First up, on our final day, is Scor-pal Designer Lisa Andrews.
I am so happy that Scor-Pal and Die Cuts With a View has teamed up to bring you a fabulous Blog Hop! Their new line, Autumn Splendor is just gorgeous! I am so happy that fall is finally here. We have had both beautiful fall days and crisp fall days here in Colorado. That means that snow is not far away!
OK, onto my project. Believe it or not, this project only takes about 30 minutes to complete! Yup, you read right, 30 minutes! I am going on a scrapbooking/crafting retreat in a few weeks and decided to make these little note cards and holders for the girls.
2 pieces of card stock to match designer paper(Autumn Spendor cardstock) DCWV
1 piece of cream card stock
1 piece of designer paper from Autumn Splendor, DCWV
monogram stamp to emboss
Ribbon to match
First we are going to cut out our note cards, one sheet of card stock will make 8 note cards. Since I was making a number of note card holders, I used 4 note cards for each holder. (1) Score an 12" x 12" piece of card stock at 3" and 9", (2) next cut the card stock in half, 6". (3) Then stack each side on top of each other and cut 3" cards, as shown below
From the cream card stock, cut 5 - 2"x 2" squares, from coordinating piece of card stock cut 5 - 1 3/4" x 1 3/4" squares, now cut 4 - 2 7/8" x 2 7/8" squares from your designer paper. Fold cards in half and layer with all of the squares. My monogram stamp was 1 1/2" x 1 1/2". I stamped the monogram, then embossed with gold embossing powder. Viola! Note cards done!
Now for the basket. Cut a piece of designer paper, 3" x 11" and punch on the top edge. (1) Next, using a piece of matching card stock, cut a piece for the bottom, 3" x 4" and score each side at an 1/2". (2) Construct a small box out of the card stock and wrap it on the outside with 1/4" Scor-Tape. (3) Wrap the designer paper around bottom piece. Tip: I pinched the corners when I came to them. Attach a piece of Scor-Tape to the edge and close basket.
Next, wrap a piece of 1/4" Scor-Tape around the top and attach lace. Add two pieces of 1/4" Scor-Tape to the front and back. This will attach the ribbon handles, ribbon is about 8" long, you will need 2 pieces.
And your done!
For our final project of the week we have Scor-pal designer Toni Storie.
I offer you a sweet little treat in the form of a nugget box.
You will want to start with a piece of patterned paper or card stock that is 3 5/8" wide by 6 1/4" long. Score on the right hand side of your paper at 5 1/8" and 5 3/4". Turn your paper 180 degrees and score again at 5 1/8" and 5 3/4". (See Diana's video for an easy way to achieve those eighths)
Turn you paper 90 degrees and score on the right hand side of you paper at 2 1/2" and 3 1/8". Turn your paper 180 degrees and score again at 2 1/2" and 3 1/8".
Trim out the corner pieces shown below.
Create some tabs by trimming as indicated above on the red lines.
Ah, now we see some of the fabulous DCWV Autumn Melody patterned paper. In this step, you want to crease all of your score lines you have made.
Place some Scor-Tape on the panels adjacent to each side of the bottom of the box.
Peel the backing of your Scor-Tape on the shorter sides first and adhere it down.
Peel the backing of your Scor-tape on longer sides and adhere the tabs from the shorter sides.
Adhere the longer sides to the inside, finishing the bottom of you box.
Start on the cover of your box now with a piece of acetate ( I used a piece of plastic report cover) measuring 4 5/8" by 4/16".
Score at 3/8", 1 7/8", 2 1/2" and 4".
Crease each score line and apply Scor-Tape to the 3/8" section.
Peel the backing of your Scor-Tape and adhere the cover together. Slide it over your box.
Now for our wrapped nuggets, you will need some Hershey nuggets and a 1" by 2 3/4" piece of patterned paper. Again, we have some luscious DCWV patterned paper covering these nuggets.
Place some Scor-Tape on the back of the nugget and some Scor-Tape on one end of the patterned paper.
Peel the backing off your Scor-Tape and wrap up your nugget. The nugget box I made today fits 4 nuggets, so you will want to repeat these steps three more times.
Finally, slide back your cover and place the wrapped nuggets in your box. Decorate as desired.
Thanks for hanging with me through the tutorial! I hope you enjoyed it! You can find the original directions on Splitcoaststampers and the modifications for a long box here.
