Scor-Pal and Graphic 45 week with Katie Tate

Today marks Katie's project in the very special week of projects featuring the fabulous Scor-Pal products and the gorgeous papers of Graphic 45!

There have been projects at Scor-Pal and at the Graphic 45 blog




For your extra entries into the draw today comment on this post, follow our blog and like our Facebook page. If you have been following all week you should be all set!
Be sure to check our Facebook Fan Page as there will be another way to win there too!




I decided to use both The Secret Garden and A Place in Time papers to create a cute exploding box with a surprise inside!



Project Recipe:
Scoring Tool - Scor-Pal
Adhesive - Scor-Tape
Papers - The Secret Garden and Place in Time both by Graphic 45
Border Punch - Martha Stewart Garden Lattice
Flower Die - My Favorite Things
Flower - Recollections
Lace - Hobby Lobby
Ribbon - Really Reasonable Ribbon

Start with a 12" square of cardstock, score at 4" and 8" and rotate and repeat.
Cut away the corners as in the photo.


For the lid use a piece of patterned paper 7 1/8" square, score at 1 1/2" on all sides. Snip as in the photo to form the flaps for the corners and add Scor-Tape to adhere.


Use your score-tool on the inside edges to make crisp corners on the lid.


Decorate as desired. I use cotton lace and ribbon on the edge and a flower centerpiece on the top of the lid.


I used accents from the paper pad on the inside.




From the Place in Time pad I used the calendar sheet to create a mini calendar as a surprise.



I hope I have inspired you to get creating with Scor-Pal and Graphic 45 and I hope you have enjoyed this week of projects.

Katie
