SEI and Scor-Pal Week With Lisa Silver



Welcome back for the Day 2, Post 2 of 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.

Hello!  It's Lisa with a tutorial with another quick gift idea!  I was inspired by a project that Cindy Lyles (StarLitStudio) posted several years ago.  You can find discussion and details of what she did HERE.

I'm completely up the challenge, and since Mother's Day is around the corner, I knew I'd make this for a special person in my life.

Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Think of Me Card Maker Paper Pack by SEI
Paper: Solar White by Neenah, Posh Bright Blue Dungaree, Pop-Ton Gundrop Green 100#, Pop-Tone Snow Cone 100# DiscountCardstock.com
Other: corner rounder, flower dies by My Favorite Things, sequins from Etsy, precision scissors, Velcro by 3M

So, let's begin!



Following the template below, score your box base at the noted marks using your Scor-Pal scoring board and Scor-Tool.



Remove portions to create a base as shown below.


Fold along all the score lines and add Scor-tape to close the sides.  You can opt to round all the corners.


Adhere the small flaps to the folded side first.  Remove the backing to the Scor-tape and close the sides.


 Add Velcro to close the box.


Cover the front flap of the box with beautiful SEI patterned papers.  Embellish as desired.



The mini box will hold 6 cards and 6 envelopes.  Create a set of lovely cards with SEI papers to match the theme and design of the project for a perfect and complete gift.



Using your Scor-Envi, score as directed on the tool for the 3" x 3" envelope.  This begins with a 5-3/4" square piece of paper with scores at 4-1/4" and 7-3/4" along both sides.




Thanks for visiting,
Lisa

This box is really nice
looking and the fact that
it holds 6 cards and their

worthwhile making. Great

Great idea. Would also make a good gift box for the present that won't fit in an envelope but doesn't need a big box.
