SEI and Scor-Pal Week with Gini Williams Cagle with Giveaway!



Hi, it's Gini, and I'm here to kick off the fun for the SEI and Scor-Pal cross-promotion week !  We have lots of fun in store for you, including wonderful projects and great prizes.  Every day, we will have 2-3 posts on our blog, and the SEI blog is going to be sharing projects and prizes as well. Leave comments on our blog, and Facebook page for entries to win.  There may be extra ways to earn entries hidden in the posts - so pay close attention for those chances.

So, speaking of prizes, here is what we are giving away:


A full-sized Scor-Pal!  We will also add a couple of rolls of Scor-tape!  Be sure to tell your friends, because you won't want to miss out on this giveaway!  Make sure all of your entries are in by Sunday, May 5th, 11:59 pm E.S.T.

So now onto my project -  I had seen this sliding box on Pinterest, from Wenche's blog, 
but I needed to convert it to inches rather than centimeters.  If I had looked back at the blog, I would have noticed that our guest designer, Joann, had just done the same box! But at least you will get two different takes on a great project.

 Cut a piece of cardstock 9 1/2 x 11 1/4".  With the long side against the top fence of your Scor-Pal, score at 2 1/4",     4  1/2", 6 3/4" and 9".  Turn the paper so the short side is against the top fence and score at 1/2",         2  3/4", 6 3/4", and 9"


Cut as shown.

Score diagonally, as marked with the dotted lines.

Measure 1/2" from the bottom of the diagonally scored flaps, and mark a notch.  Use something oval shaped to trace a cutting line to shape the paper like this:

Cut the rounded edges.


Cut two pieces of cardstock, 2 1/4", x 2 1/2".  With the longer side against the top fence, score at 2 1/4", so you have a 2 1/4" square.  Add Scor-tape to the folded lip of the center flap, and attach these pieces to extend the flap.  (The 1/4" flap of the small piece of cardstock will be adhered to the bottom of the box to form a pocket to slide the rounded flaps into).

Add your designer papers before assembling the box, and decorate as desired.
