Introduction: How to Enter the Homemade Holidays Contest

The holidays are here - it's time to make some awesome custom gifts, break out the funky decorations, send homemade cards!  It's been a tough year, so we want to know how you're making this holiday season magical.  Share your projects and ideas in our Homemade Holidays Contest, and win some fantastic prizes guaranteed to make the new year even more special!

We're giving away 10 Kymera Magic Wands from The Wand Company. This buttonless remote control is a merging of the future and the past in one wonderful device. There is a very limited quantity available. Even better, the Kymera Magic Wand was designed by our own KaptinScarlet, author of many excellent Instructables about how to make a medallion, a sword, and, of course, your own magic wand!

In addition to the wands, we're also giving away Shapeways.com gift certificates! Shapeways.com is a 3D printing service that will make your custom 3D designs in plastic or metal. It's magical stuff! Hardcore 3D modeling skills aren't required, though - Shapeways.com also has a Creator section where you can make your own custom cufflinks, glowing etched images, or lightpoems that feature text wrapping a round a cylinder.

So make something amazing and wonderful for the holidays and win a magical Kymera wand and something custom from Shapeways.com! We even have special prizes for best decoration and best card!
