Market Street Stamps Week- Day 2


We are excited to be bringing  you a special week here on the Scor-pal blog featuring projects created not only with Scor-pal products but, also, some great stamps from our friends at Market Street Stamps.  We hope you will take time to stop by each day this week to see what the designers are up to. While you're here be sure to leave a comment each day for your chance to win a Scor-buddy and some Market Street Stamps that will be given away to one randomly selected visitor. Of course, you'll also want to hop over and pay a visit to the Market Street Stamps blog because they are featuring Scor-pal and Market Street projects as well!!


Deadline to enter for the random drawing is midnight Sunday April 22.

Today's project was created by Scor-pal designer Katie Tate.



Products Needed:
Cardstock and Designer Paper
Chipboard Coasters
Fringe Scissors
Dark Brown ink
Black ink for stamping images
Coloring medium for stamped images


Cut cardstock to 8 ¼” by 6 ½”.
Score at 2” and 6 ¼” along the 8 ¼” side.
Turn a ¼ turn and score at 3” and 4 ½” along the 6 ½” side.


Burnish all score lines and cut as indicated in the photo.




Create the box from the scored cardstock using Scor-Tape for strength.


Cover purchased coasters with your choice of paper. I always pick up items like this from the clearance bins at craft stores.




Using the Tiki Hut and 2 sentiment stamps from the set add decoration to your coasters. I would recommend sealing them with a product like Mod Podge before using.





Cut two strips of cardstock 12” by 1 ½”. Create a pleated strip by scoring at ½” and then at ¾” and repeat at ½” followed by ¼” alternating increments.
Burnish firmly to create the pleat.



Use Scor-Tape to hold the pleats in place. Using Fringing scissors snip along the bottom end.



Attached the strip to a prescored roof made from cardstock measuring 8” by 4 ¼” scored at 2” and 3” along the 8” length. Ink the edges of the fringe.
Add the second strip overlapping with edge at the 2” score.




Attached the roof to the back of the box and decorate the box to resemble a Tiki Hut with strips of coordinating paper. I added a sentiment from the Tiki Time set.



The coasters fit in easily and the fringed roof lifts to allow easy access to them.


I completed the set with coordinating invitations decorated with the Sip On stamp and images from the Tiki Time set.




Inside is a computer generated invitation decorated with two sentiments from the Tiki Time set.

The complete set ready for your next Girls Night In!
