Original Melzy Creations wants to see your original purple creations! A symbol of good judgment, meditation, and most importantly, figs, we think purple represents us really well. We use it in our ingredients and all of our branding, but we want to see what you can do with it! Do you have a fig’n awesome recipe for purple plum pie? Maybe you’ve got a killer tutorial for a purple dinosaur costume, know how to construct a lifelike replica of a sea urchin, can build a robot that shoots violet laser beams from its eyes, or you’re just looking for an excuse to paint that sailboat you built last summer a nice shade of electric indigo. Whatever it is, we want to see it! Anything goes as long as it’s purple.

The contest will be open to step-by-step, photo, and video Instructables, with bonus points for those who incorporate figs into their project. It doesn’t matter whether your work is old or new, as long as it’s yours to share with the world. Go ahead and get started, we can’t wait to see what creations you come up with!
