We're very excited to welcome Spellbinders as our prize contributor this month! Smiley  Spellbinders has long-inspired us with their amazing tools for cutting, crafting and creating.  This month, they're inspiring the challenge!

Your challenge this month is to craft a project that includes two requirements -- shape inspiration and cutting!  Your project can be any medium, technique, size or shape you desire, as long as it's obviously inspired by a particular shape and cutting is involved.  Maybe you'll craft a square felt alphabet book, a circular paper cut card or even a diamond-shaped shrink plastic pendant.  The possibilities are endless!  Here are some Craftster projects to inspire you this month:


Additional Rules and Details:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (May 6 2013 - Jun 10 2013) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • On Jun 3 2013, there will be a special folder created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of Jun 3 to Jun 10 11:59:59 PDT 2013.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from Jun 11 - Jun 18 2013.
  • The winner will be officially announced on the first business Monday of the next month -- in our July 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

That's, uh, pretty open ended there. Nice. I mean, I won't be able to spin a yarn for it but that's not the only craft I can do, ya know? Maybe I'll break away and do something new! NEW!

So, uhm, shapes.... are we talking only traditional geometric shapes, or are 'fancier' shapes, like chevrons, fleur de lis, etc. count?

I had an idea I wanted to make for something for myself, and the timing of this is perfect.  I am almost done my current swaps, so will work on it next week - and hopefully get some work on my garden too.  I love the prize pack offered for this!

Would, say, the shape of a stain on my worktable be acceptable as well?

Not going that route now, but I've done that before and might end up doing something similar...

There is something I'm planning to make for the Summer Nerd Games May Battle Royale (it's a craftalong)... can I enter that or does it have to be something JUST for this challenge?

I don't see a requirement of when the project should be crafted.  Is it valid for something we have already been working on and finish in June?  Should it be something crafted during that week?

Oops!  That bullet point is usually on there.  May 6 - Jun 10 is the crafting period.
