Contest: Make Art From Starbucks Junk
So what do I do with my stack of used cups and lids (rinsed for recycling!) and all the extra caffeine raging through my veins? Build a TIE-fighter, of course!
Wired is hosting a Starbucks art contest. The idea is to make something cool and interesting exclusively out of Starbucks junk (cups, stirrers, drink holders, etc). Tape, glue, and string are allowed. You might consider multiple coffee-runs, or just ask the manager to sell you a bunch.
As something resembling a prize, Wired will feature their favorites in an online slideshow. Fame and notoriety - it can all be yours! (Of course, we always recommend cross-posting on Instructables.)
To inspire you, Wired posted this incredible TIE Fighter, made by Wired photographer Dan Winters. I don't think a Star Wars theme is required, but it almost certainly helps.
Enter at Wired.
May the Force (and the nondairy creamer) be with you.
