July Sunglasses Design Contest - Giveaway

{Download and Print the template HERE)

Hello friends! We are so so so excited that it's July because we have been planning a super secret contest that starts TODAY! (I know I said I was going to take a break from the internet today, but since THIS was published this morning, it has been kind of impossible!)

We are starting a contest // Giveaway that is going to blow the top off of any other contest and there are so many ways to enter, it is unbelievable! The best news, you get to be the architect of your giveaway prize! The mastermind! The creator and birth mother! Here's how you do it!

Download and print the above image from our Flickr and start designing the sunglasses of your dreams! We don't care how you do it! Be creative with the materials, cut and glue images from magazine, find photos of celebrity sunglasses, sew plush sunglasses, draw, paint, digital designs, bake sunglasses cupcakes for all we care, just have a blast! Incorporate wood/nature/summer! You can email us at{at}gmail{dot}com with images, descriptions and your contact information before JULY 14th!

The best part! YOU, the people, get to vote on your favorite sunglasses designs! So not only do the entries below count, but the vote you get will decide the fate of this giveaway! All entries must be in by July 14th at 11:59pm. We will post all of the entries and you can vote for only one week. At the end of that week, we will announce the winner. The winning design will be made/posted for all to see and you, the lucky winner will get a pair of your very own! These sunglasses will be one of a kind, never duplicated, never copied!

The winner not only receives their designed sunglasses come to life, but this incredible needlepoint hoop wall hanging from The Merriweather Council!! The photos don't do it justice, it is gorgeous!
A custom sunglasses drawstring bag made in our studio!

Plus, MORE PRIZES to be announced later this week! It is going to be a month long celebration of summer, and you're invited! But wait! I mentioned more ways to up the chance that you win!

  6. The more modern reflective coatings on Mirror Sunglasses usually have several layers making them more durable and less likely to become scratched. While these sunglasses may be more expensive, you often get what you pay for when purchasing sunglasses.
