Pinspired - Inspiration from our Pinterest Board hosted by Patti

Hi everyone!
I'm the Pinspired hostess this month on the Scor-Pal blog. I found a really cute box that holds three nugget candies, and thought it would be fun for Halloween treats.  Here is Gloria's post that 'Pinspired' me:  

I linked this photo to Gloria's post, so if you click on the photo, it will take you there.

Here are MY finished boxes:

These were pretty easy to do, and I hope that you give them a try! 
I used my Scor-Pal Eighths, 1/4" Scor-tape, and 1/2" Scor-tape for this project.

Here we go....

Cut cardstock to 5 1/4" x 6"

On the 6" side, score at 3/4", 1 1/2", 4 1/2", and 5 1/4".

On the 5 1/4" side, score at 3/4", 2 1/4", 3", and 4 1/2"

Following this diagram, cut out all of the pieces that are marked with an X.

Your cardstock now looks like this:

Round the top two corners, and burnish all fold lines

On this side, add Scor-tape to the two side flaps (only the outermost flap, as shown).

Flip your box over, and add Scor-tape to the four tabs*.

Peel and remove protective piect from your tabs, fold them inwards, and bring your side flaps up.

Now, remove the protective cover from your side flaps and press them firmly to the inside of the box.

Your box flap should fold in and stay closed nice and firmly.

Here is the finished box.

*The one thing that I did on my finished boxes, was the punch a small 1/2 circle from the front edge of the box, to make a place for your thumb to lift the box flap.  You definitely want to do this prior to adhering your box together!  Here is a close up photo, so you can see the little half circle.

We hope you will give this a try!

That's it!  I made all of these boxes in one evening, and you can too!
Thanks to Gloria for some great 'Pinspiration'!

I hope you'll give this box a try. Don't forget, you still have time to enter the Monthly challenge at Scor-Pal!

Thanks for stopping by,

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!

Scor-Pal More than One Score Challenge September #63 Back to School

Welcome to the 63rd 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!
This month is really easy, we want to see your "Back to School" projects
It could be an organizer for your kiddos artwork, a card to welcome the new teacher, anything with a School theme!
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 ton of inspiration on our Projects on the Scor-Pal website and also on our Pinterest Board to get you eager to enter.

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.
