May Arts and Scor-pal with Toni Storie

Hello! It's Toni here with another Scor-Pal project.  Today, the Scor-Pal team is hopping with the May Arts team. You will not want to miss any of the amazing projects put out by the Scor-Pal design team and the May Arts Ribbonistas.  For my part in this week's hop, I created a pleated gift bag*. 
For this project, you will need:
Cut the wrapping paper into a 12" by 12" square and place it pattern side up against the top fence of your Scor-Pal.  Score at 1", 2", 3", 4", 5", 7", 8", 9", 10" and 11".   Score lines are shown here in white, in order to be visible against the pattern.
Flip the wrapping paper over and Score at 3/4", 1 3/4", 2 3/4", 3 3/4", 4 3/4", 7 1/4", 8 1/4", 9 1/4", 10 1/4" and 11 1/4".  
Crease the score lines in a back and forth motion, creating pleats that expand out from behind the two inch wide center panel.

 Line the outside edges of your 1 1/2" x 6" piece of cardboard with Scor-Tape.  I have used 1/4" wide Scor-Tape here. 
 Remove the backing of the Scor-Tape and adhere to center of the inside of the pleated gift wrap.
Line the exposed cardboard face along the edges as shown and then line the outside pleats of the gift wrap above the cardboard with Scor-Tape
Remove the backing from the adhesive on the cardboard and adhere the front and back panels of the gift bag to the cardboard base.  Then remove the backing from the adhesive on the outside pleats and adhere the sides, front and back, of the gift bag together. 
To create handles for the gift bag, open up the bag and line two pleats of equal distance from the center with 1/2" wide Scor-Tape.  Repeat on the opposite side.
Remove the backing from the Scor-Tape and adhere a 24" length of May Arts ribbon in a "U" shape to create one handle.  Repeat on the other side.
Thank you for reading along with my tutorial today.  I hope you enjoyed it.  Make sure you head back to the Scor-Pal blog to follow the links to many other amazing creations.
