Craft Challenge #57 - Chronicle Your Holiday! - Entries Due Dec 1 - Dec 5

Winner announced!  Congrats, allyourown!


12/06/10 - It's time to vote!  Scroll up to see the voting poll! Smiley

12/01/10 - The entry board is open!  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=456.0

Good luck! Smiley

To celebrate the release of Paper + Craft, a delightful book offering 25 unique paper projects, we are more than excited to create this challenge that actually uses a few of the downloadable templates that accompany the book!  We're challenging you to take one of the three templates below, and craft it with a bit of your own personal holiday flair.  Just as with the projects in the book, all you need to get started is paper, scissors, glue, and a dash of creativity!  Of course, you can add all sorts other materials as well! Smiley  

At minimum, you must use at least one of the templates below, somehow use paper in your project, and give it a holiday twist for this time of year (November/December).  You can choose any holiday from November or December -- religious, national, secular or even unofficial!  You must use a template in your project, but it doesn't have to be how the template was originally intended in the book.  Perhaps you want to use the template for the Mommy and Me Paper Shoes and make a paper Christmas art installation for your wall.  Maybe you want to use the template for the Keepsake Paper Box to make 102 paper boxes to build a table for your Thanksgiving feast.  Work your creative freedom and have fun with paper!
Here are the templates we've snagged for use in the challenge.  Click a photo below to download the printable, full-size template.  These are .pdf files, so you will need Adobe Reader to view and print them.  You can get Adobe Reader for free here.

The winner of this challenge will get a Chronicle Books prize pack from Chronicle's line of crafty books, as well as a selection from one of Craftster's shops!  

Rules: (Please note the dates are shorter for this challenge, so craft & enter accordingly!)

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Nov 1 - Dec 5 2010) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will not be removed from the entry board, but they will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Post your craft during the period of Dec 1 - Dec 5 2010.  No sooner.  No later.  On Dec 1 2010 there will be a special folder created for entries.
  • Voting will happen from Dec 6 - Dec 9 2010.
  • Enter only ONE project.  Your entry can have multiple components to it.


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


At the end, I'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner (US or non-US) will get:

(1) a crafty prize pack from Chronicle Books!
(2) their project in the Featured Projects area
(3) their project in the Craftster Blog
(4) and this prize from us at Craftster.org -- any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!
