Mid Month Tutorial hosted by Nancy




Hello crafters - Nancy here today to show you how I made this cute note pad folder for this months Scor-Pal more than one score challenge.  



I started with a piece of embossed cardstock measuring 10.5 x 8. Heavier weight cardstock is better for this project. On the short side I scored at 6.5 On the long side I scored at 4.5, 4,75, 9.25 and 9.5 Fold and burnish all score lines.



I cut the bottom to make the flaps and rounded all the corners with a corner rounder - see photo below.

I did not use any adhesive for the flaps because once you snap the folder closed everything stays put.


Once the folder was made I added some die cuts to the front. I thought this set from Sugar Pea
designs was perfect for the Back to School theme.


 


To hold the note folder together there are several options. In the past I have used Velcro or magnets but for this project I used a snap fastener system I found on Amazon. You need a special plier and a set of fasteners for this - they can be found on Amazon.




That is it for today! I hope you will be able to spend some time creating. Be sure to upload your "more than one score" project on the Scor-Pal blog here to be entered into a drawing for a $25 Scor-Pal gift card. You can find the scor-pal HERE and scor-tape HERE. Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Pinspired - Inspiration from our Pinterest Board hosted by Steph

Hi everyone, this month's challenge on the Scor-Pal blog is to create anything for organization purposes, just be sure it includes more than one score.

Today I'm sharing the direction of how to create this Hexagon Box.







Cut cardstock 8 1/2" x 6"
Score the long side at 2", 4", 6", 8"
Rotate and score 1/2"



Cut cardstock 4 1/2" x 6"
Score the short side 2", 4"
Rotate and score 1/2"


Place ScorTape along the 2 long edges that are 1/2".



Join the pieces to create the box by adhering at the  1/2" mark.



Cut 4 pieces of pattern paper, each 1 7/8" x 5 1/2".
Adhere the pieces to the exterior.
Repeat for the inside if desired.
Adhere the final edges to create the box.

Die cut 2 medium sized hexagons and 2 large sized hexagons (sorry for the different color!)



Adhere the medium hexagon to the box bottom, forming the shape.
It's a little fiddly, so work slowly - the die will not line up edge to edge - but it will hold the shape.
Adhere one of the large hexagons on top of the medium one.
It will slightly overlap the box, so cut off the excess.
Place the 2nd medium hexagon inside the box bottom giving it added stability.



Cut 1" x 7" strip for the handle.
Cut 1/2' strip of pattern paper and add to handle.

To create the box top:
Cut 2 pieces of cardstock, each 2" x 8".
Use a scalloped die to die cut both pieces and adhere them together forming one piece.



Score 1/2" from the straight edge and place a row of Scor-Tape.
Working one section at a time, line the scalloped edging with the large hexagon.
At each point, cut the scalloped strip on an angle and score.
Work around the hexagon until you reach the end and cut off the excess.
Cut a strip of pattern paper 1/2" x 9".
Score at each point and adhere around the scalloped border.
Add a large scalloped circle on top.
Place the handle next and adhere with Scor-Tape.
Place brads for added stability.
Glue flowers about the handle.
 

Simply by changing up the papers, wouldn't this make a great gift for a teacher, a friend, or perhaps a wedding couple?
 
What will you place inside?

Thanks for stopping by.

Pinspired - Inspiration from our Pinterest Board hosted by Nancy

Each month one of the members of the Scor-Pal design team looks back at Scor-Pal's Pinterest page and recreates a project, using their own design.
This month it is my turn. Looking through the Pinterest page, I found this lovely Z-fold Christmas card made by Lois Bak.



The design is simple yet elegant and can be used for any occasion.
I decided to go with a summer fruit theme and created this strawberry card.


Start with cardstock measuring 4.25 x 11. On the long side score at 5.5 and 8.25



Fold and burnish on the score lines so they make a Z shape.



Attached decorative or stamped paper to the panels as shown.



Attach the focal panel to the front.
The Scor-Pal can be found HERE.
Scor-Tape can be found HERE.
The stamp is from I Brake For Stamps and was colored with copics. The diamond pattern stamp is from Papertrey and was stamped with Memento ink.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you find inspiration to make your own project!
