August Reuse and Rethink Challenge: Binder Clips!

August Reuse and Rethink Challenge: Binder Clips!

Every month, we challenge our versatile creative community to rethink materials commonly found in the ACR center. For Back to School month, we challenge you to rethink the unthinkable: binder clips! These are a staple in any office or classroom, but are likely only used for one purpose. How can you reuse a binder outside of its intended use? Send us your best creations for your chance to win!



Here are some examples from our Pinterest board:



Guidelines for entry:
  • Materials must be reused
  • The submissions will be judged on three qualities: creativity, workmanship, & use of reused materials
  • Submissions must be made on or before the deadline

When you’ve completed your creation, please provide at least 2 photos of your art piece, your contact info and a short description of materials used. Submissions can be emailed to


One winner will be selected and receive a $10 Gift Card to ACR. They will also be announced on our social media, along with photos of their creation! 

Deadline to enter: Tuesday, August 31st, 2021
Want to enter but need a space to work on your creation? Join us for a ReThink Tank!

No appointment or signup necessary, just drop in and stay for as long as you’d like! Participation is free but donations are much appreciated. Come ReThink with us!
