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.

Witch way to the candy?

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).

"More than One Score" Challenge #9 - Fall/Halloween

Welcome to the 9th 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 a "Fall/Halloween" theme 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.
You have an additional chance of winning this time if you use one of the tutorials here on the blog or from the project list on the store site to help create your project. Simply link to the tutorial you used in your post and you will be entered an additional time into the draw to be our winner.
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 October 31st and the new one starts on November 1st. Winners and our favorites will be revealed on November 5th.
