Got a flat? Don't toss that tube! Reuse it, and share your project in the Alchemy Goods Inner Tube Reuse Contest!

To enter the contest, just make a new Instructable that shows how you've reused a bicycle inner tube. You can use it whole or slice it up for parts, and make something practical or artistic; so long as you reuse an inner tube, the rest is up to you! 

Need inspiration? Alchemy Goods has found lots of great uses for inner tubes and other reused materials. They upcycle useless stuff to make some great bags, wallets, belts, and more. Share your inner tube reuse project, and you could win a Pike bag or an Urban bag, or other cool stuff from Alchemy Goods!

So go make something awesome with an inner tube. We can't wait to see what it is!

Multiple entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize. International entries are accepted.

The Alchemy Goods Inner Tube Reuse Contest is closed.
