It’s back! Paper Crafts is proud to announce that its hugely popular gallery challenge Gallery Idol is back for season three. Last year after eight fierce weeks of competition, we named Nancy Cienfuegos from Orlando, Florida our season two winner. Now we’re ready to induct the next paper crafter extraordinaire! Are you ready to win?

Based on Fox’s hit TV show American Idol, our version will have readers submitting themed projects every week in hopes of becoming the grand prize winner. And just like our TV counterpart, online viewers will vote each week with only the best contestants with the best submissions moving forward in the competition to the next round.

The best part…the perks! Every time a contestant makes it through to the next round, she/he will each receive a fabulous prize package! Details on our exclusive sponsors and prizes will come at a later date. Remember folks, anything worth its weight is worth the wait!

Will you be our next Gallery Idol?
