Are all you crafty people ready for another fun cross promotional week between Scor-Pal and Simple Stories? Me too! I get to help kick it off this time around. Check out my tutorial on the Scor-Pal blog for my main project. Just below, you can see a little tiny peek at what I have on the company blog. Don't forget to see what the Simple Stories Designers have created for you.
Since you are here, take a look at another project I made with the Simple Stories Documented Collection. I made a Luminaria following the tutorial found on Splitcoaststampers.
For this project, you will need:
- One 5 1/2" x 10 3/8" piece of card stock or patterned paper
- Four 2 3/8" x 3 7/8" pieces of transparency, acetate or vellum
- Die cutting tool
- paper snips
- Embellishments, as desired
Place the 5 1/2" side of the patterned paper against the top fence and score at 1 1/2".
Burnish all of your folds.
Cut out the small rectangle on the bottom right hand side of the paper, as shown below.
Cut on the 2 1/2", 5" and 7 1/2" score lines up to the 1 1/2" horizontal score lines. I like to trim mine on a bit of an angle.
Die cut windows into each panel. By the way, the patterned paper I chose, Damask/Flourish, had a grid pattern on the back.
Line the edges of each panel with Scor-Tape.
Remove the backing from the adhesive and adhere the transparency. I used the Simple Stories Documented Transparency Photo Overlays for my windows.
Line the 3/8" tab with Scor-Tape.
Remove the backing from the adhesive and attach the sides for form a basic box shape.
Place two strips of Scor-Tape on the outside of two opposite tabs and attach them as shown below.
Remove backing from the remaining three strips of Scor-Tape and adhere another tab down.
Place one strip of Scor-Tape on the inside of the remaining tab.
Remove the backing from the adhesive and finish the bottom of the box. Embellish as desired.
I used a scalloped border punch to create the narrow scalloped edges at top and bottom with some matching Simple Stories Documented Designer Card Stock. Then I added some Documented Fundamental Card Stock Stickers and a Documented Expression Card Stock Sticker. I sandwiched some gold cording between two star stickers to create a fun embellishment. Finally, you can light up your luminaria with a battery operated tea light.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed the tutorial. Be sure to stop by the Scor-Pal blog and the Simple Stories blog for more amazing projects all week long.
