Mid Challenge Tutorial

This fabulous project was from one of team members in our current challenge and we wanted for you to be able to create it yourself so we have the tutorial for you.

That's right!  We are in the middle of July and ready for the mid-month tutorial.  This month's Scor-Pal featured challenge is a "more than one score with a die cut" theme.    I'm hostessing and have made a fun slider box with die cuts on top and bottom.

Here's a picture of the slider box opened up just a bit so that you can see the box base.  The box measures 4" long by 2 3/4" wide by 1" deep.
For this project, you will need:
  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Tape
  • One 6 3/4" x 8" piece of card stock
  • One 4" x 8" piece of card stock
  • Paper snips
  • Top Note die cut
  • Additional dies for embellishing
  • Additional card stock for embellishing
  • Rhinestones for embellishing
  • Stamps
  • Ink
Place the 6 3/4" by 8" piece of card stock in the Scor-Pal with the 6 3/4" side along the fence.  Score at 1", 2", 4 3/4" and 5 3/4".
Turn card stock 90 degrees so that the 8" side is against the fence. Score at 1", 2", 6" and 7".
Trim away the three outer squares in each corner, as shown.
With paper snips, cut tabs on the 8" side of the card stock.  The picture below shows the tabs.
Burnish all of the score lines.
Adhere Scor-Tape to the outside of the box base.  Also, adhere Scor-Tape to the tabs as shown.
Remove adhesive backing and fold down the 6 3/4" sides.
Remove the adhesive backing and fold in the tabs on both sides
Remove the adhesive backing on the tabs and fold down the last two sides. Here is your box base.
Place the 4" x 8" piece of card stock in the Scor-Pal with the 8" side along the fence.  Score at 1", 3 3/4", 4 3/4" and 7 1/2".  
Burnish all of the scores.
Line the 1/2" tab on the back with Scor-Tape.
Wrap the 4" x 8" scored card stock around the box base.  This now becomes the cover that the base slides into.  
Use your die cuts to embellish your newly constructed slider box.
*Original tutorial modified to fit my own die cuts.  

Thanks for reading all the way through this tutorial and I hope you give this More Than One Score challenge a try!

While we are on the subject on Die Cuts, have you checked out Scor-Pals line of dies called Scor-Dies?
These are designed for use in Pocket Card projects but can so easily be used in so many paper crafting projects, in fact they would have been perfect for any of the ones featured below.!

Pinspired!

Each month a talented Design Team Member will choose a project on our Scor-Pal Pinterest board and get "Pinspired" by it!
They will update it, tweak it a little if they like, and share the tutorial here for you!

This month we have the super creative Toni


Hello crafty friends!  I'm here again with another Pinspired post for the Scor-Pal blog.  I found this pin for a washi tape storage box on the Scor-Pal Pinterest Board.  I got to thinking about the mess of washi tapes that I had sitting on my shelf and decided that practical was the way for me to go this month.
For this project, you will need:

  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Tape
  • One 6" x 12" piece of double-sided patterned paper
  • Paper snips
  • Ribbon and extra paper to embellish
Place the 6" x 12" piece of patterned paper with the 12" side along the fence.  Make sure the pattern that you want on the outside of the box is facing up. Score at 1" and 11".
Turn your patterned paper so that the 6" side of the paper is along the fence.  Score at 1", 2", 4" and 5".
Burnish all the folds and cut tabs on my 6 inches up to the score line.
Turn the paper over and line the second and fourth segments with Scor-tape from tab to tab. Remove adhesive backing and fold down.
Line the center tabs on both ends with Scor-tape. Remove adhesive backing and secure tabs on each side to create corners, and finally, your box. 
Embellish your box as desired.  I die cut and layered a  couple of stars and popped them up on the front of my box.  I also cut small slits in the front of the box and slide ribbon through it.
Voila!  A washi storage box to clean up my shelf.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Mid Challenge Tutorial - Patti

This fabulous project was from one of team members in our current challenge and we wanted for you to be able to create it yourself so we have the tutorial for you.


Hi there!

I'm back today with a reminder that we are halfway through the month of June. You still have time to join in the challenge on the Scor-Pal blog - just use some ribbon, lace, or trim, and 'More than one fold'!

I originally made this card for the monthly challenge using scraps on hand:



I'm back here today to show you how easy a gatefold card can be when you use your Scor-Pal!

You will start with an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of cardstock.
Place the long side at the top of your Scor-Pal, and score at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8".

Below, you can see the markings for a gatefold card, on the older Scor-Pal, the



Burnish score lines with Scoring Tool.  Cut a piece of white cardstock 4" x 5 1/4", and adhere to the inside center panel of your card, using Scor-Tape. Set aside.

Die cut or punch 2 sizes of your shape choice in coordinating colors. For this card, I used circles.
Die cut or punch 2 sizes of your shape choice in coordinating colors for sentiment. For this card, I used ovals.


Apply Scor-Tape to two 1 7/8" x 5 1/4" panels of patterned paper, and adhere to card front.


Add a little Scor-Tape to the larger circle to hold your ribbon in place.
Punch a hole, or slot in white panel for ribbon to slide through, and add Scor-Tape to the smaller circle.

Slip the ribbon through the slot, and adhere small circle to large circle.

Add Scor-Tape to just the left half or the large circle.

Adhere large circle to left side of card front.
Stamp sentiment on small oval, adhere to large oval, and adhere to card front.




Embellish as desired!

This card used more of the beautiful 12 x 12 cardstock and papers that DCWV had generously sent to Scor-Pal Owner, Diana Crick for us to design with. Isn't it pretty?  

We'd love to see your project linked up on our challenge this month!

I'm having so much fun with these products! With all of the fun and amazing products
that have come and gone during the many years I've been paper crafting, my Scor-Pal products
are something I reach for with nearly every project.  I'm so excited to have the new Scor-Pal Eighths board with the scoring grooves at every eighth inch.  It makes everything so easy!

Thanks for stopping by!
