TPT Makeover Madness Challenge



On my way home from a long river weekend last Tuesday, I scrolled through my Instagram feed and saw photo after photo of stats with a TPT Seller Challenge headline.  Curious, I started investigating and realized that I wanted to join in.   Read more here.
By the time I signed up, there were over 900 TPT sellers signed up to participate in the 4 week challenge to make over our store and brand.  Challenge 1 was Makeover Madness, where sellers update old products and covers and make them look fresh and new.  I decided to start with my top seller, a short story unit on "The Most Dangerous Game."  Not only did I go through and update the resource, switching it from the original Word file to PPT, and then updating some material, I also updated the cover, changing the portrait orientation to a crisp, square shape and cleaned up the graphics and fonts.I definitely like the new cover better.
  



Since I liked the look of the square covers so much than the smaller-looking vertical or horizontal ones, I started changing covers.  I've gotten through the first 4 top sellers, but plan to do more.















What do you think?  I'd love to see your makeovers, too!

    I agree, I think the square covers look awesome. That's definitely something I'd love to do with all my products if I could find the time! I think your new product looks great, I love the real photo that you used. Also, I am a bit obsessed with your blog design :)

  2. Hi Melissa,
    I agree with Paige, the square covers look amazing! They really make it pop and the change in the font made a huge difference. Awesome job!
