Recycle, Reuse & Repurpose!
Three words you hear more and more often each day as we as a society strive to find new ways to breathe life into items and objects that in the past were headed to the trash.
There's a new, renewed trend with the growth in the crafting industry to try to find a new way to give life back to clothing, household decor, toys, books and yes....trash.
We're excited to kick off National Craft Month by announcing our first GlueArts Recycle, Reuse & Repurpose Challenge!
GlueArts invites crafters to celebrate National Craft Month by submitting an original crafted project using recycled, repurposed or reusable items and at least one GlueArts product for a chance to win a prize package worth $250.
Projects must contain at least one recycled, repurposed or reusable item and at least one GlueArts product (see products at www.gluearts.com). Submissions must include a photo and a description of project. Contestants should include a photo on the description page (contestant names should not appear on photos). Descriptions must include a materials list and how the GlueArts product(s) was used. Project photos must include the GlueArts product that was used.
All project photos and descriptions must be submitted by March 18 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All projects will be judged on originality and creative use of recycled item(s) and GlueArts adhesives. One winner will be chosen to receive an amazing gift basket of products from GlueArts, Hero Arts, Plaid, a Provocraft Cuttlebug and Westcott products, valued at more than $250.
Celebrity judges include Modern Surrealist, Marisa Pawelko (www.modernsurrealist.com), Plaid’s social media manager Amy Anderson (http://www.modpodgerocksblog.com/), Jenny Barnett Rohr founder of Craft Test Dummies (http://www.crafttestdummies.com/) and the Craft Mom and GlueArts social media manager Julia Sandvoss (www.thecraftmom.blogspot.com).The winning project will be announced on Monday, March 21 and will be featured on the GlueArts blog and website.
