Scor-Pal's May More Than One Score Challenge - Floral Fantasy Mid-Month Tutorial

It's hard to believe just how fast time goes.  We are already at mid-month again!  So, I have the mid-month tutorial on the Faceted Vase for you.  Since this month's theme is Floral Fantasy, a vase seems only natural. I did pick up some paper flowers for my vase, as well.  The rest of the team has made some amazing projects so be sure to check out the Scor-Pal blog for pictures and links to their blogs.
For this project, you will need:

  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Tape
  • Scor-Tool
  • One 6" x 6" piece of card stock
  • Matching card stock scrap
  • Paper snips
  • Circle punch
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Seam binding
  • Mini glue dot


Place the card stock into the Scor-Pal against the top fence and score at 1".
Flip the card stock over and score at 1 1/2", 2", 2 1/2", 3", 3 1/2", 4", 4 1/2", 5", and 5 1/2".
Rotate the card stock 90 degrees so that the 1" scored section is along the top fence.  Score at 1", 2", 3", 4" and 5" stopping at the first score line.
With your pencil, make marks at 1 1/4", 1 3/4", 2 1/4", 2 3/4", 3 1/4", 3 3/4", 4 1/4", 4 3/4", 5 1/4" and 5 3/4".
Rotate the card stock 180 degrees, so that the 1" section is at the bottom of the paper.  Now begin to score the diagonal lines with your Scor-Tool to make the faceted look.  Begin by scoring from the 2" mark on the left hand side to the 1" mark on the bottom.  Do not score below the bottom 1" score line.  Continue scoring between two points that 1" greater than the first. For example, your second diagonal score line will be between the 3" mark on the left and the 2" mark on the bottom. A pattern will become evident.
Now score the diagonal score lines moving from right to left across the piece of card stock.  The first score will be between the 2" mark on the right hand side and the 5" mark on the bottom.  Do not score below the bottom 1" score line.  Continue scoring between two points at 1" intervals.  This time, your second diagonal score line will be between the 3" mark on the right and the 4" mark on the bottom. A pattern will become evident.
Trim out sections on the bottom inch of the card stock to create tabs for the base of the vase.  The first 1" square will be removed completely.  Next, use the pencil marks created at every 1/4" and 3/4" to trim the tabs.  For instance, you will trim from 1 1/4" up to the score line at 1" and then trim from 1 3/4" up to the score line at 2".
Next, trim out the five inward facing triangles made the diagonal score lines on the right hand side of the card stock.  This will create a less visible seam on your vase.
Next, burnish all of your score lines.
Apply Scor-Tape to the right edge of the card stock as shown.
Remove adhesive backing and secure the right side of the card stock to the left edge of the card stock, creating the tube shape of the vase.
Apply Scor-Tape to the inside of 4 of the 5 tabs.  
Remove adhesive backing and secure tabs in the shape of a pentagon.  Start by folding the tab without adhesive inside first.
To reinforce the bottom of the vase, punch a circle from matching card stock and secure it to the bottom.
With vase placed right side up, time a length of ribbon around the top of the vase and secure the knot with a mini glue dot.
Finally, fill your faceted vase with flowers of your choice. Weighting  the bottom of the vase will prevent tipping.  A few marbles or metal washers will work nicely. 
Give this tutorial a try or pick another project for this month's More Than One Score challenge.  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's May More Than One Score challenge - Floral Fantasy

Hello Crafty Friends! It's time again for another Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge. The theme for the month of May is Floral Fantasy and I am the hostess! So, you will want to be sure to check back here or the Scor-Pal blog at mid month for a tutorial on this month's project. My project today is a Faceted Chimney vase! Of course, I promptly filled that vase with some pretty purple paper flowers.
The vase was fun to make and did take a little bit of work, but I'm confident that anyone can make it. I did put some marbles in the bottom of the paper vase to counter the weight of the flowers.  It stands up nicely now.  Here's a close up of the vase, so that you can see the detail created from scoring and folding. Would you believe that I started with a 6" by 6" piece of card stock?
Won't you play along with this month's theme?  Flowers go with just about any sentiment that you need.  If you need some ideas or want to find some inspiration, you can check out  the Projects on the Scor-Pal website or our Pinterest board.  


Thanks for stopping by!

Scor-Pal's April More Than One Score - Texture

Hello Crafty Friends! It's time again for another Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge. The theme for the month of April is Texture.  The hostess for this month is Steph. We are welcoming two new design team members this month as well.  You will want to visit Nancy and Dawn!  Be sure to check back on the Scor-Pal blog at mid month for a tutorial on this month's project. My project today is an Easter Pyramid Box! 
Since this month's theme is texture and Easter is coming, this little idea came to mind.  I hunted around and found mostly dies and templates to make pyramid boxes like this.  Not me, I guessed at the dimensions I wanted and scored a square for the base (top of the carrot) of my box.  Then, I drew in my triangles and scored some flaps to adhere together.  

This makes a nice little box that you could fill with treats.  It would be easy to make a few of these guys for a center piece or as place holders.  Whatever you do, you will want to play along this month.
If you need some ideas or want to find some inspiration, you can check out  the Projects on the Scor-Pal website or our Pinterest board.

Scor-Pal's March More Than One Score - Soft and Subtle

Hello Crafty Friends! It's time again for another Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge. The theme for the month of March is Soft and Subtle.  The hostess for this month is Lois. Be sure to check back on the Scor-Pal blog at mid month for a tutorial on this month's project. My project today is a Pop Up Corner card! 
This is the view of my project all closed up.  It looks like a regular square card, right?  Get ready because here comes the surprise.  
When you open up the card, the insert unfolds to stabilize the card!  It's really easy and fun to create.  With Easter coming up next month, you could work ahead through this Soft and Subtle theme.  I hope that you will play along.  If you need some ideas or want to find some inspiration, you can check out  the Projects on the Scor-Pal website or our Pinterest board.

February Pinspired!

Hey there, crafty friends!  It's come around again to my turn to host a "Pinspired" post.  I hope you find this one fun and easy when you need a little bit of cute packaging.  Of course, it fits in with this month's More Than One Score challenge as the theme is Anything Goes.  There's a Design Team call this month too.  This is your chance to shine, if you have ever entertained the idea of joining a design team.

Without any further chatter, here is my Folded Tea Holder. I've also seen it called a Double Pocket Treat Holder.  When I saw these projects on Pinterest, I knew that I could put my Scor-Envi to use.
For this project, you will need:
  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Envi
  • One piece of 6" x 6" double-sided designer paper
  • Hole punch
  • 7" length of ribbon
  • Stamps
  • Ink
  • Card stock scraps for embellishment
  • Dimensional adhesive
Insert Scor-Envi into Scor-Pal.  Place 6" by 6" piece of designer paper into Scor-Pal with the top at  the 6" score-line with its right edge against the Scor-Envi. Be sure to line up the bottom with the 6" score line as well.  Score at 6".
Flip the designer paper over and line up top and bottom with 6" mark.  Again the right edge will be aligned with the Scor-Envi.  Score at 5 1/2" and at 6 1/2".
Flip the designer paper over and rotate 90 degrees.  Line up the top and bottom of the designer paper with the 6" mark.  The right edge will be aligned with the Scor-Envi.  Score at 4 1/2" and at 7 1/2".
Burnish all of your score lines.
Fold in the sides scored at 4 1/2" and 7 1/2".
Fold the top half down, covering up the sides.  This fold happens on the 6" score line.
Fold the front and back half up on the 5 1/2" and 6 1/2" score lines.  This creates a pocket on both sides and exposes the other pattern on the designer paper.
Punch a hole in the top, through both sides and secure with a ribbon. Embellish as desired.
Fill the front and back pockets with any treat.  Pictures here are single tea bags.  Ghiradelli Chocolate or other square chocolates would also work well for this treat holder.

I hope you try your hand at this fun little project.  Thanks for stopping by.

Details - Stamps: Lucky You (Verve), Teeny Tiny Words (SU); Paper: White, Bashful Blue, SU double-sided designer paper; Ink: London Fog, Tuxedo Black; Accessories: Scor-Pal, Scor-Envi, hold punch, Spellbinder Oval Nestabilities, Square punch, Copic Markers, grosgrain ribbon, stampin' dimensionals.

Hello Crafty Friends! It's time again for another Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge. The theme for the month of February is Anything Goes.  The hostess for this month is Patti. Be sure to check back on the Scor-Pal blog at mid month for a tutorial on this month's project. My project today is a sweet treat Valentine box! 
Here is my sweet treat Valentine box filled with chocolate truffles.  My box is 2" by 2" by 2" and fits about five of the truffles.  I have my box lid all decorated and propped up against the box.  This is such a simple box design that you could make it any size.
Here's a close up of the box top.  I embossed and edged a smaller panel to pop up on the lid.  I further embellished with a couple of die cut hearts from some fabulous DCWV Shimmer and Rose Gold papers.  I popped the hearts up from the embossed layer too.
Finally, you can see how my lid fits on the box and the fun washi tape that I used to further jazz up the lid.  I hope you will play along this month, as it's really special.  We are having a Design Team Call.  You can find the instructions on the Scor-Pal blogTry a new tutorial or a project that you have been meaning to try.  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's December More Than One Score challenge - Anything Goes Christmas

Hello Crafty Friends! It's time again for another Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge. The theme for the month of December is Christmas - Anything Goes.  The hostess for this month is Patti. Be sure to check back on the Scor-Pal blog at mid month for a tutorial on this month's project. My project today is a treat dispenser!
Here is my treat dispenser, all packaged up and ready to deliver.  It measures 6" x 2.5" x 2.5".  You fill the dispenser from the top.  The ribbon tab assists you in removing the lid.  This dispenser works good for small treats like spice drops, jelly beans and M & M's. You could easily modify the box to accommodate larger sized treats.  
This is a another great challenge and it's always a great time to play along with the Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge.
