NEW SCOR-PAL EIGHTHS!! - ATC Box Card by Diane Zechman

A few weeks ago I participated in an ATC swap (artist trading card) and made 2 different ATC's with fancy cuts and folds. My Scor-Pal and Scor-Tape, which I couldn't do without, came in very handy! (Have you seen the new Scor-Pal Eighths? Check out the pics below!)

Here's my first ATC from this swap...be sure to check back for the other one.

When the box folds flat, it measures 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", ATC size. Note: This is an adaptation of the Pop Up Box card.

For the ATC box card base you will need 2 pieces of cardstock: one piece measuring 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" and one 3/4" x 2 1/2" strip. *To easily cut these without waste, start with a quarter sheet of cardstock- 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Cut this down to 3 1/2 x 5 1/2. Then cut the remaining strip to the 3/4 x 2 1/2 size needed.

Using your Scor-Pal, score the long side of the 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece @ 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 3 3/4, and 5". Turn it counter-clockwise 1/4 turn and score again @ 1 1/4". Crease the folds and cut the top flaps down to the 1 1/4" scored line as shown below. Remove the top section of the 1/2" flap, angling the cut as shown.

Add Scor-Tape to the remaining 1/2" flap, fold and adhere box.

Next score each end of the small strip @ 5/8". (Or score @ 5/8" and 1 7/8")

Crease the folds and adhere each flap inside the top of the box card. This piece is what you will adhere your images, etc. to. See the finished box for placement...

The patterned paper layers to finish the ATC card will be the following sizes... 1" square, 1 x 2, and 1 x 3 1/4 (for the inside of the back).

This is such a cute little pop up box...love the size! WOW! I'm looking forward to your new eighth inch Scor-Pal! Your scoring tool is so comfortable to use (in comparison to other brands on the market). I've been waiting for your company to make this size...thank you!
