It's time for another fun Scor-Pal project. This time I will be making a Picnic Caddy. This has so many potential uses that I am quite excited about it. I can see this caddy personalized for parties, dolled up for Easter or filled with school supplies for a teacher or student heading back to school. The possibilities are really endless.
For this project, you will need:
- one 12" x 12" piece of card stock
- four 4 3/4" x 3 1/4" pieces of card stock
- four 4 5/8" x 3 1/8" pieces of card stock
- four 4 1/2" x 3" pieces of patterned paper
- two 8 1/2" x 5" pieces of card stock
- two 7 1/2" x 3 7/16" pieces of card stock
- two 2 1/2" x 1/2" pieces of patterned paper
- paper snips
- corner rounder
- Oval shaped die or punch
To begin, place your 12"x 12' piece of card stock in your Scor-Pal and score 3 1/2" and 8 1/2".
Rotate your card stock 90 degrees and score again at 3 1/2" and 8 1/2".
Cut on the score lines from the outer edge in to the first score line, as shown below.Scor-Tape on all four corner tabs of the what will become our picnic caddy base.
Fancy Pants Designs Hopscotch Collection and this particular piece is called Charming.
Scor-Pal with your 8 1/2" side along the top fence. Score at 2 1/2". Repeat with a second piece of 8 1/2" x 5" card stock.
Round the top corners (those furthest away from your score line) of both pieces of the 8 1/2" x 5" card stock. Die cut or punch an oval shape under the rounded corners. To get my ovals in the exact same spot, I used removable adhesive to keep my card stock pieces aligned perfectly and then ran them through my die cutting machine with an oval die. Scor-Tape to adhere the two pieces together above the score line. Line the bottom of the two flaps with Scor-Tape.
Scor-Tape backing and carefully adhere this piece inside your picnic caddy base. You have now created your handle for your caddy.
Scor-Pal and score at 1/2". Turn you paper 180 degrees and score at 1/2" again. Repeat this on the next 7 1/2" x 3 7/16" piece of card stock.
With the 7 1/2" side up against the top fence, score at 1/2", 3 1/2", 4" and 7". Repeat this on the next 7 1/2" x 3 7/16" piece of card stock.
Scor-Tape to tabs as shown. Repeat this on the next 7 1/2" x 3 7/16" piece of card stock.
Scor-Tape and assemble small box to be used as an insert in the picnic caddy. Repeat this on the next 7 1/2" x 3 7/16" piece of card stock.
Scor-Tape around the remaining three sides of the inserts.
Scor-Tape and carefully adhere inserts into the picnic caddy base, creating four separate compartments.
I loaded my caddy with paper napkins and plastic cutlery. To test out my caddy, I stuffed it full (not shown here) and the caddy turns out to be quite strong!
Thanks for reading along through today's tutorial. Have a wonderful day!
