Butterfly Design Challenge

At about this time last year I was feverishly creating entries for the Annual AMACO Friendly Plastic Challenge. One of the categories was to create a butterfly from Friendly Plastic which would be displayed in the Holocaust Museum in Houston, Tx as part of a permanent installation. They are looking for 1.5 million handmade butterflies, one to represent each of the children who perished in the Holocaust. When I posted off my entries last year, I had no idea that my butterfly would win the category!

And so I want to encourage you to enter this year's challenge too! You never know, your butterfly might be judged the winning entry.

Entries close soon but it's not too late to enter. Entries must be postmarked by 18th November 2009 to be elligible so if you're in Australia or New Zealand it doesn't matter that it might take a week to get to AMACO, as long as it's postmarked no later than 18th November.

For some inspiration why not visit the The Art of Friendly Plastic blog where there is lots of eye candyto get you started or visit AMACO's website where there are even instructions to help you.

You can find the entry form here and more information about the other categories in the Challenge on the AMACO website. And if you're in Australia, you can get your supply of Friendly Plastic from Stamp Antics at Wynnum West in Qld (07 3393 3022).

Create away and good luck to you all.
