First up, Scor-pal Designer Katie Tate.

For my project for the Pink Paislee meets Scor-Pal week I decided to go with an accordion style album. The graphic lines of the Portfolio collection lead me to an office supplies/library kind of theme and I thought a simple accordion fold would be a great way to showcase the fabulous design.

Tools - Scor-Pal and Scor-Mat
Adhesives - Scor-Tape
Paper and Accents - Portfolio Collection by Pink Paislee
Border Punch - Martha Stewart

I started with 2 pieces of designer paper measuring 12" by 7".

I scored at 3 3/4", 7 1/2" and 11 1/4" with the 12" side being at the top fence of the Scor-Pal. Do this on both pieces.

On the 3/4" flap that is left at the end of the scoring add a line of Scor-Tape
so you can attach the two pieces together.

Attach the two pieces and accordion fold, burnishing along all score lines.

Cut a coordinating piece of paper measuring 12" by 1" and using a border punch, punch along the long side. Using the Scor-Pal score in between each scallop of the punched edge and in the middle of the scallop. (this will vary depending on which punch you use for decoration.

Using the strip create a rosette and top with a coordinating button.

Create a pocket for one of the pages from a piece of paper 4" by 4 1/2". Score at 3/4" and 3 3/4" along the 4 1/2" side, rotate and score at 1/2". Burnish all score lines

Using Scor-Tape
attach the sides as in the photo.

Use more Scor-Tape
along all edges to create a good bond when attaching to the album.

Decorate the album as you desire. This is the front.

Front extended.

Back extended.

Next up, Scor-pal Designer Lisa Silver.

 I was so inspired by the beautiful Pink Paislee Portfolio Collection.  I thought the best way to showcase the paper was to create the perfect gift packaging... it's all about the paper!

Ink: Pumice Stone and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks by Ranger
Other: buttons, black twine by The Twinery, precision scissors, hot glue gun


Start with a full piece of 12"x12" patterned paper.  Score with your Scor-pal according to the template pictured above.  Snip along the short score lines and remove the labeled sections.  Here's a view of the cardstock prepped like the template.

Add Scor-Tape along the bottom of the box and the side.  Remove the protective backing on the tape strips and adhere to create the box.  Pinch the sides of the top of the box to "gusset" the top.

You have several options to complete your gift box.  In my project, I opted to add a lovely Artisan Flower and Chipboard butterfly to the front with a bit of hot glue.  I used Tumbled Tile and Pumice Stone inks on the chipboard butterfly to match my box.  I also trimmed a piece of printed patterned paper (Unbelievable) that reads "Today & Tomorrow and Forever" and adhered to the bottom of the box front.  Wouldn't this be a perfect way to wrap a wedding gift?  This paper is truly lovely.  It's perfect in every way with it's faux washi tape and lovely patterns.

I also used buttons to create my closure.  The best way to accomplish this is to start with a long length of twine, threaded through the button and knotted in the back.  Add a large amount of hot glue to the back of the button and gently press to the flap (not so that it squidges out from around the edge of the button).  This will leave space behind the button around the edges so you can wrap the twine.  Repeat with the second button.  I opted to thread a bit of twine through the bottom button for a consistent look.  If you'd rather not use hot glue (and we know how much fun it is), you can opt to adhere a small magnet to close or to punch holes in both the flap and the box front and string with twine.

Here's another view of the finished project.

These projects are fantastic! I pinned the template for the gift bag, absolutely have to use that one! The accordion album has so many great little details in it too, all of the pockets are great and so is the pretty rosette on the front.
