Belly Band Bag by Lisa Andrews

Hi!  Today I am sharing with you this cute belly band gift bag.  It is perfect for Mother's Day, Birthdays or just about any other occasion you can think of!

First, start of with a sheet of designer paper (I used Doodlebug, Fruit Stand here) cut to 11 1/2" x 7".  With the 11 1/2" side on the top fence of your Scor-Pal, score at 5" and 6 1/2".  Please note that the score lines are marked on my paper to show where to score.

Next, turn your paper so that the 7" side against the top fence and score at 1 1/2" and 5 1/2".

Using a straight edge (I used a strip of paper), line it up at the 3 1/2" mark on the left fence and score at 3/4" and 6 1/4" down to the straight edge.  Turn your paper to the opposite side and repeat.

Next, cut notches as shown below.

Adhere Scor-Tape as shown.

Create your bag!

For the belly band, I used a strip of coordinating designer paper cut 11 1/2" x 1 1/4".  Wrap around the top of the bag and adhere with Scor-Tape.

"More Than One Score" Scor-Pal Challenge #4 - Include a Stamped Image

Welcome to the 4th Monthly Challenge here at Scor-Pal!
We love showing our projects to you and now it's your chance to show your creations to us!
Each month we will have a different theme and you will have a month to create and enter your projects. As well as the theme you will need to make "More Than One Score" and tell us where you used the Scor-Pal on your project. So a single fold card won't count but an Easel, Gatefold, Stair Step, etc will :) Also we love to see your "Anything But a Card" projects, just as long as you make "More Than One Score"
We have a great theme this month, we want to see you include on your scored project.
Please note that you MUST include the theme as well as "More Than One Score", some people are not following the theme and therefore are not eligible for a Top 3 spot or the Prize, thanks. We have a nice set of samples from the Design Team, just click on their names to go to their blogs for more details on their creations.
The challenge ends at 10pm on May 31st and the new one starts on June 1st. Winners and our favorites will be revealed on June 5th.
