You’re invited you to be a part of our first annual Ornament Exchange! This exchange is open to everyone who’d like to share their creative talents with others and in turn receive a piece of artwork from another artist.
Participating in the exchange is easy: First, you’ll create two ornaments. IMAGINE Crafts will match you up with a participant in your country (if possible), and you’ll mail one of your creations to your fellow artist.
You’ll submit your second ornament to IMAGINE Crafts to be displayed (space permitting) at the Winter 2014 CHA Show in Anaheim, CA. Show attendees will vote for their favorite ornament, and we will announce the top 5 winners on the IMAGINE Crafts blog after the CHA Show (mid January). The top 5 winners will receive a prize package of IMAGINE Crafts products debuting at the show.
How to Participate
Ornaments can be created for any holiday or celebration, including general home decor, and must include IMAGINE Crafts / Tsukineko products. Ornaments can be any shape or size and from any material you choose (paper, metal, etc.). You can create two of the same ornament or two different ornaments, whichever you prefer.
To sign up for the Ornament Exchange, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and mailing address by November 15th. If you would like to swap with an international participant please specify this in your email; by default we will try to keep the exchanges between people in the same country to keep shipping costs down for participants. Beginning November 20th, we will email participants mailing instructions for sending both ornaments.
All participants should mail both of their completed ornaments by November 30th, 2013. To be eligible for inclusion at CHA, enclose a supply list of what IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko products you used in making your ornament. You are not required to provide full instructions for creating your ornaments.
We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
