We would love it if you are "Pinspired" or have been in the past by projects on our Scor-Pal Pinterest board , if you have please be sure to leave a comment below and let us know what "Pinspired" you!




I made another wine box.  Seriously, I will never again buy a wine bag!  I had a few questions about how to make this project.  The good news is that it isn't really that hard.  
For this project, you will need:
  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Tape
  • One 11" x 12" piece of card stock
  • Six 1 1/4" x 7 3/4" pieces of card stock
  • Six 1 1/8" x 7 5/8" pieces of patterned paper
  • Paper snips
  • Hole punch
  • Pencil
  • Ribbon
  • Stamps
  • Ink
  • Embellishments as desired
Place the 11" x 12" piece of card stock with the 12" side along the fence of the Scor-Pal. Score at 2" and 10".
Rotate 90 degrees. With your 11" side along the fence of the Scor-Pal, score at 1 3/4", 3 1/2", 5 1/4", 7", 8 3/4" and 10 1/2'".
With a pencil, mark at 7/8", 2 5/8", 4 3/8", 6 1/8", 7 7/8" and 9 5/8". 
Fold and burnish all of the score lines.
Trim off both 1/4" x 2" rectangles seen here.
Trim from the top down and from the bottom up 2" to the score line.  This creates 6 tabs on the top and 6 tabs on the bottom.
With Scor-Tape, adhere 6 strips of 1 1/8" x 7 5/8" designer paper to 6 strips of 1 1/4" x 7 3/4" strips of card stock.
With more Scor-Tape, adhere one strip to each scored panel on the box.
Use the pencil mark on the top 6 tabs as a guide to cut down from the center to each edge of the tab, creating triangle shaped tabs.
Punch a 1/4" hole in the center of each triangle tab.
Line the 1/4" x 8" tab with Scor-Tape.
Remove the adhesive backing and adhere tab to the inside of the opposite end panel, forming a hexagon shaped tube.
Line 5 of the bottom tabs with Scor-Tape.
Place bottle in tube at this time to support the shape of the box as you secure the bottoms tabs. Fold the tab with no Scor-Tape in first.  Then, remove adhesive backing and stick down the rest of the tabs in clockwise fashion.
Thread ribbon through the punched holes in the triangle tabs and tie a bow.
Embellish the finished wine bottle box as desired.
I stamped a simple tag with some silver cording to hand around the neck of the bottle. It can personalized for the occasion or for the recipient. The possibilities are endless for this type of project.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Mid Challenge Tutorial

This fabulous project was from one of team members in our current challenge and we wanted for you to be able to create it yourself so we have the tutorial for you.

When I was a little girl my grandmother used to make an Egg Hunt. I had to look all over the house (and garden - if the weather was OK) for hidden sweets.
Therefore, I decided to prepare a card with storage unit for sweets. You can put your favorite sweets or a small gift in a small drawer.
Let's start with an easel.
Mark the 12" paper on 12.5 cm. If your scoring table doesn't have row at this point - slide the paper about 0.5 cm to the right and select the row of 13cm.
Turn the card 90o and mark at 12.5, 19 and 25cm rows. Cut out the unnecessary part. Pay attention to the creasing rows 19 and 25 cm doesn't exceed 12.5 cm row.
Now go back to your previous position and mark on rows 14,5, 27 and 29cm.
Cut out unnessesary parts.
Now it's time for a drawer - we need cut square with a side length of 20.2 cm. Score each side on 2 and 4 cm.
Cut out unnessesary parts.
Now it's time to adhesive with your Scor-Tape and decorate your card as desired.
Products used:
Scoring board - Scor-Pal
Adchesive - Scor-Tape
Cardstock - plain white 250g
Scrap paper - 7dots Studio Illumination, Galeria papieru
Cutting dies - RosyDot AC2, Magnolia Summer Foliage
Additions: handmade flowers

Mid Challenge Tutorial

This fabulous project was from one of team members in our current challenge and we wanted for you to be able to create it yourself so we have the tutorial for you.
We have Lois giving you a treat this month and we hope you enjoy it.

I've made another project for this month's Scor-Pal "More than One Score" Anything Goes challenge, a project which could be given as a gift -- a set of four cards and a matching box in which to store them.



Supplies used for the box are minimal:

Cardstock – 1 piece 8 ¾” x 7 ½” and 1 piece 7 7/8” x 6 5/8”
Coordinating designer paper
Scor-Pal
Scor-Tape
Scissors

To make your box, place the 7 7/8” x 6 5/8” cardstock at the top of the Scor-Pal, with the long edge along the top.  Score at the 1” groove.  Repeat on all four sides. 
 Box lid

Then place the 8 ¾” x 7 ½” piece of cardstock at the top of the Scor-Pal, with the long edge along the top.  Score at the 1 ½” groove.  Repeat on all four sides.
 Box bottom

Fold all the score lines on both pieces.

Using your scissors, cut notches at the corners of both the top and bottom pieces using the score lines as a guide, as shown.

Apply Scor-tape to the corner pieces, as shown.


Remove the protective paper from the Scor-tape and fold in the sides, as shown.


Decorate your box as desired.  I cut strips of patterned paper to fit the top and sides of the lid of the box and added some ribbon, which was adhered to the lid with Scor-tape.  No patterned paper would be necessary for the bottom of the box. 



Your box should hold four or five A2-sized cards with envelopes.

Be sure to check out the Scor-Pal blog for the challenge, complete a "more-than-one-score" project and upload it to the blog.  You could win a $20 gift certificate to the Scor-Pal store.
