Welcome to the May Arts / Helmar Craft Challenge!  

That’s right, May Arts Ribbon & Helmar have teamed up to bring you the September Craft Challenge!   We hope you all are as excited about this one as we are!

For this challenge, you will not only get 4 different kinds of ribbon, but also Helmar’s 450 Quick Dry adhesive to create a craft project with.  And this time around we want you to color that ribbon!  Ink it, mist it, paint it…whatever you like!  Just make sure you get some color in there.   Now that is enough crafty goodness to make this our most exciting challenge yet!


The goods you have to work with:


Your choice of up to 4 of the ribbons shown above in the following amounts:

  • 10 flowers
  • 1 yard of suede leaves
  • 2 yards – mini pom poms, canvas, net ribbon

Here are the details:

  • We will provide you the following to work with:
    1.  Your choice of up to 4 of the ribbons shown above
    2. Helmar’s 450 Quick Dry
  • You will have approximately one month to complete a craft project.  Any craft design will be admissible, as long as you use 450 Quick Dry, each ribbon we provide you with & that you color the ribbon.   You are limited only by your own imagination.   **Your idea must first be approved by myself and Erika at Helmar**
  • The number of participants is limited to 25 people.  The participants will not be selected on a first come first serve basis, but based upon your idea.  So take your time before you send in your email, as you will have about a week to submit it.

  • 10 additional entries will win a prize of either 1 full spool of ribbon or 1 bottle of 450 Quick Dry

    When I worked at the schools, I would pick a day about 6 wks. after school started to call in a personal day.  Off I would go to a craft store and have fun shopping.  Shop, eat lunch, and maybe go to another craft store.  I had so much fun!
