Now, let's turn it over to the Scor-pal Designers!
First off we have
Scor-pal Designer Katie Tate
I decided to make my version of an Explosion Box but started with a 12" by 12" sheet of cardstock scoring at 4" and 8" and then rotating a 1/4 turn and scoring again at 4" and 8".
I then removed the 4 outer squares for the base. The lid was a piece of cardstock 6 1/8" square and all 4 sides scored at 1".
Papers and all Embellishments - Welcome Home Collection by Bo Bunny
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
The lid has a rosette made using 12" by 1 1/2" strips of patterned paper. The strips were punched with the heart border punch and scored between each heart. I love the different look each different border punch gives to this simple rosette.
Each side is adorned with a different chipboard sentiment.
Here is the inside view. I made a mini album to match the box and it fits great in the box.
The album pages are all 4" square and held together with a mini binder ring.
The paper lent itself very well to a mini album with different accents on the paper working great in the mini size.
Here are the different pages, ready for your family photos and memories.
The back page has the perfect sentiment, don't you think.
I love how this turned out and I can't wait to add photos to it.

Hi all! This week Scor-Pal is teaming up with Bo-Bunny to share some projects using these two fabulous products together! Since I am using Bo Bunny's paper line Father Christmas, I thought I'd whip up a project that would be perfect as a little hostess gift or accent for your home!
So, let's get started! I wanted to create some Christmas coasters and a little coaster stand to hold them in. I started with these round coasters that I found in the dollar bin at Michaels.
I'll admit, they are pretty as is -- but mine will take on more of a Christmas flair! I started by making my holder. Take a piece of paper (Bo Bunny Wine Dot) that measures 5-1/2" by 10-1/2" and score 1/2" on each side lengthwise.
Flip your paper 90 degrees and then score at 2-1/2", 4-1/2", 5-1/2" and 8".
Fold each side in, and fold along all lines (valley folds). You can see below that I added some 1/4" Scor-Tape so that the two outside sections could be folded in.
After you fold both of those sections in, flip your polka dot paper over and add some Scor-Tape to the 1" base section. To create my coaster holder, I also created a cummerbund and base. The cummerbund section was created with a 1-1/2" by 11-1/2" strip of green polka dot paper. It was scored at 1/2", 5" and 6" and 1o-1/2". I secured on the side with some Scor-Tape. I also created a base for my coaster holder to sit on by covering a 4-1/2" by 2" piece of chipboard with this beautiful striped decorative paper (Bo Bunny Father Christmas Stripe).
And, this is what it looks like when you put it all together!
Add a Layered Chipboard sticker from the collection to spruce up the front and this part of the project is done! I have to say, I love how the rhinestones are already attached to these stickers -- makes it so easy!
The next part was making my coasters more festive! I covered each with a different paper from the Father Christmas collection and secured to my round coasters with the help of some Modge Podge.
And, here's a peek at all five done! You can see that I layered pieces and parts from different papers to give it more pizazz and really give it that decoupaged look. I just love the classic lines of these papers -- it creates a truly vintage look, don't you think?
Add the coasters to the cute little holder and.... voila!
Be sure to join the rest of the Scor-Pal DT this week as they share more inspiring projects with the Scor-Pal and some really pretty Bo-Bunny papers and embellishments!
Thanks for stopping by!
