The Holidays are approaching, and what better way to celebrate than to hideaway in your workshop and make a gift for that someone special? 😉
We know many Maker Studio members are experienced woodworkers, but for this challenge you are tasked with mixing it up and creating a holiday gift with your Dremel tools using at least two different materials. You could incorporate metal, wood, glass, plastic, leather etc. to make your creation. Challenge yourself to create a mixed media project that you will then gift to a friend or family member during the holiday season.
Between October 22th and December 6th, dream up, design and create your gift using the submission form here.
Include a before and after photo of your gift as well as an in-progress photo or video
Tell us about your gift and how it was made.
Each submission must meet the following requirements:
Your gift must incorporate at least two (2) different materials: wood, metal, plastic, glass, leather etc. (Two different kinds of wood would NOT qualify in this challenge - if you're unsure, feel free to double check with one of our team members first)
Use at least one (1) Dremel tool in the creation of your project
Submit at least one (1) "before" / "before getting started" photo of your project (your pile of materials before getting started would be a good one)
Submit at least one (1) in-progress photo of your project (you might need to enlist an assistant)
Submit at least one (1) final photo of your project.
We still haven't figured out how to time travel from house to house yet, so we use these photos & videos as a way to verify that you have completed your project yourself within the Challenge period. (But if anyone has a lead on a magical sleigh with eight tiny reindeer... we've heard that that's one way to visit many houses in one night) 🎅
If you're feeling creative, (and generous!) feel free to submit as many gifts as you'd like.
Once all the projects are submitted, all members of the Dremel Maker Studio will have the opportunity to review the submissions and vote for their favorite projects. The due date for submissions is December 6th at midnight CST. Our team will review all of the submissions to make sure they meet the requirements, and then voting will run from December 10 to December 20th. We'll announce the winners right before Christmas!
What's in it for you? There are three grand prizes available in this Challenge:
1st Place: $250 e-gift card
2nd Place: $150 e-gift card
3rd Place: $100 e-gift card
Plus, everyone who casts a vote during the voting phase will be entered in a draw for one of two Dremel HSGP-01 Glue Pens. 🎁
Note: At this time, gift cards and prizes can only be sent to Maker Studio members in the United States and Canada.
