Back to School Tutorials with Scor-Pal with Steph Ackerman

Hi everyone Steph Ackerman here with a fun project I think any girl would love to use for school.   Add a post it note pad inside with a pen or pencil and note taking is now a breeze.





Using a template I created, I cut the cardstock and the coordinating pattern paper.
Score 3 lines in the center of the cardstock and then mountain/valley fold.




Cut the pattern paper into 2 pieces.
Fussy cut the pattern paper so it is slightly smaller than the cardstock.
Adhere it to the cardstock.




Create the handles from a 12" x 1 3/4" piece of cardstock.
Score the length and fold in half.
Add Scor tape down the center and adhere together.



Add Scor tape along the back edge and add the handles to the purse. 
Create a front panel and adhere it to the inside back on top of the handles. 


Add pattern paper inside to cover the added panel.
Punch along the bottom edge for some visual interest.


Add a button to the flap and you are done.  Just adhere the post it note stack inside.


And another view.



I'm thinking this would be a fun gift for a teacher - I think she'd love it, don't you?




Thanks for stopping by today.

Back to School Tutorials with Scor-Pal with Toni Storie

Hello Crafty Friends!  We are getting back to school with Scor-Pal this week and you do not want to miss a single bit of it.  Today, I have a fun little pencil box for you!  With a handful of scores, a snip here and there and the ever essential Scor-Tape, you will have a happy little container for pencils!  Let's get started:
For this project, you will need:
  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Tape
  • 4" x 9" piece of card stock
  • 7" x 7" piece of card stock
  • Paper snips
  • Stamps
  • Ink
  • Embellishments
Place the 4" x 9" piece of card stock into the Scor-Pal with the 4" side against the top fence.  Score at 1" and score again at 3". 
Turn the card stock 180 degrees so that your 9" side of the card stock is against the top fence.  Score at 1" and score again at 8".
Crease all of the scores and then trim tabs in 1" on the long side of the card stock.  The cuts will be on the 1" and 8" score lines.  Trimming a slight triangle makes for a clean edge. 
Turn card stock over and adhere Scor-Tape to each tab. 
Remove adhesive backing and fold tabs in to create the box. 
If you will be stamping on your box cover, you may want to do that now with your 7" x 7" piece of card stock.  If not, place the card stock into the Scor-Pal and score at 1 1/4", 2 1/4", 4 1/4" and 5 1/4". 
Crease all of scores on your box cover.
With the panels of the box cover defined clearly with the score lines, I stamped on the front of the box cover.
Turn the cover over and apply Scor-Tape to the first 1 1/4" panel, shown on the far right.
Remove adhesive backing and adhere box cover around the box base. 
Here is one more view of the finished pencil box, all closed up.
I'm so glad you made it all the way through the tutorial.  I hope it has been helpful.  Have a wonderfully creative day!

Details - Stamps: Teachers Count (Verve); Paper: Early Espresso, Snow Storm Smooth (MFP); Ink: Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Versamark; Accessories: Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape, clear embossing powder, heat tool, May Arts burlap twine, glue dots.

Back to School Tutorials with Scor-Pal - Lisa Andrews

Well it is that time again, almost Back to School, and the Design Team here at Scor-Pal have a wonderful week planned for you with tutorials featuring projects based around school!
We will have ideas to go in your kids backpacks, gift ideas for teachers and much more!
We hope you will enjoy them and please pop by to our designers and leave them a little love, I'm sure they will love to know you visited :)

Hi everyone!

It's me, Lisa Andrews.  This week the Scor-Pal designers are showcasing Back to School projects.  Today, I made a quick and simple little school supply holder.



To start, cut a piece of card stock 7 1/2" x 9".  With the 9" side on the top fence, score at 1 1/2" and 
7 1/2".  Turn your paper so the 7 1/2" side is on the top fence, score at 3" and 4 1/2". 


 Adhere your box together with Scor-Tape.


The finished box measures 6" x 1 1/2" x 1 1/2".  Now it is time to decorate.  Fill with school supplies.  I found a cute little notebook that I covered with Bo Bunny paper and put our teacher's name on it.


Supplies:

Scor-Tape 1/4"
Bo Bunny designer paper
yellow, black, blue and red card stock
Cricut George Cartridge (for numbers and Ms. S)
Red ribbon

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to visit everyday for a new project.

"More Than One Score" Challenge #7 - Food For Thought

Welcome to the 7th 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 great theme this month, we want to see you include a "Food For Thought" (anything food related :)) theme on your scored project.
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 August 30th and the new one starts on September 1st. Winners and our favorites will be revealed on September 5th.
