please give credit.

We can't wait to see what you've all created!

This month we want to embrace the spirit of Craftster, a community where crafters can freely share ideas and inspiration.  A huge (and wonderful!) part of our community is the tutorials that are shared here.  So your challenge this month is to create a terrific tutorial for an awesome summer project!

What is an "awesome summer project"?  It is anything you personally consider 1) awesome and 2) a summer project!  For me, it would be a really unique and gorgeous swimsuit, a patio transformed into an amazing tiki bar, or a fresh fruit salad served from an intricately-carved watermelon sculpture complete with a bubbling juice fountain. Cheesy  Obviously an awesome summer project could mean something entirely different to you, though!  Let your creative freedom go wild!  Since this is the Terrific Tutorials challenge, please keep in mind that readers will be voting for your project based on your tutorial (photos and steps) and your completed project.

For this unique challenge, the requirements are bit more specific than usual, so be sure to read them very carefully:
  • Craft the project and create the tutorial during this challenge period (Jul 1 - Aug 8, 2010) only.  Projects and tutorials created before this timeframe will not be removed from the entry board, but they will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Your tutorial must consist of at least 5 photos and 5 steps.
  • Completed project photo(s) do not count toward your 5 tutorial photos.  So if you are making a very simple tutorial, get creative with your photos.  Perhaps you could share the step/photo of you gathering your supplies as one of your 5. Smiley

Rules:

  • Post your craft during the period of Aug 2 - Aug 8 2010. No sooner.  No later.  On Aug 2 there will be a special folder created for entries.
  • Voting will happen from Aug 9 - Aug 16 2010.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project (Although your entry can have multiple components to it).

Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, has never been posted on Craftster or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project.

Prizes:

At the end, I'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner will get...

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog

And this prize (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):

Any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

YAY!  Tutes a plenty Smiley  Yup, Craftsters really DO make some of the BEST tutes out there!!

I am not sure what kind of a tute I would make either, got some time to think and create though.  I'm sitting in my craft room right now, and as I looked around I got a few ideas....we'll see what comes of them!

How exciting!  I love to see all the tutorials on Craftster, that's what drew me here in the first place.  I still have the very first pattern I made with a Craftster tutorial!

Ooh, this is a terrific idea!  If I can get the fabric for it, I may do up one on a convertible dress/skirt/thingie that everyone seems confused about!  Ooh, the possibilities...
