Scrap Buster Tutorial Contest Poll ~ Vote for Your Favorites!

on October 15 | in Contests & Giveaways | by | with 133 Comments

Well, the awesomeness of the Scrap Buster Tutorial Contest is coming to a close. We were stunned by the quality and quantity of fantastic new tutorials. Many, many people were writing a tutorial for the first time, which we think is really wonderful. Some people wrote tutorials that should be published. Some you’ll see again soon because we think they’d make fabulous Christmas gifts, so we’re going to remind you about them during next month’s Handmade Holidays. They are all great in one way or another, so it is practically impossible to choose winners. We did, however, say that we would give 3 people a $50 gift certificate to the shop, so we hope you’ll help us decide.

Below are two polls (we had too many submissions for just one.) You should vote for 4 in each poll, for a total of 8 votes. Judge the entries based on the originality of the design, the quality of the work, and the clarity of the instructions. We’ll keep this open through Thursday and announce the winners (or have a runoff) on Saturday. (Note that the poll results will not be visible.) You might want to scroll through all 114 entries before you start voting ;-). And don’t forget to hit both VOTE buttons!
