Contest UPDATE: Congrats go out to winner Jiuliana Tello!!!!


Our winner described her project as this:   


The name of my entry is : Crayon Car Holder.. I did it because my son always leaves his crayon in different places, and then he cannot find them.. I decided to make something funny for him. Now he can keep all his stuff in just one place, and he can move it wherever he wants.

Jiuliana used recycled water bottles and cans along with Glue Arts Adhesive Squares to make this adorable holder for her sons’ pencils and crayons!!  We’ll be sharing Jiuliana’s full step by step tutorial  this weekend along with other projects that caught our eye as well!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to participate and Recycle, Reuse and Repurpose!
