Scor-Pal's All Things Bright and Beautiful "More Than One Score" Challenge Mid-Month Tutorial

We are flying through the month!  Here we are at the half-way point and I have the mid-month tutorial for the Scor-Pal "More Than Once Score" challenge.  Our theme is All Things Bright and Beautiful, so I worked in some paper that I think is beautiful and the color red.  The rest of the team made some amazing projects, so be sure to check them out on the Scor-Pal blog.  I'm hostessing this month and so I made this cute little gift box with a card-stand.
For this project, you will need: 
  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Mat
  • Scor-Tape
  • One 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base
  • One 6" x 6" piece of paper
  • One 3" x 3" piece of paper
  • craft knife
  • paper snips
  • stamp set
  • ink
  • patterned paper, as desired
  • embellishments, as desired
Place the 3"x 3" piece of paper (could be patterned paper) in the Scor-Pal. Score at 1/2" and 2 1/2". Rotate paper 90 degrees and score again at 1/2" and 2 1/2". Quick tip: Place the pattern you would like to see face down in the Scor-Pal.
Burnish the score lines.  Trim on the score lines to 1/2" on opposite sides of the square.  
Adhere Scor-Tape to the newly created 1/2" tabs on opposite sides of the square.
Remove adhesive backing from the tabs and fold in to create the gift box lid.
Place the 6"x 6" piece of paper (could be patterned paper) in the Scor-Pal. Score at 2" and 2". Rotate paper 90 degrees and score again at 2" and 2". 
Burnish the score lines.  Trim on the score lines to 2" on opposite sides of the square. 
Adhere Scor-Tape to the newly created 2" tabs on opposite sides of the square.
Remove adhesive backing from the tabs and fold in to create the gift box bottom.
Place Scor-Mat into the Scor-Pal.  Place 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base into the Scor-Pal. With a craft knife and ruler, trim out a 2" by 2" section. Cut down 2" from 2 1/2" and 4 1/2".  Cut from 2 1/2" to 4 1/2" on the 2" mark.
Embellish your gift box as desired and place into the card stand.
Give this tutorial a try or pick another project.  If you are low on ideas or are looking for inspiration, be sure to check out the Projects on the Scor-Pal website or our Pinterest board.

Scor-Pal November "More Than One Score" Challenge Mid-Month Tutorial

Wow, it's already mid-November and time for this month's tutorial. The theme for this month's Scor-Pal "more than one score" challenge is Special Gift Packaging.  I'm hostessing this month and I made berry box for holding any kind of gift.
 For this project you will need:

  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Tape
  • One 8" x 8" piece of patterned paper
  • Two 1/2" x 8" pieces of card stock
  • Paper snips
  • Leaf die 
  • Stamp set
  • Ink
  • Ribbon
  • Sponge dauber
  • Dimensional adhesive
Place the 8" by 8" piece of designer paper in the Scor-Pal.  Score at 2 1/2" and 5 1/2".  

Turn the patterned paper 180 degrees and score again at 2 1/2" and 5 1/2".
Burnish all of the score lines.
Trim away the four corner created by the score lines.
Line the edges of each side with Scor-Tape.
Place one 1/2" by 8" piece of card stock in the Scor-Pal with the 8" side against the fence.  Score at 3 7/8" and 7 3/4".  Repeat the process with the second piece of card stock.
Burnish the score lines.
Apply Scor-Tape to the 1/4" sections of the scored card stock.
 Remove adhesive backing and create the top band for the berry box.
Remove the adhesive backing from the sides of the patterned paper and adhere the band to the top of the sides, creating the berry box.
Embellish the berry box as desired.
Now fill the berry box with any gift you wish to give!
