All papercrafters are welcome to enter our challenges!
A brand new challenge starts at the beginning of every new month.
Your project entry can be anything papercraft related. Whether it be a card, scrapbook layout, project life, mixed media or even pretty planners. As long as you have created something with or using paper, your entry is permitted into our challenges.
To keep things operating smoothly & to keep things fair for everyone, there are a few rules for you to follow.
How To Play
To join in on the fun please post your project on your blog with a link back to our challenge blog. You can then use our linky tool to enter your project.
Please ensure you submit a brand new project that you have created AFTER or on the same date that the new challenge is announced. No backlinking to older project posts please.
Your entry must be a direct link to your project post & NOT to your general blog domain homepage.
You may enter up to three projects per challenge & combine our challenges with as many other challenge blogs as you like.
Entries will be deleted if the rules & challenge themes haven’t been followed.
RULES & GUIDELINES
The Challenge Rules Have Changed! – PLEASE READ
A few things have changed in regards to our rules & guidelines for our Papercraft Business challenges. So please take a moment to read through this.
Myself & the DT members have had a few chats over the last month & have decided to make things more focused on the challenge themes. Here’s how it’s going to work.
Normally, we have our themes as ‘Anything Goes with the option of a ‘Challenge Theme’.
Now, we are changing it to ‘Challenge Theme with the option of ‘Anything Goes’.
This means that it now becomes a ‘real’ challenge for you to create your entry projects using that specific challenge theme.
In all respect, the concept of a challenge is when you can exceed your comfort zone &/or capabilities. A challenge allows you to reach new heights, gain new skills & adopt extra knowledge.
Therefore, our new challenge concept may trigger or require you to try something new & different. This, in turn, will give your projects that ‘something extra’ that you may never have thought of or tried before.
So, our new challenge concept will provide the opportunity for our challenge participants who want to step up, get out of their comfort zone & expand their papercraft skills. But also, if you just want to play along & submit your projects with our Anything Goes option, you can.
How to be a Winner of the Challenge
Now that our challenge theme concept & rules have changed, it means that the ways of winning the challenge have changed a little too.
Our challenge winners will be mainly based & chosen according to the participants who created their challenge project entries around the challenge theme. Here’s how it will work.
Prize Winner – Will ONLY be chosen at random from the participants that followed the challenge theme.
Ultimate Designer – Will also ONLY be chosen from the participants that followed the challenge theme.
Top 5 – Will be chosen from ALL of the participants that entered the challenge who either followed the challenge theme or the Anything Goes option.
From this moment on, the Utimate Designer & Top 5 winners will be selected & chosen by our monthly rostered Design Team member. Each of the DT members will take their turn, each month, to select their choice of winners.
This means that EVERY challenge participant will have a higher chance at being selected as all of our DT members have different styles, techniques & designs that they love.
Remember though, the Prize Winner will still be picked at random from the participants that followed the challenge theme. So, if you really want to win the challenge prize, you MUST follow & adopt the challenge theme when designing your project entry.
That’s it. I hope you like our new challenge concept & will embrace the new changes.
All of us in the Papercraft Business Challenge Team want to do our best by rewarding & giving recognition to the participants who follow our challenge themes. These are the papercrafters that are going to try their hardest to step out of their comfort zone, to try something new & in turn, expand their papercraft skills.
We’re a papercraft challenge blog & that’s why you’re here, to challenge yourselves, right? So, let’s get to it 🙂

We will have one prize winner per challenge who will be randomly selected. The winner will be announced after the challenge ends & will win the nominated prize plus a winners blog badge.
