Craft Challenge #84 - Book Worms - Entries Due Mar 1 - Mar 10

Winner Announced!

Our winner this month is... kcli!



Her entry titled, "My world…where a book comes alive," is an amazing creation where her book seemingly does come alive!

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 Mar 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 Mar 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.



Books, journals and book repurposing, oh my!  This month, your challenge is to repurpose a book in some way or create your own book from scratch.  Do you have a second-hand book that is beyond repair?  How about an old phone book tucked away in a drawer?  Always had an inkling to make a book purse or book safe from it?  This month is for you!  Have you always wanted to create a book from scratch?  This month is also for you!  You choose your project type and get creative!

This month, we're crafting based on Stifflersmom's challenge idea! Smiley  You can use other materials in your project, but your book should be the star of the show. Smiley  No need to limit yourself to traditional reading books, either -- all books are welcome in this challenge!  Needle books, recipe books, felt books, you name it.  Pick a book, any book!

Over the years, Craftster have shared lots of completed projects that may help inspire you.  Check them out!  
Book purse by Lille
Book shelf made from books by member McJulie-O
Oodles of teeny books from the One Tiny Book Swap!
Felt Name Book by member Plumpkin
"I Miss You" book by member twoeyedcyclops
Handmade coloring book by member autotrophic

Additional Rules and Details:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Feb 4 2013 - Mar 10 2013) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • On Mar 1 2013, there will be a special folder created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of Mar 1 to Mar 10 11:59:59 PDT 2013.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from Mar 11 - Mar 18 2013.
  • The winner will be officially announced on the first business Monday of the next month -- in our April 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, we'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!

Man, I wish I had more time.  I have a craft in mind, but I don't think I'll be able to fit it into my schedule this month!  I'm still tucking the idea away for later, though!
