You must have the crafted items in your backpack to turn in the quest. Once you've created them, make sure you don't store, sell or destroy them. If you do, you can create a replacement, and then the quest should continue for you.
If you want the prize, you have to build the ladder rung by rung. There are no shortcuts.
