Repeat Performance

Welcome to a new challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog! It's Sara Emily here, and I've named my challenge "Repeat Performance". Here's the brief:

 A popular New Year's resolution is to save money. I challenge you to save money (and the environment) by using at least one thing you would normally throw out on your vintage or shabby chic project. Please be sure to let us know what that one (or more) item is.

The winner will earn a chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date here at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team.

The guidelines for entering are simple; create a new vintage or shabby chic project following the challenge theme, link it below to your post (not just your blog) and also include a link back to this challenge in your post. You can combine our challenge with up to 10 challenges (including this one) to be in with a chance of winning. If you are entering through a public forum (such as Instagram) you'll need to include the words 'Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge'. Also, please be sure to turn off your Word Verification so our Design Team can leave comments on your blogs. Make sure you follow these rules as unfortunately, we have had to eliminate entrants from the prize draws in the past.

The Design Team has created some wonderful projects to get you started. To see how they have given their 'trash' a second life and to see all the details of their projects, just click on their blog name to be taken directly to their blog.

After you have checked out these amazing projects, we hope you will come on back and share your own 'Repeat Performance' projects with us using the link below. We can't wait to see what you make using your throw-aways! Happy crafting!


  1. Ok I totally mis read the challenge, I thought it was to re-make an old card we had done in the past, I missed that it meant to repurpose something that would otherwise be thrown away.k Please remove My #1 & #2 entries. I couldn't remove them myself. sorry

  2. Stunning designs by the DT!

    Thanks for the Challenge, Ladies!
