Tatted Chocolate Box ContestTo compete, you will need 1 empty chocolate box.
How you choose to empty it is entirely up to you. ツ
Or, if you're feeling super crafty, make your own box. Here is a link to a commercial site showing several different styles for inspiration. It can be big or small, any shape, whatever suits your fancy.
Please note, however, that hand-made boxes will not get preferential treatment over up-cycled chocolate boxes.
Tasteful entries that make me laugh will get preferential treatment. Please no nudity, zombie apocalypse or chocolate Jesus art.
(Alright, for all you Gleeks, the most tastefully decorated "grilled cheese-us" that includes 50% tatting will get an honorable mention. Apologies to tatters who have never seen the TV show GLEE.)
The RULES1. Decorate your chocolate box with tatting. You may also use decorative trims, ribbons, papers, fabrics, flowers, beads, beer labels, etc. But 50% of the decoration must be tatting.
Any theme. (honey, holidays, Elvis, spa day, knots, pets, wine, Jane Austin, shoes, chain mail, passion for tatting...) Let your imagination run wild.
2. Photograph your tatted chocolate box and leave a clickable link to the image, along with your name (screen name) and contact information in the comments of THIS POST. Comments left on other posts will not be considered.
3. Entries that do not include name and contact information will be disqualified.
4. International entries accepted!
5. Deadline to submit your entry is November 30, 2010. Winner to be announced December 7, 2010.
