But wait, there's more! Kollabora is giving away a $25 gift certificate to one of my readers so you too can try out one of their awesome DIY projects. Entering is easy - see below.
So what is Kollabora? I'm glad you asked! I was excited to learn more about their truly unique concept. Much more than a craft supplies retailer, Kollabora is a social platform for DIYers, bringing multiple crafting communities together to link up their projects and how-tos.
For many of Kollabora's DIY projects, you can learn about the crafter who contributed the project, get a step-by-step tutorial on how to make it yourself, and then purchase the exact supplies you need, all within a few clicks. How cool is that?
Kollabora's current focus is on fashion-forward sewing, knitting, and jewelry making projects. However they plan to expand to many more DIY communities, including home decor (which I am personally excited about!)
While I don't know how to knit or sew, there are plenty of achievable Kollabora projects that I would love to make. I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you:
Giant Cross Stitch Kits
A cross stitch anyone can do...and super chic too. I would love a whole wall of these!
One-Skein Finger Crochet Scarves
All you need is a skein of yarn and your fingers!
Paint Chip Necklace
I love all the color in this necklace!
