Announcing the It’s a Punderful Life Tea Towel Design Challenge Winners

SEP 27, 2018 updated Jun 2, 2021

Watch out, Marvel! There’s a new Iron Man in town and he’s ready to press out all your wrinkles. Ceciliamok‘s entry, Iron Man, in the It’s a Punderful Life Design Challenge had us rolling on the floor laughing and apparently we weren’t the only ones; Cecilia was crowned the champion pun-master by the Spoonflower community in this week’s challenge.

Equally as witty were designs be_grateful by michele_norris and Don’t Go Bacon My Heart, I Couldn’t if I Fried by red_raspberry_designs who took home second and third place respectively. Shop the entire top 10 at Spoonflower for a guaranteed giggle or skip the DIY and order a ready-made Linen Cotton Canvas tea towel (the perfect gift for the holidays) at Roostery.
