Are you junktastic? We think you are so show off your cast-off challenge submissions today!
I was careful to choose something that everyone could find. I just had to go to the trunk of my car for these.
Tip: Close your eyes, forget what they are and think only of what they can become.

Here we go kids, let's start with the rules. Yah, I know, I don't like rules either, but every contest must have them.


1. Flat cheese graters are the subject matter.

2. Use as few or as many as you like.

3. Use any other materials you need to craft your project. For example, feel free to take a trip to the hardware store, craft store, fabric store, or anywhere you need to go to complete your project ala junk.

4. Submit your project photo along with the total cost and the amount of time it took you to make it.

5. Post as many projects as you can crank out.

6. Please post by September 15, 2008.

7. The important part (so we know it's a contest entry:) at the bottom of this post, check out where it says "Did you make this? Submit yours to member junk." Click on the "Post your project photos" link. This way we'll know it's a contest entry!


That wasn't so bad, huh?

WINNER, WINNER, CHICKEN DINNER! (This is Kimberly's saying so blame her.)

1. Winner will be chosen by the JUNKMARKET Style team.

2. Winner will be selected on the following criteria:

  • Originality
  • Is it pretty and practical?
  • Time involved
  • Cash out of pocket



The winner will receive, via mail an original grater submission made by the JUNKMARKET team. Even if yours is better than ours you still have take it. Ha!

Good luck and let the games begin! I've been watching way too much of the Olympic Games.


Have fun,


Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
Post your project photos
