2019 Scrap Busting Challenge

You know you need this! So join the fun and make something beautiful.

Feb 2019 Challenge Update: 
Don't forget that to be eligible for prizes you need to follow the guidelines for the 'Get Featured' part of this challenge. Your project photo needs to be emailed to me by Feb 5th. I will post our monthly Challenge post between the 10-15th of each month. KEEP busting those scrap piles!

Original Challenge Information:
You're being challenged to create one scrap busting project each month in 2019. Twelve months = 12 new creations. Here are a few helpful guidelines...

  1. Use whatever scraps you have on hand to create something new. That could include fabric, beads, paints, glitter, threads and fibers, craft supplies, paper, etc., etc.
  2. It can be a practical or artistic project - or both. It can be a gift item or something you've created for yourself.
  3. The project doesn't need to be large or time consuming. Just create something new from scraps you already have.
  4. To join this challenge - just comment below
I'll be featuring my projects monthly and would love to include some of yours, as well. Want to join me? Make sure you have commented on this post. Then, just send me a project photo and the following information to by the 5th of the month. (Example: You should send me January's project information no later than February 5th. And the same for each month thereafter.)
