It can be something you've created and posted online, it can be a project from the Scor-pal Project Board on Pinterest, it can be from the Scor-pal Gallery at Splitcoast Stampers, a project from the project listing on Scor-pal website or anywhere else! Simply leave a comment with the link here on this post telling us what you can't wait to make.

Deadline for entering is 8am Central, Monday, January 28, 2013.

Our first project this week comes from Scor-pal Designer Gini Cagle

 I received the Take A Hike Collection - and as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to create a paper backpack box that I had seen awhile back on Splitcoast Stampers.

May Arts Ribbon Paper Twine 420-33
Epiphany Crafts Round Epoxy
CTMH Velcro Dots

I used a tutorial designed by Mary Arima - and it's very clear and easy to understand, so I will just let you refer to her original post on Splitcoast Stampers

When you are working with printed templates, such as the one used for this project, I would suggest using small metal clips to attach your template to the designer paper. This will keep anything from slipping and will provide a much more accurate cut. 


As soon as I finished this project, my nephew took off with it, and promptly put it on the back of one of his stuffed animals!


I used the printed bingo card from this collection to make a small tag that fit perfectly into the backpack. Just the perfect little note to tuck inside.

The other little tip that I can share with you, is that I used small adhesive velcro dots for my closure on the box. It also works great to keep fancy fold cards shut.


Next up, Scor-pal Designer Diane Zechman:




The first card is called a Stand Up Card.
I added some Stickles to the star and "hello" sentiment to make them stand out. Love that bike sticker!



Here's a view of the back of the card so you can see the scoring/folding.



For my second card I made a very simple Folded Paper Frame to showcase the main greeting (a Snap card). A tutorial on how to make the frame can be found here.



I also added some Stickles to the main image on this one. Some additional stickers and another Snap card on the inside...
 


Love the Snap Color Vibe collection of papers!
Fun prints!
