Craft Challenge #73 - Spring Cleaning - Entries Due Apr 2 - Apr 9

Winner Announced!

Our winning entry was created by flutterbysee!

 Her entry titled, Galaxy Dress, is an amaazzzing transformation from a dress shes had tucked away in a drawer for 15 years!
Check out her winning entry here.



04/12/12 -- It's time to vote!

Scroll up to see the voting poll.  You must be logged in to vote.



04/02/12 -- It's time to enter!

To post your entry, please click NEW TOPIC on this board! Smiley  
Entries must be posted by Apr 9 11:59:59 PDT 2012

If you are a new member, and cannot post images yet, please just post a direct link to your image(s) in your post.  A friendly neighborhood Moderator will come along and update your post to embed the image(s) for you.



This year, astronomical spring begins Tuesday, March 20, 2012.  So for your challenge this month, it's your mission to get cleaning and sorting!  Find at least one unused item in a drawer of your home and repurpose and revamp it into something useable and awesome.  Instead of sending an item to waste, this is a great opportunity to revamp it into something fabulous!

Your main item must be an unused item from a drawer in your home, but you can use other supplies and objects in your project.  In your entry post, you must include at least one before and after photo.

Good luck and happy crafting!

Rules:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Mar 5 2012 - Apr 9 2012) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • On Apr 2 2012 there will be a special folder created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of Apr 2 to Apr 9 11:59:59 PDT 2012.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from Apr 10 - Apr 17 2012.
  • Enter only ONE project.  Your entry can have multiple components to it.
  • If cheating of any sort is detected, the said entry and votes will be disqualified.

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!

And it must be from a drawer?  See I have this grotty chair that I saved from the top of a news paper pile at the recycling center I used to work at.  I don't think I can get it into a drawer though....and if I could, if would not work any more as a chair I think Grin

Wonderful challenge idea! Always feel compelled to find uses for things instead of just throwing them out.

Brilliant! Too bad I don't have any drawers in my house, how about I use a set of drawers for this project and make something of them?

Your item must be from a drawer in your home. Smiley  Definitely no chairs for this challenge.  Put your thinking caps on and I'm sure you'll come up with something!  Just in the drawer in my kitchen, I have a cork screw, a few bottle caps and an old TV remote, all which we no longer use.

And it must be from a drawer?  See I have this grotty chair that I saved from the top of a news paper pile at the recycling center I used to work at.  I don't think I can get it into a drawer though....and if I could, if would not work any more as a chair I think Grin

Nothing in drawers at all?  Even thinking of dresser drawers, bathroom drawers or maybe office desk drawers?  Think beyond traditional craft items and I bet you'll find something!  An old t-shirt in a dresser drawer, an empty container in a bathroom drawer or maybe an old notepad in a desk drawer.
