Craft Challenge #83 - Shoebox Makeover - Entries Due Feb 1 - Feb 10

Winner Announced!

Our winner this month is... Knickertwist!



Her entry titled, "Borrower's Box" is a lovely little creation where a happy borrower could surely live!

Check out her full project thread here.  Be sure to congratulate her on her thread! Smiley



It's Time to Vote!

Scroll up to see the voting poll.

You must be logged in to vote.  One vote per member.
If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.



It's Time to Enter!

The entry period is Feb 1 - 10, 2013.

To post your entry, please start a new topic for it on this board.  Click NEW TOPIC on this board to post your entry! Smiley

Entries must be posted by Feb 10 11:59:59 PDT 2013.

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.



Dioramas, toy boxes, organization and more!  Let's makeover some shoe boxes!  Your challenge this month is to bring new life to an old shoebox.  Any size shoebox is allowed, but it must be a shoebox (not a jewelry box, random shipping box, etc.).  You can use the box, the lid or both!  Decorate a shoebox.  Make a shoebox into a game.  Use a shoebox to create wall art.  Get creative!

Over the years, Craftster have shared lots of completed projects that may help inspire you.  Check them out!

Additional Rules and Details:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Jan 7 2013 - Feb 10 2013) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • On Feb 1 2013, there will be a special folder created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of Feb 1 to Feb 10 11:59:59 PDT 2013.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from Feb 11 - Feb 18 2013.
  • The winner will be officially announced on the first business Monday of the next month -- in our March newsletter, on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  We will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement, to get your prize package information.
  • Enter only ONE project.  Your entry can have multiple components to it.
  • If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable 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!

Oh my gosh!! How fun!! I remember making these in grade school and I always LOVED putting them together. I bet some of our talented mini house crafters will have some great entries!

I guess this would be a great excuse to go out and buy some new shoes, huh? You know, for the box. It's all about the box. Cheesy

This is an interesting idea. Around this time of year I am saving shoe boxes for tax records. Might snag one to see what ideas come to mind. Wink
