A Scor-Pal and Core'dinations Treat Box

I'm back with another Scor-Pal project.  This time, the Scor-Pal is joining forces with Core'dinations!!  Be ready to check out some amazing projects on both the Scor-Pal and Core'dinations blogs.  Today, I have prepared for you a Flat Backed Treat Box*.  You can fit a variety of small treats inside this little box. 
For this project, you will need:
  • One 7" x 9" piece of card stock
  • Scor-Pal
  • Scissors
  • Scor-Tape
  • Sand It Gadget
  • Corner Rounder
  • Additional card stock for stamped images
  • Stamps
  • Ink
  • Embellishments
To begin, place your card stock with the 9" side of the paper against the top fence of your Scor-Pal with your embossed pattern face down.  I used some Core'dinations Core Impression Modern Prints.  Specifically, I used the Leapfrog Chevron pattern.  Score at 1", 2", 3", 4" and 5".
Turn your card stock 90 degrees and align your 7" side with the top fence.  Score at 1/2", 3/4", 1 1/2", 5 1/2", 6 1/4" and 6 1/2".
Trim off the corner pieces as shown in the picture below.
Trim the tabs on 3" and 4" score lines up to the 1 1/2" score on either side.  These cuts are highlighted in red for you. 
Trim the edges of each tab at an angle to ensure a good fit.
Take your Sand It Gadget and sand over the embossed pattern on the top 4" by 4" section which will be the "flat back" on your box.  Sanding will reveal the cool ColorCore of this fabulous line!
Turn you box over and adhere your Scor-Tape between the 1" and 2" score lines. 
Next, you will burnish all the folds on your box.
Finally, remove the backing on your adhesive and assemble your box.  Fold each section in toward the flat back until you make the rectangular box at the base.  Fold in each of the short tabs.  Then fold in the longest tab to close off each end.
Embellish your treat box as desired.  Don't forget to fill it with fun little goodies.  This year, mine will hold holiday chap stick for my girlfriends
I hope your enjoyed today's tutorial, as much as I enjoyed creating it for you!
