Market Street Stamps Week- Day 3



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 we have a birdhouse card featuring Scor-Pal and Market Street Stamps by Scor-pal designer Gini Cagle


Cut a 5 x 5" square of paper for the main portion of your house.  Line the paper up in the right hand corner of the Scor-Pal and score at 4" and 4.5". Turn a quarter of a turn and repeat the scores.  Keep turning and scoring until all four sides are done.


Cut away the four corners as shown.  Fold all score lines in towards the wrong side of the print.  


Using a punch or die, cut a circle in the middle of the house body. Add Score-tape to the outside folds, and form a box. Cut a piece of coordinating paper 3" x 3".


Use the Scor-tape to attach the box to the 3 x 3 square.



For the roof, cut a piece of paper 3" x 4". On the 4" side, make a small score in the middle (2" spot), just to mark the middle. Line this score mark up on a chosen line of the Scor-pal, and the bottom corner. Now you are ready to score your diagonal lines. Score a parallel line at 1/2" and 1" on either side of the roof. Cut along each of the outer most lines, and fold the scores.


After the scores are folded, you can add Scor-tape to make you roof dimensional.



Attach the roof and your house is ready to be added to your project.




The Cheep Talk Stamp from Market Street Stamps was paper pieced using American Crafts papers from the Garden Cafe collection.
