Petal Boxes by Scor-pal Guest Nina Yang

Today we have a great tutorial from guest Nina Yang. You can find more of Nina's work on her website While there be sure to check out her tutorials featuring several other outstanding designs created with Scor-pal products.
Now for Nina's project!

Scor-pal, Scor-tape, Pencil & Eraser, Scissors, a 1-3/4’’ circle from scrap, a piece of 6”x12” patterned paper, [Optional] Hexagon Template (download here) or circle cutters/dies.

Patterned side up;
Top of your paper (where petals will be) against the left border;
Score at 1.5”, 3” and 5.5”

Patterned side up;
Bottom of your paper against the top;
Stop all score lines at the 1.5’’ line scored in step 1: Score at 1-3/4”, 3-1/2”, 5-1/4”, 7”, 8-3/4” and 10-1/2”.

Patterned side down;
Top of your paper against top;
Do not score but use your bone folder to mark 1-1/2”, 3-1/4”, 5", 6-3/4”, 8-1/2” and 10-1/4”. (1/4” to the left of the lines scored in step 2)

Patterned side down:
Bottom of your paper against top;
Do not score but use your bone folder to mark 3”, 4-3/4”, 6-1/2”, 8-1/4”, 10” and 11-3/4”. (1/4” to the left of the lines scored in step 2)

I numbered the marks hoping it would be easier to see in the next step.

Patterned side down;
Line the numbers in pairs up with the 6” line on Scor-pal (#0s shown here);
Stop at the 3” line scored in step 1, score at 6”.

Continue to line up the number in pairs and score all 6 pairs as shown:

Prepare the petal template


Mark the petals as shown:

Put scor-tape along the bottom (5.5” line scored in step 1), cut as shown:

Cut the top as shown:

Fold the scored lines as shown:

Add scor-tape to the side

Line up and adhere.

STEP 11:
Attach the base (Hexagon template can be download here, print at 100% )

Or you can use the inside of a scor-tape roll as a template:

Cut slightly inside the lines: We will use two circles as shown below:

STEP 12:

Awesome project and I love the way you showed us to make the petal top. Diane it was so thrilling and indeed an honour that the creator of scorpal paid me a visit at my blog.Since I love making pop up cards yourscorpal has been such a boon for me. Also I have a 5 year old and it helps me so much to make crafty school projects for her. After I got mine I have inspired many Indian crafters to get a scorpal too. Thank you for this blog too so that we can interract with the inventor herself!!!
