Instructables Quilling Contest and More!

There must be something in the water... months passed with no paper craft contest sightings and then all of the sudden I heard about three last week! So this post is a little round up in case you would like to check them out...

A quilling contest is underway on Instructables.com that has lots of prizes provided by the Silhouette company  - 19, in fact, including a custom stamp maker, a Cameo electronic cutting machine, dies, etc. You have plenty of time to make something fabulous and present it as an Instructable; the contest end date is not until July 18.

Instructables Quilling Contest

Read all of the details right here and happy quilling.

Over at AllFreeHolidayCrafts, a Father's Day comment contest is underway through June 17. The site editors selected Karla Lim's popular origami lettering DAD pop-up card that she shared as a guest post here at All Things Paper a few years back as one of the entries.


If you like, check out the contest and vote for your favorite project. If Karla's card should happen to win, she will receive an Amazon gift card and you will be eligible to win a Natural Wonders Color Art adult coloring book and colored pencils just for voting via a comment.

And while I'm mentioning the AllFreeHolidayCrafts, allow me to also give a shout out to AllFreePaperCrafts.


I enjoy receiving the AFPC newsletter as new quilling links are often included in their What's Hot in the paper crafting world list. The staff works hard to gather tutorials on topics such as paper flower making, home decor paper crafts, printables, paper toys, card making and more that are presented as free themed e-books. Here is the quilling e-book that contains links to 40+ projects.


Lastly, I was contacted by an intriguing new-to-me site and television station called Be Makeful (currently in beta mode) that celebrates makers and their creations. Each week a Makeful challenge is featured and community makers are invited to submit projects that fit the theme - either their own (new or old) or ones they admire - that will be voted upon the following week. (Rest assured the original maker is always credited.) I was notified that Karla Lim's DAD pop-up card (I told you it's a popular one!) was selected by the site to be included as an entry in this week's Father's Day challenge. You are welcome to join in the fun and become a community member; just like all of the sites mentioned in this post, it's free.

  2. Patricia, thanks for the link. I've had the pleasure of seeing one of Li Hongbo's sculptures in person in a paper exhibit at the Morris Museum - it was remarkable!
