It just has to be made from a shoebox right - doesn't still have to look recognizably like a shoebox, right?

Correct!  It can still look like a shoebox when it's complete, but it's not a requirement.

One of my children wants to submit a craft along with mine own, is that allowed? like two submissions off my one account.

I just started a shoebox project yesterday! Phew - it's within the time constraints, although its now going to need to look a lot prettier to be entered for the competition... (getting out fabric now!) ... maybe I can make a matching item from the lid, because I only used the base.. A month to decide what to do with the lid Smiley

I'm feeling very inspired by the shoe-box loom... I like to see the box being re-used to create something pretty.. I think this will be my inspiration for the lid.

Ok just checking a few things - is it just one shoebox allowed ? And can I use other materials too - cardboard, fabric etc (sorry to be daft - first timer alert !!!)

Only one entry allowed per member.  If your child is 13 or over, they can have their own account, though! Smiley

If you'd like your project to include more than one shoebox, that's totally okay! Smiley  One shoebox is the minimum requirement.

Use whatever craft supplies, materials, etc. you'd like to create your project.

So excited to see your entry!

I'm sure you can get a free shoebox at any store that sells shoes, or ask a friend, or even take a sneaky peek in a recycling bin!
Mare was quite right. I went by a Payless today and they were more than happy to give me a shoe box. The offered me to take as many as I wanted. Smiley No excuses.  Smiley

Thanks ladies. Sweets said we could use more than one. LOL I like the idea of a mini house.
