Introduction: How to Enter the Pocket-Sized Contest

Making a great small project is a fun challenge. It's about working within constraints to see how much stuff you can fit into a little tin, or creating something small enough to carry around and easily show others.

Due to popular request, we're bringing back one of our favorite contests - the Pocket-Sized Contest!

Any entry that can fit in a pocket can be entered. Rule of thumb: if you have to describe the pocket the item would fit into, it's not pocket-sized. So those big baggy cargo pants pockets are out. Think small, palm-sized, and easily pocketable.

So show us something awesome and win a Leatherman Squirt P4-Pocket Multi-Tool with a custom laser-etching. You can add your name, a (very) short message, or even a little logo. We'll also be giving you an Instructables Robot t-shirt and some other goodies.

Check out last year's winners for inspiration. Now get creative, and think small!
