Winners announced! See who won here!
The holidays are coming!
It's the time to visit the family, give gifts, and prepare for a brand new year.
Instead of asking "what to buy" this year, you should be asking "what to make" for your friends and loved ones. Homemade presents can be truly unique, and avoid the icky question of how much to spend on each person.
Use your skills and imagination to make some wonderful things -- we want to see them!
That's why we're teaming up with our friends from CRAFT magazine to host the Homemade Holidays 2007 Contest.
Enter your crafty and creative item, and win cool stuff from Instructables and CRAFT!
PrizesFirst Prize -- Three (3) winners
CRAFT Boxed Gift Set, an Instructables robot T-shirt, a CRAFT T-shirt, and a laser-cut Robot holiday ornament.
Second Prize -- Five (5) winners
One-year subscription to CRAFT Magazine, an Instructables robot T-shirt, a CRAFT T-shirt, and a laser-cut Robot holiday ornament.
Third Prize -- Ten (10) winners

CRAFT: Volume 5, a CRAFT T-shirt, and a laser-cut Robot holiday ornament.
