NonTeam Treasury Challenge #4

This challenge is now closed. The winning treasury will be posted on Tuesday.
The new Inspiration Item, and the next Challenge will be posted on Thursday.

A creative challenge open to all members of Etsy!
Create a treasury around the Inspiration Item. Win the Challenge and the Inspiration Item for the next Challenge will be something of yours! Who knows how many treasuries will be created with your item!

Everyone is welcome to take part in this Challenge. There's no team to join.

Palimpsestic will be judging the Challenge this week. It's totally up to her as to what she's looking for. Make the best treasury you can and just maybe one of your items will be featured in our next Challenge!

Please read the guidelines carefully before creating your treasury.

Our Inspiration Item is.....
Personalized Mini Pennant Banner from Vintage Maps from palimpsestic

Create one treasury using the Inspiration Item above as one item in your treasury. Fill the rest of the treasury with any other items on etsy. Follow etsy's treasury guidelines. Do not include any of your own items. Make your treasury awesome. Add descriptive tags to your treasury and give it a creative title.

Use etsy's Merchandising Desk ideas when possible. Some possible tags from November's Merchandising Desk - gift guide, gifts for..., gifts under $..., gifts for traveler, travel, personalized gifts, home decor, paper goods, geometric shapes, paper cuts, HGTV gifts, autumn colors, rich earth tones, brown, camel, red, blue, black.

You have three days - until Sunday, November 7th, (noon - eastern) to create your treasury.

Requirements for Participation in this Challenge...
1. Read the guidelines. (Remember - only one entry per person)

2. Include the Inspiration Item in any of the first 12 spots (not as an alternate).

3. Tag your treasury with nonteamchallenge 4. (separated by a space) Be sure that it shows up in this search by the deadline for judging. (If your treasury doesn't show up there, it won't be judged.)

4. Be sure to include a link to the blog or this post in your treasury description. If it doesn't fit into the description, you may leave it in the first comment. http://treasurychallengenonteam.blogspot.com/2010/11/nonteam-treasury-challenge-4.html

5. Make sure that if you win, you'll be available to judge the next week's Challenge - and report the winning treasury by the next Monday.

6. Support other participants - View/Comment/Click on at least a few other treasuries in the Challenge.

OH MY! This one is going to be fantastic! I can see a lot of FP worthy treasuries already!

amanda j said...

I swore up and down that I was taking a treasury BREAK this week; that I was going to mill about a bit, just enjoy what other people did. Darn you palimpsestic for being so awfully inspirational!!! ;D

I agree with nomadcraftsetc--can't wait to see what people come up with and won't be surprised to see a few front pages!
