Craft Challenge #88 - Dollar Store Challenge Round 4 - Entries Due Jul 1 - 8

Winner Announced!

Our winner this month is... kcli!



Check out the winning entry here! Smiley



July 16 -- Last day 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 Jul 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 Jul 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.[/s



It's that time again!! Grin  Ahh, the crazy and random dollar store full of treasures! Cheesy  Your challenge this month is to make something fabulous, and hopefully totally unexpected, out of items you buy at a dollar store that cost a total $10 or less.

You can also use traditional craft supplies glue, thread, etc., but the main focal point of the project should be what you buy at the dollar store.

If you're not located in the U.S., you can spend the equivalent of $10 USD in your own currency.

Additional Rules and Details:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Jun 3 2013 - Jul 8 2013) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • On Jul 1 2013, there will be a special folder created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of Jul 1 to Jul 8 11:59:59 PDT 2013.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from Jul 9 - Jul 16 2013.
  • The winner will be officially announced on the first business Monday of the next month -- in our August 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!

I think I can do something for this one too!!!  There is something I made for a swap before and I would love to recreate it for myself, I could switch it up a bit too.  YAY!!  OH!  And can I still play if I won just a bit ago? Or should I sit out? btw, I haven't heard from anyone about that

Aww shucks this always makes me wish we had a dollar store! ;P. I guess I'll have to try and look through Pricebusters and maybe Marukai, but they're both more expensive. Boo! Smiley

I may need to go to the dollar store next week and scope out the aisle for goodies...

I never leave the dollar store without spending at least $20... so the $10 limit may be the biggest challenge of all.  Wink

Work decided to be jerks and make me work at the far away location for the past couple weeks. They make me take an hour lunch break and I don't know anyone there which would normally stink, but there's a dollar store across the street so that's where i've been spending my lunch breaks, I picked up something the other day that i really want to use for a project i just don't know what yet, hopefully inspiration will strike soon

Do them all and submit your favorite! That's what I'm doing... Came up with two ideas, so I have a back up plan if one fails.

I have never participated in the Dollar Store challenge before... So dumb question: Do we need to post our receipts for the dollar store items? I almost threw mine away, but figured I had better ask first!

Not dumb at all!  Great question.  No receipt post is required for this challenge.

I take it that there is no chronological restriction as to when we made our dollar store purchases, yes?  So could use things bought at the DS at anytime in the past OR the future, if I have that capability?

I will neither confirm nor deny my time travel capabilities.

Part of the challenge is to get out and shop the dollar stores.

No receipts are required, so we won't be able to verify.  We'll just trust you didn't use your time machines. Cheesy
