This month we want to see your "Valentine/Love" creations.
We will have a theme that the Design Team will follow, and we would love you to follow too, but if you don't want to you can do an "Anything Goes" creation as long as it follows the general rules
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.

Pinspired- Inspiration from our Pinterest Board with Dawn

 


Hi, everyone! At the beginning of the month, I showed my Christmas Slimline Box card, for the Scor-Pal More Than One Score Challenge - Any Winter Holiday. I'm back today with the detailed instructions.











To make the box, you will need:
one sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock

Decorations and embellishments that you wish to use.


I drew a template to show where you cut(solid lines) and score(dotted lines) your piece of cardstock. Sections marked with an X are cut off and not used.


To start, cut two 3/4" wide strips from the short end of your cardstock. Trim 1/4" off one end, and score at 5/8" from each end of each piece. Crease along the score lines and add Scor-Tape to the end flaps.

You now have an 8 1/2" x 9 1/2" piece. With the 9 1/2" side at the top of your Scor-Pal, score at 7" and 9". Rotate the piece a quarter turn to the right, score at 6", and score at 2" from the 7" score line to the bottom (9 1/2"). You can also score at 4" and 8" if you are going to cut with scissors. I used a paper cutter, so I could measure with that.

Cut at the 4" and 8" marks. This will leave you with two pieces. The one with the score line all the way through will be the front piece, and the other one will be the back. That's the reason we didn't score that part - it doesn't get folded down. On each of the pieces, cut off the top right rectangle, and cut down the 7" score line to the score line in the middle.

Crease all the score lines and add Scor-Tape to the two tabs on the right. Your pieces should look like this.




Attach the tab of one of the large pieces to the side of the other large piece. 



Fold the right hand piece over and attach to make the box. 




Attach the strips to the inside, butting the flaps against the back edge for one, and the front edge for the other. This gives fairly even spacing.


Now comes the fun part - decorating your box! I used my Kadomaru Corner Rounder to round the corners of the flaps. There are a few to choose from on the Scor-Pal site.

The patterned paper is from the DCWV Holiday Collection - The Christmas Stack.
I used the following pieces: 
Light patterned paper: two 1 7/8" squares
                                    one 1 7/8" x 6 7/8"
                                    one 3 7/8" x 6 7/8"
Green patterned paper: two 1 7/8" squares
                                      one 1 7/8" x 6 7/8"

I rounded the corners on the flaps, to match the base. The Stacker helped me add the Scor-Tape to all the patterned paper pieces. It's like having an extra hand!

The figures were cut with my Silhouette Cameo machine. I can't find where I got the file, but there are a few that are similar in the Silhouette Design store. I added all the figures, rearranging them until I was happy with the placement. Then I attached them with Scor-Tape. I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the star to add a bit of sparkle.

The box folds down to fit in a standard business envelope.




We would love to see your creations. You still have 2 weeks to enter, and all you have to do is have more than one score, and tell us where you used your Scor-Pal on your project. You could win a $25 gift certificate to the Scor-Pal store!

Pinspired - Inspiration from our Pinterest Board with Isia

Hello crafty friends! It's Isia here with another Pinspired post for the Scor-Pal blog. I found this pin - box for sweets on the Scor-Pal Pinterest Board. It was originally created by Toni Storie two years ago.

Supplies:
One 12"x12" piece of cardstock
One 12"x12" piece of pattern paper
Tissue paper
Scor-Pal scoring board
Scor-Tape
Paper Cutter (exacto knife and ruler or scissors)
Ribbon
Some embellishments
Score your cardstock at 10 cm. Turn your cardstock and score again at 10 cm. Repeat another two times on each side of cardstock.
Use your exacto knife or scissors to cut out all four squares (wings of this box) away as shown.
Prefold all scores and adhere pattern paper using Scor-Tape to the side tabs. Adhere some ribbon leaving some space between wings of this box. It should stay loose.
Decorate the front of the box with flowers or tag.
Insert tissue paper inside this box and fill with sweets.
Your box is done.

Mid Month Tutorial by Katie

Today I'm sharing the tutorial for the wreath I made for More Than One Score with Scor-Pal challenge

Products needed:
Wire Wreath form - Mine was from the Dollar Tree
Wired ribbon of choice
Paper Pad - I used Farmstead Harvest by DCWV
Any other embellishments you would like - I used dried Wheat, silk leaves, a cotton stem, pinecone, vintage buttons for "flower" centers.
Sign - Target Bullseyes Playground
Border Punch for edges of flowers
Scor-Pal Eighths board
Scor-Tape
Hot Glue gun and glue sticks
Paper Trimmer


Amazon Affilate links may earn me a small commission but do not increase the price for you, they simply allow me to continue to bring crafts to you







You start by wrapping the ribbon around the wire wreath form, hook one end under a row at the back and hot glue the pieces together to stop them slipping off. Then wrap the ribbon around the wreath form, overlapping slightly on each "wrap" to form a base for your decorations.




It will look like this when complete.




Using your border punch, punch allong the edge of a 12" piece of patterned paper.




Using your paper trimmer cut paper to be 1 1/2" wide and 12" in length.




Line the paper up at the top of the Scor-Pal and score the whole length at 1/2" increments.




Pleat your paper in a "hill and valley" style along the length of the paper.




Attach Scor-Tape to the end to adhere both ends together.




Form into a ring and attach, it will look like this.




Gently press the piece into a circle to form the flower.




Add hot glue to secure the flower together, I like to add a circle of cardstock for extra support.




You make these flowers in different sizes, the wider the paper the larger the flower, for flowers where the strip is more than 2" wide you will need to use additional strips or the paper will tear when you try and flatten it to make the flower. Add any embellishments you like to the center, I chose some vintage buttons




Adhere the paper flowers to the wreath with hot glun, for the floral stems I simply pushed those into the where the ribbon overlapped but you can hot glue them too. Add the sign with hot glue too.












I hope you enjoyed this little different from usual project, I like to combine crafts and so using paper crafts in home decor is a nice change from making a card.
