Dollar Store Challenge Guest Judge

Welcome to week 4 of The CSI Project!

Our fabulous guest judge for the “Dollar Store Challenge” this week is Heather
Mann, the founder of
Dollar Store Crafts.

Heather’s site is a fantastic resource for all crafty gals who don’t like to spend a ton of money and LOVE to create clever innovative crafts from dollar store treasures. Heather is a lifelong crafter, screenwriter, and mother to three little boys.  She also runs CraftFail, a community blog devoted to sharing  not-so-successful crafting attempts. I LOVE this site…it makes me feel normal because…. honestly, I have more craft failures than I’d like to admit!! Here are just a few of my favorite projects she’s spotlighted at dollar store crafts. You can click on the picture to be taken directly to that post.

Ok……I must admit I saved the best for last. When I found this zipper cuff bracelet, I’m pretty sure I squealed with delight! As I mentioned the other day, I sort of have a “thing” for zippers lately. So you can only imagine my excitement when I found another fabuously chic way to use them!


Be sure and visit Dollar Store Crafts for more fun project inspiration. Thanks to Heather for being our guest judge this week…..we are soooo excited to have you!

If you haven’t linked up before, be sure and read the rules on our “How it Works” page. Don’t forget to link back to The CSI Project in your post or if you’re linking up an older project,  post our button on your sidebar for the week!

Get those dollar store projects ready to link up in the morning. The contest will open at 9AM {EST}. We are really looking forward to seeing what y’all come up with.

Now go forth and CRAFT!!!!

    Is it sad that I’m sitting here hitting refresh waiting for the linky to come up?
