Valentine's Day is almost here, so we're having a speed contest to celebrate.
Show us something lovely and special, and win some custom chocolate Robot candy or Instructables gear!
There are many people who want to express their feelings for another, but don't know how to do it without buying something expensive. These people need your help!
They might just get a Valentine's Day card and call it a day, but we all know that something handmade, something truly from the heart, means so much more. So share a Valentine-themed Instructable with the rest of the world and help others make the day special.
As a special Valentine's Day prize, we'll be giving away handmade candies featuring the Instructables Robot, cast from high-quality chocolate. The Ratings, Pageviews, and Random winners will also receive a t-shirt and the acrylic positives that were used to make the chocolate mold so you can make Robot chocolates of your own!
You have until February 24, 2008 11:59 pm PST to enter the contest. Since Valentine's Day is a week away and a few people have already posted Valentine-themed Instructables, all entries posted February 1, 2008 are eligible.
Since this is a short contest we're letting the audience judge!
Find the entries here and rate your favorite projects so we know what you like. Vote for as few or as many as you like - it's up to you. Only positive votes will count in this contest! We're not including ballot stuffing or negative votes, so please exercise good sportsmanship.
We'll judge based on the standings at noon PST on Thursday, February 28, 2008 so everyone will have time to check out and vote on even the latest entries. Results will be posted shortly thereafter.
