A note on the Five Ways Feature

A lot of you are LOVING the Five-Ways feature idea and I'm not surprised - it's also my favourite!

Remember that when you apply for this special feature, you must provide a product that fits in with the nominated Five-Ways categories.

So, as per your info pack, we are looking for two Five-Ways features per chapter and I've listed them below...

Homewares – refurbishing a kitchen chair or an unusual lampshade/lightshade
D├ęcor – a clock or a message board
Textiles – a cushion or a fabric tote
Clothing – most creative use of a scarf or ways to dress up plain white shirt
Jewellery & Accessories – creative ways to utilise a brooch or creating jewellery/an accessory from paper
Childrendecorative flag bunting or a set of blocks
Papergoods – a greeting card or calendar
Food – a lunch table setting or food gift box/hamper
Collectibles – a keepsake book for families or a photo album

If your product is one of the above, you can submit it for the Five-Ways feature. If you're unsure about ideas for this feature and want to be involved, please email me and I can help.

Remember - the more OUT THERE and unique your Five-Ways idea, the more likely it is to be featured.

Also remember, you will need to have your Five-Ways how-to photographed in steps.

You may be ASKED to contribute a Five-Ways feature if we think one of your products or ideas is particularly fab. You are not at all obliged to submit if you don't want to, but we'll still ask!
