The winning project will be shared on the homepage and through our Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and other outlets.

Fame + Fortune Are Up For Grabs!

Grand Prize: $250 and a DIY x Whimseybox Designer contract

Runners Up: All of the top 10 semi-finalist projects and designers will be featured on

Deadline: July 31st and 11:59pm MST (No time travel will be permitted, sorry!)

How to Enter:

  1. Submit your project to during the contest period. (To learn more about how to submit a project to craftgawker, read their FAQ here.)
  2. Tag it with whimseybox1 before you submit to craftgawker.
  3. You may enter as many unique projects as you like during the contest period.
  4. Share your project on your blog or through social media. The 10 project entries the the most “favorites” on craftgawker at the end of the contest period will be semi-finalists.

How to Win:

At the end of the contest period the 10 projects tagged with whimseybox1 that receive the most “favorites” will be reviewed by a panel of judges at Whimseybox who will select the winning project. Projects will be judged on design, originality and Whimseybox fitness (the ability for a project to be made into a kit that can be packaged and shipped to a customer).

Additional Information: Use your creativity! We love unusual materials and original ideas, but it’s good to keep in mind that we’ll need to be able to get a lot of them to turn your project into a kit, so one-of-a-kind/heirloom/highly valuable items aren’t a good fit for a Whimseybox DIY kit. Also, very large items (such as furniture) or hazardous items (such as spray paint) cannot be easily shipped so consider that as well.
