[CONTEST] Win a Cardboard Safari Vince Skull

Thank you for participating. This contest is now closed.

We're happy to offer our readers the opportunity to win a skull from Cardboard Safari. "Cardboard Safari designs, manufactures and distributes home decor products worldwide using sustainable materials and state of the art manufacturing technologies. The tall tales and misadventures of my (owner Chris Jessee) woodsman cousin inspired the design of the first Cardboard Safari product, Bucky the deer trophy. Other trophy heads quickly followed as friends and customers made requests for their favorite animals. Our fun products inspire the soul and imagination of our customers at an affordable price." The folks at Cardboard Safari, are excited to participate in this Skull-A-Day giveaway by offering a Special Edition, "Vince", full-size human skull, to one lucky Skull-A-Day reader!





"Vince" is made of over 50 laser cut layers of recycled cardboard, a non-toxic, environmentally friendly product. Laser cutting makes for a precision fit and easy assembly using layered construction. Packaged flat for shipping; includes detailed instructions. There is one skull per package. This Special Edition includes a highly detail contour box. You read that right...there is assembly required and detailed instructions, because "Vince", is a fantastic 3D puzzle. This 3D skull puzzle is a great skull for teenagers to adults. Since cardboard is flammable, please keep the skull away from open flames and hot lights. Also, cardboard edges are sharp, since they are paper, so handle with care. "Vince" Measures: 6W x 6H x 8D inches

Puzzles are a great way to keep you busy on a leisurely day, and this unique one is sure to entertain you for hours. I normally put puzzles together at a house, but "Vince" deserves an adventure! To enter the contest, leave a comment below answering, where is the craziest place you would put your "Vince" skull together? I might put him together deep in the Paris, France catacombs. I think he would feel at home there.

[NOTE: If you are reading this on Facebook or Google+, be sure to leave your comment on this Skull-A-Day.com blog post if you want to be actually entered in this contest.]

Don't forget to include a way to contact you (either an e-mail in the post OR make sure your Blogger profile has a working e-mail link for you on it). Entries are only valid with this information.

You have until just Midnight Eastern Time Thursday, August 16th to enter so don't delay!

NOTE: Cardboard Safari will pay for USA shipping to the winner. Sorry international folks!

Of course you don't need to wait till the end of the contest to get your own Cardboard Safari creation. Visit their site to purchase one or more of their "Vince" Skulls available in two colors, or any of their wonderful recycled cardboard designs!

Vince would most definitely live in the Danger studio. My art house made up of all things skull and cross bone creativity.

Unknown said...

I'd take Vince to a very public place, a cafe with patio seating, and have coffee and put him together out in front of everyone, leaving them jealous that I not only got to put him together, but also got to take him home!

Evil said...

Vince would enjoy my company because I am awesome !!

Pugsley said...

I'll put him together in the lounge chair I'll be stuck in for about three months after foot surgery. I had the left done last year, so I am gathering much more to do after they cut the right.

kingofpayne said...

Zook said...

I would put him together. Alone. In the dark. With beer. And spiders. And I would put him together and we would no longer be alone...

I would put Vince together in my heart, where all things stay together even when they break apart in the real world. paxoceanus@gmail.com

kellybelly said...

I'd put him together at the office. Maybe he'd scare people away from bothering me...

Dr. M said...

I think I'd have a Vince construction party. Actually, this could be really good. Skull trivia...horror movies...pin the skull on the skele...some Skull Crusher cocktails.
A Skull-a-day memento-mori festravaganza!

Thanks as always for such cool giveaways.

anna k said...

We do a puzzle every year & i think this one would be quite some fun!!!

Goddess said...

Vince would be put together while I sit at my family's graveyard plot on Nov 2 as I sit and visit with all my family members. ^_~. Nothing like visiting with family and putting together a puzzle.

Goddess said...

Redwolfgoddess7@aim.com.

Oops it appears I forgot to put my contact info on my posting.

bin said...

Vince would love Tucson's All Souls Procession! He'd feel right at home.
Thanks!
heaphywest@gmail.com

love, Vineet said...

I would put Vince together on the international space station. Perhaps in front of one of those time lapse cameras so that you could see a cool time lapse of him being assembled and the background would be the glorious atmospheric changes of our planet.

Joe.Ouellet said...

First of all I have about 35-40 skull things at home that are actual human and animal skulls...I'd put Vince with all his "friends" at the tattoo shop where I work He would be a very awesome conversation piece there. At the shop we could assemble him as a group teamwork project and also to have some fun together!!

Vince would look awesome next to my husband's Yogi contemplating the world statue.

Jerry said...

Perhaps in the dark corner of my cell at the asylum.

Bearded Jon said...

If I had Vince I would take him to the Round House at the Don Sheldon amphitheater on Mt McKinley and assemble it there with a bunch of climbers.

Ann said...

i would put Vince together on my dining room table...because my twin sister's ashes are in an urn on a bookcase next to it..i think she'd enjoy watching!!!
no..i am not weird...she's there so she can be part of everything..nothing goes in or out without being seen from there..she spent 7 years alone in a nursing home in Texas with brain damage...i swore she'd never be alone again!

pupton said...

I would have him put together in my daughter's car! A perfect place for burial!

fivefeettall.com said...

I've yet to meet a puzzle that could stump me. I would like to see Vince try!

chucktriplett said...

Really Cool and beautiful!

The Introvert said...

I think a room in the Winchester Mystery House would be a great place to put Vince together. (Provided that there was enough light in the chosen space) :)
nsrhoads@yahoo.com

SKULLUXE said...

I think I would put "Vince" together one piece at a time as a reward for each new skull paiting or drawing I completed. Finish a painting... add a piece, doodle a skull... add a piece... until finished.

MeezerCatMom said...

I would assemble Vince with my husband (also named Vince) in the back of my 1977 Cadillac Hearse. My son, Steven, would also help with the process. We'd love to give Vince his new home! *Alianalways@aol.com*

whislerrt said...

I would assemble the skull deep within the womb of the nanny from The Muppet Babies under the guidance of her watchful eyes that gaze from beyond the frame of my conscious.

zyg0na said...

I would put him together at Calvary Cemetery in Youngstown, Ohio. Generations of my family are there back to when we first came to the State. Brings a whole new meaning to “Family Game night”.

Bridget said...

i, not unlike you, would want to put vince together in a place where he would be comfortable, only my choice would the sedlec ossuary which is outside of prague in Kutna Hora...that place has a special resonance to me because I'm Czech and there's a decent chance I have relatives who make up the decor (at least i certainly hope it's the case).

bridget.mcgraw@gmail.com

Bridget said...

Either that or I'd take him to a show at Hollywood Forever. Next weekend they are showing Sleepaway Camp!

Bridget.mcgraw@gmail.com

Mr.Sutton said...

I would put Vince together hiding under a ShamWow!

BadMammaJamma said...

I would put it together with my 5 year old daughter who is fascinated with the human body!

Adam Wilburn said...

It is more about who than where. Definitely put together with my kids. I would live it for my collection and even more special to have them help.

HEH said...

It's quite obvious - Vince needs to be placed near a box of bandages. Surely there will be cardboard paper cuts!

b13 said...

Vince would sit on my mantle... Watching me watching him.

Hard_Skull said...

Awesome! Would look great on my desk.

BarklessDog said...

I might build him in a box.
I might build him with a fox.
I might build him here or there.
I might build him anywhere.
But, I guess that I am likely able
to build him at the kitchen table...

I would assemble Vince in the childrens room of my local public library, while my grandchildren played.

gwaley said...

I've been afraid to post, because I truly do not feel worthy of Vince.

gwaley@gmail.com

I'm not worthy.

MedicalArtMofo said...

Love this!! I'd take him for a drink atop the Hancock building in Chicago where fellow patrons could help me assemble him.

genaphur said...

Perhaps I could take Vince to the Sac Horror Film Festival and let all the ghouls help me put his cranium back together.

ribola said...

it wouldn't be the first skull or cardboard safari item i have. Vince would be at home in my studio with his friends and other inspirations to me.

Brian Shutak said...

firegrl said...

I would put him together as a competitive family sport. To make it interesting all family members participating will only be able to use their left hand and/or tongue during assembly.

join me vince

queenshaboo said...

At the Sedlec ossuary in Kutna Hora http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sedlec_Ossuary
I've always wanted to visit ever since I saw the excellent short on Sedlec by Jan Svanmajer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-c4kmWJ0dd8

queenshaboo said...

*Svankmajer* Apologies for the misspelling.

queenshaboo said...

I see someone has already chosen Sedlec (I didn't want to read all the comments until I posted in case it influenced my answer but unfortunately this did not prevent a duplication d'oh!)so I'd like to change my answer to the Wellness Skull http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/wellness-skull. I suspect it may have an adverse effect on the cardboard material however the question did ask for "the craziest" place to assemble the puzzle...

Diane said...

I'll take him to Skull Cave on Mackinac Island. There's a container there where visitors add a note about their visit to the spot; I can write that I built a skull there. bintie@gmail.com

Amy said...

I would put Vince together in a haunted Civil War cemetery.

rksoup said...

I would put him in the kitchen cupboard to scare my wife in the morning

Robert Fletcher said...

I would construct Vince at my desk in my dark and crowded library room, lit by one light, to join my collection of other skulls.

Carina said...

I would test the validity of the "A" my daughter just got in her Human Anatomy class, by having her display her talents on Vince.
So glad I did not miss an opportunity in this give away.

Erin said...

Oh, in the middle of the bed with the throw pillows, maybe in the guest room when company was coming.

E_B_A said...

I would assemble Vince using only my teeth, blindfolded and riding a stag across an open plain. We would speed into oblivion, breathing with the quickened pace of creatures set with purpose and design. I'd probably be high on some kind of magical powder given to me by a crude shaman a few days prior. There would be visions of fire and more skulls to guide me with their faint, unintelligible pigeon voices cackling a thrall of ancient and forgotten native Gods.

Or I'd just use an X-acto, a file, patience, soda, all scored by some Aphex Twin in the background.

Still not sure yet.

LucieMarie said...

I would put Vince together in the Church I attend & I am pretty sure I could our Pastoral Staff to help. ;)

Dwan Allen said...

I would assemble Vince while watched The Dresden Files, in hopes of unleashing a warlock thats trapped inside the cardboard skull

I would love this for my MAN CAVE

I would absolutely put him together in Mexico city during the día de la muerta festival so that he could feel at home surrounded by his skully brethren :)

a2b2007a-a7b4-11e1-98d9-000bcdca4d7a said...

I would put it in the Winchester House. The one with all the doors thawt lead to nowhere. YAou would open a door and find a skull waiting, HA, Ha.

Kali said...

I would do it as a performance piece at my annual pumpkin carving contest and birthday celebration. While I piece a skull together bathed in orange light, viewers will no doubt follow what I'm doing and use their power tools to create the best skeletal jack-o-lanterns this side of the North.
