Their are 5 weeks in May. So for the monthly you need to make 5 Counterfeit Kits. Pick 5 brand name kits and to the best of your ability copy the real kit. Their are other rules that apply:
1. Take pictures through out the process of making the kit. And post them together with the finished kit.
2. Make a handmade embellishment.
3. Make a picture or video tutorial of something you have handmade.
4. Make a front cover to describe your kit as if you were selling it.

This is a huge undertaking so I am making the points extreme...
