Magazine Insert Creativity Contest

People are so creative. We find new ways to use old things every day – pop bottles, books, envelopes, clipboards.

Pop bottle becomes backyard sprinkler
Book spines made into bookmarks  
Turn junk mail envelopes into handmade book
New life for clipboards

Inspired by the Index Card a Day (ICAD) found on Daisy Yellow’s blog, I think we can do the same with the magazine inserts. We just have to be more creative since we’re not starting with a blank slate, so to speak.

What are some ways you’ve used these super-lightweight postcards?
Well, put your thinking cap on and get out your creativity toolbox for your chance to win a $25 gift card to Jet Pens!
Start with a magazine insert card and create a piece of art. No cards, you say? Easy enough- just visit your local library or bookstore and shake a few magazines. Soon you will have plenty!
There are two options for entry: Blog Post or Mail. There will only be one winner.
Blog Post with Photos- If you have a blog, you can post photos of your creation with a link back to this original post. If your entry is complicated, please include instructions for those of us who may want to try your idea on our own. Email me at Jackie at lettersandjournals dot com with a link to your blog.
Mail your entry to Jackie Flaherty, Letters & Journals, PO Box 120052, St. Paul, MN 55112. Be sure to include your contact information as well as any instructions.
