Creating a Chevron Pattern with Scor-pal Guest Designer Melissa Craig


Hi everyone, Melissa Craig here.  I am so excited to share something I've discovered how to make.  I was inspired by a scrapbooking blog I happened upon and of course, now I can't find.  However, directions weren't posted on how to use a Scor-Pal to create chevrons, so I played.  I have figured out  how to make this super easy design element to add to your cards and pages and I'm excited to share it with you.  Here's my finished project....


And the chevron, up close.  Make a bunch of these... layer them up.  Trust me, they'll look fabulous!


Here's how to do it:

Step one:  Score a 1" x 11" lengthwise at 1/2"


Step two:  rotate and score every 1/2"


Step 3 Now you're going cut out your chevron.  Using each box you created with the score lines, you are going to cut out triangles.  The score lines give you perfect guidelines.  See diagram below:


Step 4 Voila!  You have a chevron border.  You can make these any size you want, just make sure you're scoring evenly.


I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and I would love to see your projects that you've added your chevron borders to.

Hugs & Blessings,
Melissa
