Paper Fun! (#goastrobrights)

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Astrobrights Papers by Neenah Paper for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

When I got the offer to write about Astrobrights Paper I went to their facebook page Astrobrights on Facebook to check out their  "Give a Brighter Year" sweepstakes because that's what they wanted me to write about. I immediately signed up for the sweepstakes because who wouldn't love to get $30,000 for their local school and $500 dollars for themselves? It was easy to enter, just a basic entry form. Just go to their "Give a Brighter Year" sweepstakes page, like them, and fill out the form to enter the drawing. If I win I know my local school will benefit from great supplies to use for their projects and I will benefit too!

After entering the sweepstakes I clicked over to the Make Something Bright to see what that was about. I found out that it is a contest where you enter your projects made out of paper and the prizes are $100, $200, $300, and $400 depending on what category you are entering. The $100 category is already closed. The $200 category is currently open and the project is to make a flower out of paper. The $300 category starts on August 13 and the project is to make something fun out of paper. The $400 contest starts August 27 and the project is to express yourself in some way using astrobright paper.
Looking at these contests really inspired me to get creative and make things out of paper. I decided that for sure I am entering the $200 and $300 categories. So I did some research and found some great ideas for paper flowers and paper toys. You can visit my Crafts Worth Making pinterest board to see some of my inspiration. I ended up making 4 things, 3 paper flower creations and 1 fun creation and it was so much fun!

   I call this one Bright Cherry Blossoms 

This one is my Sunburst Flower

Here are my Stained Glass Flowers

And here are my Dino Buddies

So those are my Make Something Bright Projects. I had so much fun making them! I will probably post tutorials for them soon. What are you going to make?
