21  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenges / [FINISHED] Craft Challenge #113 - Dollar Store Challenge Round 5 on: April 04, 2016 08:25:52 AM
Craft Challenge #113 - Dollar Store Challenge Round 5 - Entries Due May 2 - 12

Winner Announced!

Congrats to our winning entry by RaraAvis!



Check out the full project thread for this amazing project, and the challenge blog as well!





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 (Apr 4 2016 - May 12 2016) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • On May 2 2016, there will be a special board created for entries.  Post your entry on that specified entry board during the period of May 2 to May 12 11:59:59 PDT 2016.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from May 23 - May 27 2016.
  • The winner will be officially announced on the first business Monday of the next month, in our June 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 will get...

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) and this Craftster prize (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):
Their choice of any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

It's time to get out those mixing bowls and get crafting!  Your challenge this month is to make and decorate a gingerbread house.  Any type of house is permitted (cottage, castle, etc.) as long as it has walls and a roof of gingerbread.  Your entry must be made of edible parts, but it's not limited to sweets only.  The only non-edible parts allowed are a base, lighting and/or electrical components.  No gingerbread house kits for this challenge.  No size restraints -- miniature to life-size houses are tasty and welcome for this challenge.

Rules:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Dec 8 2015 - Jan 12 2016) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project (Although your entry can have multiple components to it).
  • Post your craft during the period of Dec 8 2015 - Jan 12 2016. No sooner.  No later.  On Jan 1, there will be a special folder created for entries.  We will reply with the folder/board link here on this thread.
  • Voting will happen from Jan 18 - Jan 24 2016.
  • The winner will be officially announced on our first business Monday of the next month -- in our February 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.

  • It must be a costume you are making for this year (Halloween 2015), and not photos of a costume from past years.
  • If you are making a costume for someone else, and not for yourself to wear, it's okay enter it, but just remember that you can only have one entry in this contest.
  • If you are making a set of costumes for multiple people that all go together via a common theme, you can enter them together as one entry.

Rules:

  • Enter costumes crafted for Halloween 2015 only.  Projects created before this timeframe will not be removed from the entry board, but they will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project (Although your entry can have multiple components to it).
  • Post your craft during the period of Nov 2 - Nov 8 2015. No sooner.  No later.  On Nov 2, there will be a special folder created for entries.  We will reply with the folder/board link here on this thread.
  • Voting will happen from Nov 9 - Nov 16 2015.
