In honor of Cricut's new Cricut Explore machine, they're partnering with us to run our largest papercraft contest ever!

Paper is part of everyday life. From the birth certificates on the day we are born to the resumes we create when we interview for our first job. But paper doesn't have to be so constraining and boring.

We want to see what you can do with paper! Fold it, cut it, stretch it, wear it! It doesn't matter, as long as it's paper, you have a shot at winning the latest and greatest that Cricut has to offer.

Please keep in mind that instructables must contain your own original images and text to be eligible for entry into the contest.

Multiple entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize. Contest is open to entries from US, Canada [excluding Quebec], UK, China, Belgium, the Netherlands, Australia, Colombia, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, India, New Zealand, and Denmark. The Contest begins at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (PT), January 27, 2014. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, March 24, 2014.

The winner(s) will be solely responsible for complying with any and all applicable statutes, laws (including, without limitation, common law, if applicable), rules and regulations and for bearing any personal income tax, VAT, withholding taxes, customs duties, or other taxes, fees, insurance, surcharges or other costs relating to receiving, claiming or collecting any prize.
