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.






Supplies:
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
punch
monogram stamp to emboss
Ribbon to match
Lacy ribbon
Scor-Pal
paper trimmer
Scor-Tape



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


(1)

(3)




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.

(4)

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.

Hello!  I hope you enjoyed the Scor-Pal and DCWV week long feature! 
I offer you a sweet little treat in the form of a nugget box.

Details - Stamps: Taglines (Flourishes), Fine Herbs (Flourishes); Paper: DCWV Autumn Melody Stack, DCWV Autumn Melody Cardstock Stack, Very Vanilla, clear report cover; Ink: Soft Suede, Cajun Craze; Accessories: Scor-Buddy, Scor-Tape, 1/8" circle punch, gold cording. glue dot.
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

what wonderful ideas. I have learned so much over this week.

DianaW said...

I have learned so much this week but I guess the most important think I have learned is that you can do so much more with the Score-Pal. I just bought mine for the purpose of making boxes and cards. I cant wait to get started on these projects! Thank you for sharing.

belldoubleyou said...

Oh dear, I'm afraid I've been distracted completely from lovely papers and cool fold-y projects by thought of chocolate inside them!

Tami B. said...

I love making boxes for little party favors and treats, so both of these ideas are fantastic.

Tami B. said...

I've gained a couple of new ideas for treat boxes this week. Thanks for all the wonderful inspiration and beautiful projects.

Kathy M. said...

Shawna said...

I have so enjoyed seeing all the wonderful projects made this week. Thank you for such beautiful inspiration. Guess where I am going to be today? Holed up in my studio with my Scor-Pal, some beautiful music, and a stack of paper :-)

Sue D said...

This week I learned how to make my own envelope mini. LOVED that project!

Kim H said...

another set of wonderful projects. the note cards and holder are a great idea for a gift, and the candy holder can be personalized for anyone or any occassion. I have learned this week you can do alot with knowing where to crease a piece of paper =) thank you for a week of inspirations and tutorials that really help you understand the process.

Dorina D said...

What wonderful projects today. Loved the candy box with the acetate slide cover. Very cute and clever. And the note holder is such a great gift idea.

Dorina D said...

I've learned that I don't use my Scor-pal(buddy) for enough projects. That it's for more than making boxes. My favorites this week was the Mini album and the one made from envelopes you made yourself. And that I want the Scor-Envi, "Scor-bug" and your Project book added to my aresonal of tools. Thanks for such a fun week filled with fabulous projects and great tips and techniques.

Kathy said...

I continue to be in awe of what this DT has created with DCWV and Score-pal! What a great week of inspiration!

Pam D said...

Great ideas for treat boxes and note holders. Note holders could also be treat totes, TFS!

Ravengirl said...

Love, love, love Lisa's baskets! Super cute!

Beatrice Lawson said...

Loved those gifty bags and the treat box. Wow, they are fabulous. I can't believe it only took 30 minutes, have got to try!

Sherry Butcher said...

Thanks for sharing this week of projects so many useful ideas.

Beatrice Lawson said...

The best thing I learned this week was actually something I knew and forgot - use Scor-Tape to keep boxes and bags together. Everything else I tried falls apart...

scrappingnana said...

Love the basket and cards. The nugget box is simply adorable and a great way to give a little gift of chocolate. Love all the ideas. This has been a great week.

Jennie P. said...

Those baskets are so cute! I love the special edging they have as well.

I've learned the possibilities are endless with the Scor-Pal!

DonnaSue said...

Love these bags!

Pamela Haskin said...

What wonderful projects! So amazing and beautiful. Thanks for sharing all the details.

TracyM #6773 said...

What lovely projects!!!
The punched border, lace trim and ribbon handles make the baskets look extra special. Love the wrappers and acetate sleeve for the nugget box.
Thank you for sharing the details on how to create them both :)

TracyM #6773 said...

This week has shown me that with a Scor-pal, you are only limited by your imagination!!!
I have never seen such amazing projects created from flat sheets of paper - all made possible with perfect scoring and folding. I thought I was adventurouse by making fancy stepper fold cards, now I am inspired to create shadow boxes, treat boxes, baskets and MORE :)
Thank You for the inspiration!!!

Carol said...

I have learned so much, but mostly I learned that I need to use my Scor Pal more, it can do so much more than score cards!

Caryn S said...

Wow did you save the best for last or what?!? These cards and packaging for gifts are such great ideas and beautifully done (I love that monogram stamp - gorgeous!). The little chocolate nugget box is similar to things I have done before, and it was a lot of fun. Definitely something I would do in the future!

Caryn S said...

Every time I think I have seen everything the Scor-Pal can do, I am surprised with even more! Thanks for showing me the line embossing techniques as well as scoring on some not-so-standard materials.

Tonya said...

I have learned several different techniques for making boxes and gift items. I have also learned that a Scor-pal is not just for making cards and envelopes. Thanks again for a fun week.

Maureen Hayes said...

I have learned that I really need a Scor-Pal and that it does a whole lot more than just score a line for a card fold! Thanks for a wonderful week full of inspiration!

Tarnished Rose said...

Okay, that does it. I have got to buy me a Scor-Pal.

I loved learning how to make boxes this week.

Anonymous said...

Classy bag and classy box!

I've learned that I'll be spending a LOT of time in my craft room as a result of this week's projects, lol.

Holly Elliott said...

I learned that the Scor-pal is only limited to a persons imagination. Think big and Scor-pal will be the number one tool to help you achieve your crafty goal!

Adams Family Album said...

Adams Family Album said...

Big Mamma~ a.k.a. Mary S said...

What gorgious projects. I really love the candy box.

Big Mamma~ a.k.a. Mary S said...

Something I learned when making boxes it best to cut tabs at an angle. I never did but it does give a much cleaner fold.

Scrappin' Annie said...

Love those little boxes

jusaweecatnap said...

Two more great fall projects. Love the versatility of the Scor-Pal.

I sometimes stress over boxes. But with Scor-Pal it is so easy to do with just a rectangle of paper. Love the great instructions.

Suzi said...

Love these projects. Just regret that I haven't been able to keep up with the blog hop this week. I missed so much!

Memories by Manda said...

great ideas. I really appreciate that you all put the instructions down - very clear and easy to follow as well. I've enjoyed this week of double inspiration :)

Memories by Manda said...

One thing I have definitely learned from this week is that there is a lot more I can do with my scorer than I currently do! I also liked the idea of creating embossed lines on cards. So simple and easy yet elegant.

Beth F. said...

I LOVE that bag with the matching cards!

SouthernMrs said...
