I'm Giving Away a Winter Lace Cricut Cartridge!

 I have a super easy and fun challenge.  The rules are REALLY simple - I just want everyone to have fun and show off their work :)  Read below for details.  If you participate you can win.

Create beautiful gift packaging for the holidays. This is a give-a-way direct from me to you.   Please be respectful and follow the simple rules :)

I know we all have a lot of gifts to hand out, so I thought it would be nice to challenge ourselves to make them look their best. You can do traditional wrapping and then make your own custom tag & bow, create a box, decorate a bag, etc. Challenge yourself to do something a little fun and unique with your packaging.

Obviously this must be your original work.

It must be a new project created after this contest is posted.

You must use the linking tool down below this post to add your project for consideration before November 26th. I will have the Linky expire at midnight on the 25th – I'm in Mountain Time.

To actually win the cartridge you must be in the US. I am SO, SO sorry about this, but this time of year the post offices are pretty packed and I don't know anything about international shipping – so at this time I don't want to risk disappointing anyone. :( If you want to join in the contest just for fun please go ahead and use Mr. Linky to show off your work, and then in the space where you enter your name please put N/A in front of your name so I know it's not an official entry for the prize. Once again, I am very sorry to exclude anyone.

When the winner is announced and contacted, they will have 1 week to get back to me with their address, or I will select another winner.  If I can find an e-mail for you when I visit your project I will e-mail you, but if I can't you will have to contact me after I announce that you've won on this blog.

That is pretty much it for the requirements.

You do not have to be a follower.

You do not have to post about this contest on your blog – although I would GREATLY appreciate it if you are posting your entry if you mention the contest and include a link. It is also OK if you don't have a blog – just use some other means of linking your project like Photobucket or somewhere else that hosts photos.

The winner will be chosen at random using I don't want anyone to feel like their project isn't “good enough” to enter. Just have fun and making something with love and you'll be entered.

If you have any questions let me know.

I look forward to seeing everyone's wonderful creations!

Hey Amber, can we decorate a can or something like that, or do you want all paper? Thanks, Karen

Staying Crafty said...

Oh you can certainly decorate a can! Heck, I don't even care if ANY paper is used - as long as you're making something designed to hold a gift :)
