Scor-Pal and Graphic 45 Week with Steph Ackerman

For your entry today I need you to comment and also to follow our Pinterest board if you don't already!
You can find all the wonderful Scor-Pal projects at Pinterest


Good morning everyone, Steph  here today.  This week Scor-pal  and Graphic 45 are working together to create some wonderful projects for you.

I received the awesome Graphic 45 Secret Garden Collection and knew I wanted to create a box.  This paper collection is gorgeous with it's assorted colors and designs and I knew it would be perfect for the mini box I had in mind.  Then I also created some mini cards to fit inside
.



To create the box:
Using Spellbinders Grand Calibre Label Dies, die cut two pieces of green cardstock.
Cut 2 strips of green cardstock 3" x 12".



Adhere the 2 strips together to create one continuous strip and then cut it down to 17 1/2".
Score horizontally as follows:
1/2", 4 3/4", 9".
Rotate the strip and score at 4 1/4".



Rotate the strip vertically and score  at 1/4", turning the strip to finish scoring.
Add Scor-tape to the length of the strip.
Snip through the tape to the vertically scored lines (these will create the shape of the box).
Adhere the ends together to create the box sides.
Center over one of the die cut labels and adhere to create the box.




For the exterior:
Cut pink cardstock 2 1/2" x 4".
Cut pink pattern paper 2 3/8 x 3 3/4".
Cut brown cardstock 2" x 3 1/2".
Cut blue pattern paper 1 3/4" x 3 1/4".
Ink all edges with Clearsnap's Chox Ink in Sparrow before assembling.


To create the "hinge", cut green cardstock 3" x 3" and score in half. 
Add Scor-tape to one half and adhere inside the box.
Add Scor tape to the top half.




Center the second green die cut on top of the "hinge" and adhere.
Using several different sized dies, cut white cardstock and pattern paper to finish the box top, inside and out.


Adhere a Graphic 45 keyhole to the center of the front using ScraPerfect's The Best Glue Ever.
Add Want2Scrap bling around the key hole letting it flow around the sides.


Finish off the inside -
Cut pink cardstock 2 1/2" x 4".
Cut pink pattern paper 2 3/8 x 3 3/4".
Cut white cardstock 4" x 4" for the bottom.
Ink all edges with Clearsnap's Chox Ink in Sparrow before assembling.


Now let's create some cards to go inside the box.


Use left over scraps to create assorted cards.
Cut cardstock 8" x 4" and score at 4" to create 4" x 4" cards.
Add strips of cardstock across the center of each.
Cut apart elements of the pattern paper and ink edges with Clearsnap's Chox Ink in Sparrow.
Stamp assorted sentiments on each using ColorBox Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink.
Adhere to card fronts.


The cards are a perfect fit.  


Wouldn't this make a great birthday gift set or perhaps a Mother's Day gift set?

Thanks for stopping by today.

Steph
