Craft Challenge #67 – Sticky Situation - Due Oct 1 - 9, 2011

Winner Announced!

Congrats to jaimsey for her winning entry titled, "Screen Sirens"!

Check out jaimsey's full project thread here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=392425.0

It's time to VOTE!  Scroll up to see the voting poll.  You must be logged in to vote. Smiley
Vote now through October 19, 2011.

It's time to enter!

Post your entry as a NEW TOPIC here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=471.0

This month's challenge is inspired by a few fabulous suggestions we received on the Craft Challenge Themes idea board!  Special thanks to PuddinPants, Lee Funny, and GreenWhimsy for their ideas that inspired this challenge.

Your challenge this month is to create a project that features duct tape!  What is duct tape?  According to Wikipedia, duct tape is, "cloth- or scrim-backed pressure sensitive tape often sealed with polyethylene."  And luckily for us crafters, duct tape is now available in a wide variety of widths and funky colors!

Your project could be anything from a wearable item (pin?  purse?  homecoming dress?), to something as huge as a piece of furniture (duct tape couch, anyone?).  You decide what sort of sticky situation you want to create and get crafty!  Your project can use any brand, color or amount of duct tape.  You can also use other materials in your project, as long as the tape is obvious star of the show.

Craftsters have been using duct tape as crafting material for years!  Maybe you'll find some inspiration from their creations:

Neon spikes of duct tape bag
Bouquet of duct tape roses
Duct tape dress form
Bag of caution and duct tape
Duct tape wallets

Rules:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Sep 6 - Oct 9, 2011).  Projects created before this timeframe will not be removed from the entry board, but they will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Post your craft during the period of Oct 1 - Oct 9, 2011.  No sooner.  No later.  On Oct 1, 2011 there will be a special folder created for entries.
  • Voting will happen from Oct 13 - 19.
  • Enter only ONE project.  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. Smiley

Prizes:

At the end, I'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner (US or non-US) will get:

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) and a prize from us at Craftster.org -- any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

I was in a couple of office superstores and they had some awesome colors and patterns of duct tape as well as sheets. So check out those big retail office stores.

I love ALL tape (as anyone who has gotten a swap package from me can attest), so I have a nice collection of interesting duct tape....now....just what do I need/want in duct tape is the real question.....I'll be thinking about this one for sure Grin

I know this isn't supposed to go here, but the "Inspired By Nature" thread is locked to posting.  Does anyone know who won the Inspired by Nature challenge?  Is it posted somewhere and I'm just not finding it? I noticed on the poll that 2 people each got 17 votes (both very much deserving the votes received I should add!), but who actually won?   Smiley

All I know is that is not a rare thing in the challenges.  I'm not sure how long it takes to get it posted, but it does take some time it seems.

Great question!

The poll results are accurate in displaying the winner, or winnerS in this case! Smiley  It was an awesome tie, so both members are winners!

We officially announce and recognize them in the next newsletter (the first business Monday of the following month, so Oct 3), as well as on the blog and in the contest thread.

OOOH!  I just a line of duct tape that has colorful little skullies on it!  I think it's new for Halloween, so you might have to check back at your stores.  I don't want to plug the company, though, so you'll have to figure that one out on your own, hehe. Cheesy
