SAF 2015: Unconventional Materials Challenge

By August 29, 2015Stamp-a-faire

Some of you may have already caught this little clip, but just a few weeks ago (Season 14, Episode 2) the Project Runway designers were challenged to raid a Hallmark store and incorporate cards and paper into their designs as their unconventional materials challenge!  

 

So appropriate for kicking off YOUR unconventional materials challenge, which is coming up next!

8-unconventional-materials-challenge

Just like the popular television show, you are challenged to incorporate unconventional materials into a card.  Visit your local hardware store and purchase unconventional materials with a $10 budget*. Get really creative and try to make it "difficult" for people to tell that the unconventional materials were even used on your project! Be sure to take a photo of your receipt next to your new supplies to add to your blog post before you dig in to start creating!  You may integrate any basic paper crafting supplies or tools as well.  

*You can use hardware supplies from your stash as well, as long as their retail value does not exceed your $10 budget!

Here are the results of the team's hardware store shopping adventures!  Be sure to click through to each of the designer's blogs because they have more details about their projects  and the unconventional materials they used!  You won't want to miss this!
