Scor-Pal More than One Score Challenge #28 Fun in the Summer Sun

Welcome to the 28th Monthly Challenge here at Scor-Pal!
We love showing our projects to you and now it's your chance to show your creations to us!
Each month we will have a different theme and you will have a month to create and enter your projects. As well as the theme you will need to make "More Than One Score" and tell us where you used the Scor-Pal on your project. So a single fold card won't count but an Easel, Gatefold, Stair Step, etc will :) Also we love to see your "Anything But a Card" projects, just as long as you make "More Than One Score"
We have a very current theme this month, "Fun in the Summer Sun and More Than One Score".
Please note that you MUST include the theme as well as "More Than One Score", some people are not following the theme and therefore are not eligible for a Top 3 spot or the Prize, thanks. We have a nice set of samples from the Design Team, just click on their names to go to their blogs for more details on their creations.
The challenge ends at 10pm on July 31st and the new one starts on August 1st. Winners and our favorites will be revealed on August 5th.
This months featured Design Team member is Janice so please go and take a look at her blog for a more detailed post on her project.

Hi, everyone!  Today I'm hosting our "More than one Score" monthly challenge over at the Scor-Pal blog!  This month's theme is "Fun in the Summer Sun" and I sure had fun making my project!  Check it out!

Isn't that so fun and refreshing?!  In this summer heat, you can't beat the refreshing feel of yummy watermelon!  I created a fun mini gift bag to house a card and gift certificate.  You can think of it as an embellished alternative to you ordinary envelope!  ;)

Instructions

 1. Cut a sheet of pattern paper to 6 1/4" x 12".  Using your Scor-Pal, score at 4 1/2", 5 1/2", 10" and 11", as shown below.

2. Turn paper vertically and score at 3/4".

 3. Fold along the score lines, then cut on those lines up to the 3/4" scored line to create bottom flaps, as picture below.


4. With the opposite pattern showing, score in the middle of the one inch section created, then fold on those lines.


5. Add Scor-Tape to the front of the side flap.

6. Turn paper over and fold taped flap in, as shown below.

(I added another strip of Scor-Tape to the edge.)

7. Peel off Scor-Tape backing and adhere sides together as pictured below.


8) Open up the bag to give its shape.

9) Add Scor-Tape to one of the bottom flaps and adhere to close.

Voila! Now it is ready to embellish!




Thanks so much for stopping by and make sure to visit the Scor-Pal blog and play along!

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with an Exploding Wedding Card and coordinating  Envelope, perfect for giving to a special bride and groom.






Supplies:
Cardstock:  Bazzill
Pattern paper:  K and Company, Momenta
Scoring Tool:  Scor-Pal
Adhesive:  Scor-Tape
Ribbon:  May Arts

Step 1 -
Cut cardstock as follows:
2 pieces - 6" x 12" (for tri shutters)
2 pieces - 6" x 6" (for front flaps)
1 piece - 6" x 8" (for base)

Step 2 - tri shutters
Make 2 tri shutters with the 6" x 12" cardstock
Align the longer side with the top edge of the Scor-Pal
Score each piece at 2", 4", 8", 10"



Step 3 -
Using a trimmer, cut both tri shutter pieces as follows:
Starting 1 3/4" from each side, cut down from the first scored line (2") to the last scored line (10")


Step 4 -
Create mountain and valley folds on each tri shutter



Step 5 - Base
Using the 6" x 8" cardstock, place shorter side at the top edge
Lightly score at 3"
Rotate cardstock and lightly score at 4"



Step 6 -
Following the scored lines, place Scor-Tape along the 3" mark
Center ribbon on the Scor-Tape


Step 7 -
Place Scor-Tape on the tri shutter panels that will be adhered to the base
Align both tri shutters to the 4" scored line on the base
They meet in the center and help hold the ribbon in place


Step 8 - Front Panels
Score the 2  6" x 6" panels at 2"
Place Scor-Tape on the 2" flap and adhere to the front panels to form 1 unit


This is the assembled card.


Now it's time to decorate
Cut papers to fit each flap of the card
Embellish as desired


A fussy cut flower added some depth to the front of the card
Use the ribbon to tie the card closed


To create the envelope, use double sided pattern paper
Plus the Scor-Envi on the Scor-Pal
Place the paper on the diagonal and score at 3" and 9"
Rotate the panel and score at 1 1/2" and 10 1/2"
  

Cut in to create triangles where the score marks overlap
This will make it easier to fold the envelope


Place score tape along the edges of two flaps and fold the bottom panel up to create the envelope


Place the card inside
Perfect fit every time!



Thanks for stopping by today.

For mine I am showing a set I made a couple of years ago. I felt sure I'd shared it before but I scoured my blog and couldn't find it, but even after time this is still one of my very favorites and it is perfect for a Mother's day gift
I didn't photograph all the steps when I made it but it was made using the fabulous tutorial that Wendy Weixler shared at Split Coast Stampers, she also shares the template there so you can make one yourself.


Project Recipe:
Scoring Tool - Scor-Pal
Paper - Chloe by 3 Bugs in a Rug
Border Punch - Daisy by Martha Stewart
Ribbon - Michaels
Butterfly Punches - Martha Stewart
Border Die - My Favorite Things
Banner Die - My Favorite Things
Brads - Target








What is great about using a paper with both sides patterned is that when the paper is folded over the form the visual "lid" it shows the coordinating pattern.





It is hard to show how the box opens in a photo but the tutorial I linked to has a video so you can see it clearly.
