We’ve all made mistakes while crafting, and not a single person on this site is allowed to deny it! I’ve personally puff painted my kitchen table AND soccer uniform, melted a chunk of my bedroom carpet, and misspelled words on too many scrapbook pages to count. So, why not reward those who have royally goofed and are still willing to craft with a $100 CreateForLess shopping spree?
Tell us your messiest, most embarrassing, or funniest craft blooper story for your chance to win! Here’s the link:
It’s that time of year again. The time to embrace our bloopers and tell stories of past mistakes. Not only is this a chance to make each other laugh with our previous blunders, it’s a chance to win a $100 Gift Certificate at CreateForLess. Though these bloopers may provide us with laughs, deep down the humor comes with the understanding that we too, have been there. Let us know your biggest or best crafting bloop at the 2015 Craft Bloopers Drawing!
I’ll start with one of my own follies:
One day, returning from the art building at my school where I had been making a notebook using book binding, I went into my room and opened my backpack. To my surprise instead of a pen, I found a mess of rubber cement. I had failed to screw the lid on all the way and my full bottle of rubber cement had spilled all over the contents of my backpack. Luckily this was not the pocket with my textbooks and notes, but rather all of my crafts supplies, pens, and a now very sticky water bottle. I spent the next few hours attempting to do some damage control, but my xacto knife and backpack were never the same. Moral of the story, don’t mess around with rubber cement. I think I almost caused my roommate to pass out just from the fumes.
