Free Advertising on The Crafty Tipster

The Crafty Tipster is a website that offers free and licensed patterns and project ideas for crafters of all skill levels. To keep the site interesting and to provide a wider array of crafts, we invite crafters to share their patterns and project ideas on our site. Crafters will be given full credit for the pattern or project with a short bio and link at the bottom of the page their pattern or project appears on. They will also be included on our Meet the Designers page which will include links to each of their projects appearing on The Crafty Tipster as well as a direct link to their own website or online shop. This is a great opportunity for Etsians and other shared site shop owners to promote their finished items and patterns for sale.

We do ask that all patterns and projects include complete instructions and a picture of the finished item. Pictures that further illustrate how to construct the item are also welcome. Pictures may be resized to fit available space and will also be used within the category(s) the item appears in as part of our menu structure.

All copyrights to the pattern or project and accompanying pictures will be retained by the designer with The Crafty Tipster having rights for their use. Please do not submit the same pattern or project to other websites as this can cause the search engines to inflict duplicate content penalties on all of the sites with the project, which will hurt the effectiveness of the advertising option The Crafty Tipster provides crafters.

If you do not see a category for the type of crafts that you make and are interested in becoming a Crafty Tipster, please let us know and we can create a new category to showcase your pattern or project.

All instructions must be complete and in English. Instructions must be clear and the project needs to be worth making - always keep in mind our sites are all family -friendly sites and we will maintain the same level of quality standards as we do on Crafty Tips. Should it be proven that any portion of the guest post is not owned by the advertiser and violates the copyrights of a third party, all other references to the site will be removed from both The Crafty Tipster and Crafty Tips and if applicable, no monies will be refunded.

Family friendly projects for adults and children are welcome as well as holiday and pet themed projects.
