Hello everyone! I am so excited to share with you today my Easel Table Favor box. This would make a great addition to your holiday table. Plus, they are super easy. Even the kiddos can help out with these! I really loved the DCWV Autumn Melody Pattern Paper and Card stock Stacks that we were able to use. They were the perfect canvas for my project - it even matched my candy corn! 


Supplies:
4x4 square cardstock for drawer 
7 ½ x 3 cardstock for drawer cover
5 x2 ¾ cardstock for easel box top
Scallop frame cut with Silhouette Machine
Name journaling spot cut with Silhouette Machine
Copper Brad
Burlap, button and twine for embellishments
Leaf shapes cut with Silhouette Machine

Step 1 – Score 4x4 cardstock ½ inch on each side.

Step 2- Snip corners as shown.


 Step 3 –Glue corners in to create box.
                             

 Step 4 – Score 7 ½ x 3 inch cardstock at 3,3 ½,6 ½, and 7 inches.

  
                                       
Step 5 – Fold box and glue edges together. Slide the cover over the drawer bottom. (It will be a little bit snug)



Step 6 – Take brown cardstock easel box top and score at 1 ½ and 3 inches.




Step 7- Glue oatmeal card stock to the box top and add adhesive to the underside as shown. Glue that section down.




 Glue name journaling spot to the scallop frame. Score leaf shapes down the middle and ink the edges. Add burlap strip, button and twine to top of box. Add Copper brad to front of box. Fill with your favorite treat and enjoy!




Next up, for Day 5, Scor-pal Designer Abby Henderson

When I first saw the Autumn Splendor stack I knew right away what I wanted to make, some Gratitude boxes for my family. I made a box for each of us, starting from the left is Steve's, mine, Kaley's and Tre's. Starting the first of November, my family and I will write down one thing we are grateful for each day and put our slip of paper in our boxes. At the end of the month we will all share what we wrote. 



Supplies:
Scor-Pal
Scor-Tape-all widths
DCWV Autumn Splendor Stack and coordinating CS Stack
Tim Holtz Distress Ink-Walnut Stain
Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations Tattered Leaves Die
Mon Ami Gabby-Green trim
3 Girl Jam-Burlap
Twine & other trims-scrappy stash
May Arts-wide Gold Ribbon

First I chose which papers I wanted to use from the Autumn Splendor Stack and Card stock stack. For the base of the boxes, I cut the paper 11" square, then I scored each sheet at 4" on all sides.



Once I made all of my score marks, I cut the score lines on the opposing sides up to the first vertical score line.


Here you can see where I made the cuts. The next step is to measure 1" tabs on two sides.



It's not necessary to cut angles for your tabs but it does make a nicer fold on the inside when you're putting your box together. I've done it both ways and having the angles is easier, I think.



Once I made all of my cuts I used some 1/4" Scor-Tape on my edges. I do want to note that I inked all of my edges before putting my boxes together. I didn't want the white core of the CS to show once the boxes were assembled.


Here you can see the difference the inking makes, on the left the white core is really noticeable and I didn't want that for this project.


I used my Scor-Tool from my Scor-Pal to burnish the Scor-Tape to the CS...this is especially important on the CS that has texture & raised glittered images as the one in the picture above. 


For my box lids, I cut some coordinating CS 5" square and then scored it at 7/8" on all sides.



Instead of cutting angled tabs..this time I just made cuts up to the first score mark.



I again inked the edges of my lids before putting the box together. Scor-Tape can be used for more than just construction purposes. Here you'll see that I used it for my embellishing of the boxes as well.


I used the 1/8" tape to secure my twine to the base of the lid for Steve's box. I also used Scor-Tape for adhering all of my other ribbons, embellishments and sentiments. No need to use anything else...Scor-Tape is the best : )

Here are some close up photos of the boxes....


I fussy cut some of the images from the Autumn Splendor Stack to decorate the boxes. 





Making these boxes was super easy when you have a Scor-Pal to use along with some FAB paper like the Autumn Splendor stack from DCWV and of course Scor-Tape to put it all together. 

I have "Be Grateful Everyday" written on the family calendar that's posted on our fridge as I think it is really important to be grateful for what we all have in our lives & what a great way to not only encourage my teenagers to write something down each day but it's also a fun way to decorate for the Fall season. 

I hope you enjoyed my project and that I've inspired you to create your own Fall themed decorations for your home using the Scor-Pal & DCWV products.

I first heard about Scor-pal through CK magazine.

belldoubleyou said...

Heck yeah, inking the edges totally makes a difference for 3d projects. Sometimes it feels like a lot of work, but it is worth it.

First I heard of Scor-Pal was when my sister showed me her Scor-buddy when we were on vacation together.

TracyM #6773 said...

FABULOUS boxes!!!
Thank you for sharing how you made them - I look forward to making some now :)

TracyM #6773 said...

I have heard about Scor-pal at different blogs for a while now but as I haven't seen any around in my stores it took your creative week with DCWV to push me in to searching for them on the internet so that I can buy one online :)

jusaweecatnap said...

Wonderfully clean instructions for two lovely boxes. Thanks.

Anonymous said...

I first learned about Scor-pal via Splitcoaststampers.com. The crafters would post gorgeous cards they'd made using your product. Often they would link back to your projects site. Wowzers! Just like today's projects!!!

Ravengirl said...

Lovely work ladies! I think both boxes are great!

Kray said...

These projects are so cute and clever! I really enjoyed all the projects this week.

Kray said...

I first heard of Scor-pal through a scrapbooking forum that I have belonged to the past 4 years or so. Scor-pal is a "must have" for crafts.

lucretia said...

The box of chocolates is a beautiful idea I would never have thought of.

Tami B. said...

Today's post is one of those that I have to kinda "camp out" at for a little while. Beautiful projects and great ideas!

Tami B. said...

I really don't remember how I first heard of Score-Pal, but it was most likely on a blog, (lol...go figure.)

Jennifer said...

More AMAZING projects!!! :) I love all the detailed instructions so we can try making our own! Thank you so much for taking the time,

Bonus Entry (& I soooo NEED to win a Scor Buddy ;)

I first heard about Scor Pal on Splitcoaststampers (love their website!). I was interested in the more affordable Martha Stewart Scoring Board when it came out, but it ended up being a waste of $15!
:( There is just no comparison: the Scor-Pal is WAY BETTER!!!!!!! You just get the best, crisp folds...

Thanks so much for the chance to win,

INspiration overload!!! What talented ladies you have on your design team!! Lisa, Toni, Tya, and Abby's work are all stunning and perfect gifts for this time of year!! Thank you for all this week's beautiful projects!! Truly enjoyed them!

jordanbev5 said...

One of the details left in a tutorial today, stated to burnish the Scortape with the bone folder. That makes a lot of sense for hold to fold, thicker paper especially! Thank you for ALL the tutorials on Shadow boxes, and boxes and multifolding cardstock! Loved all of it and learned a lot!

Kelly said...

I first learned of Scor-Pal on the internet, either through You Tube or a blog. I compared it with other products and decided Scor-Pal was the BEST so I purchased it from you. I have never been disappointed or sorry I made this purchase. Thank you!

Pam D said...

I can't remember where I first heard about Scor-pal. Probably from one of the card-making blogs I follow

Memories by Manda said...

These ideas are wonderful (again). Pity I am at work and can't break out my scorer! :)

Memories by Manda said...

I first heard about Scor-pal looking at it used on a project on a blog. I went searching online about the scor-pal then tried to find a supplier in New Zealand. They are difficult to find here and I have to admit I don't own one of these wonderful scorers.

Beth F. said...

All of those boxes are so neat!

SouthernMrs said...

Very cute boxes. TFS

CathyinMN said...

Very nice boxes; they show off this DCWV paper stack so nicely.
