  4. Click the "Post" button in blue at the bottom right.

How to Enter (Google+)

I'll provide more detailed steps for Google+ because fewer users are familiar with it:

  1. On your Google+ page find a sharing module that appears like so:
  2. Select the "Link" icon.
  3. In the field labeled "Attach:" add the link
  4. You must remember to include the hashtag and your thoughts on the cartridge.  Without the hashtag we will not be able to track your post, so include #craftdirecthomefortheholidays
  5. Choose share, the green button on the bottom left.

Check Back Tuesday for the Announcement of the Winners

The contest closes Monday night at 11:59 pm ET. Be sure to share a link on both social networks to double your chance of winning. If you don't win, stay tuned. We will have plenty more opportunities with our giveaways in celebration of National Craft Month. Check out the amazing CGull totes. Happy creating!
