Our first project this week comes from Scor-pal Designer Katie Tate:


As the Simple Stories Sn@p Life designs lead me towards a youthful design I decided to go with an organizer for my 14 year old daughter to keep all her movie tickets/notes/memorabilia in before she gets around to scrapbooking it.



Project Recipe:
Scoring Tool - Scor-Pal
Adhesive - Scor-Tape
Patterned Papers and accessories - Sn@p Studio
Ribbon and eyelets - Stash


First I started by creating 12 simple pockets (one for each month) from 6" square pieces of card stock. I scored each at 3" and burnished.


Then I cut the date tags from the patterned paper, each measuring 6" by 3"


Then I added Scor-Tape to the base of each month block.


 attached each month block to the inside of the back side of the pocket so you could see them when opened.

I
Then I added Scor-Tape to the back of each pocket (at the top of the pocket before the tab) so that I could attach the pocket together in a kind of accordion folder style)


I removed the tape lining and attached them together in order as you can see in the photo.


I then used Scor-Tape on the front and rear pockets to add the decorative front and back from the papers


Then I went "old school" and added 2 eyelets to both the front and back covers to allow me to add a ribbon closure to the organizer.


I added a sheer ribbon and tied it in a bow.


Next I created a base box to stand the organizer in so that all the things wouldn't fall out when it was opened.
This was simply a 12" square piece of coordinating patterned paper scored at 3" on all 4 sides.


I snipped each corner up one square and added Scor-Tape to the front side formed flaps to created the box.


Here you can see the base


I then added embellishments to the box and the organizer sits perfectly.


This is a super simple project and perfect for the teenage girl in your life :)

Pamela Romero said...

Bonus: This week, I've learned two things. First, that you can score and use Scor-Tape to make pages of a mini book. Second is that you can use Mod Podge as a book binder glue to glue down paper over cardboard. That should have been a no-brainer but I hadn't thought of that.

Dorina D said...

What a fun week with so many new ideas and great tips. Loved the Wilderness Survival kit - great idea and the LIsa's S. Mini Book tutorial was fabulous. What I've learned is that we can make anything we want and we limit ourselves if we never try anything new and explore. Thanks for the fun.

Love your blog!

Rae Ann said...

Very nice. I see this being easily adapted into a means of storing receipts, month by month, instead of tossing them all together (which I sometimes tend to do).

Rae Ann said...

Oh, there was a lot of good stuff learned this week but the one I'll mention is the cascading card. I've seen a number of them lately but haven't done on myself and wouln't have known how without your great tutorial. I really enjoyed seeing all these blogs this week, at both blog sites.
