A woman from Rednal, in Birmingham, beat a host of bloggers across the UK to be named the 2019 Gorilla Craft Blogger.
International adhesive, tape and sealant brand Gorilla launched the Craft Blogger’s Competition to find their resident craft blogger, giving the winner an international platform to showcase their creativity and crafting skills.
From 100’s of entries, the brand whittled down the submissions to a shortlist of 12 who went on to create craft projects, using a range of Gorilla products.
The final projects – which included a teacup bird feeder, a chandelier, bookends, tea light holders and more – were showcased across Gorilla’s social media platforms, before being presented to a panel of Gorilla judges, who selected the final winner.
Competition winner Corrina Vanes created a jewellery box and a handy toothbrush holder using just Gorilla products.
Commenting on the winning projects, Gorilla Assistant PR and Digital Manager, Gemma Shepherdson, said: “Corrina creates extremely unique projects and her work demonstrates that she really does think outside the box when it comes to craft.
“The judges were impressed with the standard of Corrina’s photography and the feel and tone of her blog, ‘Confarreo Creates’. We felt that her projects will appeal to crafters who are just starting out and who are looking to replicate the projects themselves.
“We’re looking forward to showcasing the exciting projects that Corrina has planned this year.”
Ms Vanes said: “I am so excited to have been chosen as a winner and to have the opportunity to be a craft blogger for Gorilla as it’s a great brand with such a good range of products.
“I’m looking forward to showing how crafters can use them to make beautiful items in their homes, using techniques which will be suitable for any skill level.”
Corrina Vanes wins a year’s supply of Gorilla Glue products and is now the 2019 Gorilla Glue resident Craft Blogger.
