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
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.

Scor-Pal More than One Score Challenge October #75 - Anything Goes or Harvest/Halloween

Welcome to the 75th 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 we want to see your "Harvest/Halloween" creations.
We are making some changes to the challenges this year, 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. 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.
