The winner of each category walks away with $200. The “best in show” winner from these categories earns another $1,000!

— Scroll down upload photo(s) of your craft project, along with a few details (no tutorial required) in the category of your choice.
— Enter as many craft projects in whatever categories you want – you can also nominate someone else’s work.

When you vote on any of the entries (by clicking on the heart underneath the photo) you’re also entered to win one of the gift packs from Red Heart Yarns, We R Memory Keepers and Blick Art Materials and iLoveToCreate. Each is worth hundreds of dollars.
