First up, Scor-pal Designer Toni Storie.
Today, I have prepared for you a Flat Backed Treat Box*. You can fit a variety of small treats inside this little box.
Details - Stamps: Winter Tree (Verve), Ornamental Christmas (Verve); Paper: Core'dinations Core Impression Pink Paislee Modern Prints, Core'dinations Core Essentials Card Stock Neutrals, White card stock; Ink: Tuxedo Black; Accessories: Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape, Sand It Gadget, scissors, corner chomper, Copic markers, Diamond Stickles, rhinestones, silver cording.
One 7" x 9" piece of card stock
Additional card stock for stamped images
To begin, place your card stock with the 9" side of the paper against the top fence of your Scor-Pal with your embossed pattern face down. I used some Core'dinations Core Impression Modern Prints. Specifically, I used the Leapfrog Chevron pattern. Score at 1", 2", 3", 4" and 5".
Turn your card stock 90 degrees and align your 7" side with the top fence. Score at 1/2", 3/4", 1 1/2", 5 1/2", 6 1/4" and 6 1/2".
Trim off the corner pieces as shown in the picture below.
Trim the tabs on 3" and 4" score lines up to the 1 1/2" score on either side. These cuts are highlighted in red for you.
Trim the edges of each tab at an angle to ensure a good fit.
Take your Sand It Gadget and sand over the embossed pattern on the top 4" by 4" section which will be the "flat back" on your box. Sanding will reveal the cool ColorCore of this fabulous line!
Turn you box over and adhere your Scor-Tape between the 1" and 2" score lines.
Next, you will burnish all the folds on your box.
Finally, remove the backing on your adhesive and assemble your box. Fold each section in toward the flat back until you make the rectangular box at the base. Fold in each of the short tabs. Then fold in the longest tab to close off each end.
Embellish your treat box as desired. Don't forget to fill it with fun little goodies. This year, mine will hold holiday chap stick for my girlfriends
I hope your enjoyed today's tutorial, as much as I enjoyed creating it for you!

Next, Scor-pal Designer Katie Tate
There are other tutorials around but I decided to go from scratch and see how it turned out :)
Core'dinations Card Stock - Core Amour Sable and Onyx and Signature Series (matches Graphic 45)
Tools - Scor-Pal and Scor-Mat
Adhesive - Scor-Tape
Ribbon - Really Reasonable Ribbon
Brad - Heidi Grace
For the base of the box I started with an 11" square of card stock. Scored at 3", made a 1/4 turn, scored again at 3" and repeated until all 4 sides were scored.
I burnished all scored lines and then, as shown in the photo, I cut up one scored line to the intersection on all four sides to make the flaps that become the corners on the box.
I then turned the base over and added Scor-Tape to all 4 flaps.
To create the base part of the cupcake to top the box you need to make rosettes of different sizes. All are scored at 1/4" along the long side and all strips are 12" long. The widths of each strip are 3/4", 1", 1 1/4" and 1 1/2"
To create the top part of the cupcake make more rosettes, this time with strip widths of 1 1/4", 1", 3/4" and 1/2". Top the smallest one with a decorative brad/embellishment.
Decorate the box further if you wish, I simply added a pleated sheer ribbon to the sides of the lid. I finished the set with a simple gate fold card in coordinating papers.
And finally a few choice cupcakes makes for the perfect gift.
