Make something using scraps and leftover materials that you've got on hand.

There's a difference between turning "Trash to Treasure" and using up scrap materials, however. The best projects for this challenge will showcase how actual scrap and leftover materials were used to create something new.

So whether it's wood, metal, fabric, electronic bits and pieces, or even leftover food . . . if your project is made from scraps, it's eligible!

This challenge is only open for two weeks, so get scrappy fast.

The Scraps Speed Challenge is closed.
