1000+ Facebook Likes celebration contest

My page Pratvam Progs on facebook recently crossed 1000 likes. It was all so encouraging coz I had just returned back to crafting in february after my MDS exams got over.

Did some pretty good amount of work in the small time frame... A lot of orders and new products were launched in the same time.
As a token of love I am offering free shipping on products bought on my website www.pratvamprogs.com

When I won a Cute stamping bella set from Creativita and won the Hobby mela contest my mom wanted me to giveaway a gift too on my page... As we were thinking what it could be... Mom suddenly said 'Do a contest and whoever wins give them a prize'. So thus began the idea for the contest... I myself have entered into a lot of contests on various blogs... It quite fun and the feedback is really great!!!

So this will be the 1st contest that I will be hosting on the blog... Quite nervous I must say... when I posted on Fb regarding how many people would be interested, I got like 6 comments and 18 likes for the post within one hour.

As I have been quilling a lot lately the contest is bound to be paper related!!!
Have divided the contest into 2 categories.

1- Paper/Quilled Jewelry- Use paper crafting techniques to make earrings. The twist here is you will have to make the designs of the earrings first. I mean you need to get down to drawing the design and then make the earrings...and when you make your blogpost or if you enter from FB pls click 2 pictures, One pic with the sketch and one without the sketch.

Here is some inspiration and examples as to what I meant by drawing your designs. You don't need to be excellent at drawing... simple sketches will do :)

2- Typograhical quilling- In this category you can make quilled greeting card, quilled plaques, canvases,photoframes.... sky is the limit actually...The twist here again is that You will have to plan out atleast how you think the your final product will look. For quillography projects u can either design them on your PC or you can sketch them also...So again you will have to uplaod 2 pics to your blogpost or your FB album.
Few inspirations from my side!!!

Quilled card- This is an easel card with typographical work for the name!!!

Quilled canvas- this is a 4*4 inch canvas on which the work life has been quilled. The backside of the canvas has a magnet so it can be used as a fridge magnet

Quilled plaques- Name plaques or the personalised plaques!!!
