Craft Challenge #85 - Terrific Tutorials 2 - Entries Due Apr 1 - Apr 8

Winner Announced!

Our winner this month is... sheepBlue!



Her entry titled, "Screen Printing with Drawing Fluid and Screen Filler A How To at Home!" is a STELLAR tutorial for screen printing your own custom creations! Check out the winning entry here.



It's time to enter! The entry period is Apr 1 - 8, 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 Apr 8 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.

March is National Craft Month!  What better time to celebrate the awesome tutorials posted to Craftster?  This is a twist on our first Terrific Tutorials challenge.

This time, feel free to make a tutorial for any awesome project you desire!  You can use any components and materials you prefer.  Since this is the Terrific Tutorials challenge, please keep in mind that readers will be voting for your entry based on your helpful tutorial (photos and steps) and your awesome completed project.

For this unique challenge, the requirements are bit more specific than usual, so be sure to read them very carefully:
  • Craft the project and create the tutorial during this challenge period (March 4 - April 8, 2013) only.  Projects/tutorials created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll and moved to an appropriate board.
  • Your tutorial must consist of at least 5 photos and 5 steps.
  • Completed project photo(s) do not count toward your 5 tutorial photos.  So if you are making a very simple tutorial, get creative with your photos.  Perhaps you could share the step/photo of you gathering your supplies as one of your five required photos. Smiley

Additional Rules and Details:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Mar 4 2013 - April 8 2013) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • On Apr 1 2013, there will be a special folder created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of Apr 1 to Apr 8 11:59:59 PDT 2013.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from Apr 9 - Apr 16 2013.
  • The winner will be officially announced on the first business Monday of the next month -- in our May 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!

Great contest idea.

I'm teaching a sewing activity at my 9 year-old cousin's Girl Scout troop next week and am in the middle of writing a tutorial for them, so they can follow along with our project or read ahead to see how it works beforehand.  Is anyone interested in the kid-friendly version, or is the adult version that I'm writing for my blog more appropriate?  Or both? They're fairly similar; the kid's version has more pictures, and all of the sewing terms/ideas are written out in non-sewing terms.

Question - does the tutorial have to posted directly on Craftster, or can it be prepped elsewhere, and a link posted?  I have one almost ready, but it is on my blog, and I don't know how to transfer it in the whole to here - and it took a long time already.

Oxyxnox, you could probably directly copy/paste the text and would just need to redo the photos (ie re setup the link/hosting etc) I think.

Someone else might know better, but I would guess that that would work.

Yep, definitely has to be posted on Craftster.

I think kj has the right idea, too!  Just copy and paste.  Depending on your photo host, you might be able to just insert the photos directly here.  If they don't allow that, you could just upload them to us.

With blogger/blogspot I do it backwards, make my Craftster post and then copy and paste into my blog. It copies the pictures and the code and everything, super easy. Not sure how it does the code since it's going from bbcode to html, but it works! I copy it from the published view on Craftster, doesn't work if you hit "modify" and then try to copy the code.
