Back to School Tutorials with Scor-Pal with Katie Tate

Katie from Both Sides of The Paper and it's my turn to share a tutorial for "Back to School" week at Scor-Pal!
I decided to go with a backpack style gift bag, perfect for a little gift for your favorite teacher to start their year off right.

Project Recipe:
Scoring Tool - Scor-Pal
Adhesive - Scor-Tape
Paper - The Grade School Stack by DCWV
Ribbon - Really Reasonable Ribbon

The backpack starts with cardstock 12" by 8". On the 12" side score at 5" and 7". Rotate to the 8" side and score at 1", 2", 6" and 7"

Burnish all score lines and snip on the flaps as in the photo

Score on the center of the flaps and bend inwards as in the photo.

Remove one flap from the each side (opposite sides) on the long side as they make the sides too stiff to fold. Add Scor-Tape to the flaps as shown.

Remove the cover on the Scor-Tape and adhere the sides to form the gift bag.

To make the flap use a piece of cardstock 5" by 4", score at 1" and 3" on the 5" side. (I will admit I would make this a little shorter next time but wanted to show exactly how this one was made). I would have scored at 1" and 2" and made the length 3" not 4". Angle the corners as shown in the photo.

The straps are made from 6" by 1" scored at 1/2" and 5 1/2"

Add Scor-Tape to the 1/2" flaps

Add the straps and then decorate to your style.

I made 2 slits in the flap and the backpack and threaded ribbon through to form a closure.
I hope you enjoyed this and have enjoyed all the projects this week, if you have missed any please go and check them all out.

Back to School Tutorials with Scor-Pal with Abby Henderson

Hi Friends! Abby here with ScrappinAbby. This week at Scor-Pal it's all about Back To School projects and tutorials. I want to share a tutorial with you today that is for my daughter who is going to be a Freshman this year. This is her first year to have a full size locker so I wanted to create something that not only could decorate her locker with but have it be functional as well.  I made a locker pen and notepad holder...
Let me share with you the quick and easy steps to create this holder... Select the card stock you want to use for the project then cut it to 12" x 6". Place it on your Scor-pal and make a score mark at the following measurements: 1", 5 1/2", 6 1/2", 11"
Turn the paper and make one score mark at 5"
Once you've made all of your score marks, you'll make the cuts shown in the photo below. This will allow you to fold the box when you assemble it...
Next you'll fold along all of your score lines...
Apply some Scor-Tape and then you're ready to assemble your holder...
 Once the holder is assembled it's time for some creative play and embellishment....
I thought it was fun to incorporate the fact that she's a Freshman this year along with her class year. All I need to do now is put some magnet tape on the backside and she can easily hang this on her locker door. When I showed it to her she loved it which is all I wanted. I hope you enjoyed my tutorial today and that I inspired you to reach for your Scor-Pal and create something fun for your kids heading back to school.  Happy Crafting!!

Back to School Tutorials with Scor-Pal - Janice Whiting

Hi, everyone!  Today I have a fun teacher gift for Back to School!  I've created a little gift caddy that you can put treats and supplies in.

1. Using your Scor-Pal, score a 12x12 piece of cardstock at 4" and 8", then turn the paper and score at those increments again as shown below.

2. Turn paper upside down, then place a corner facing the 6" mark and score down as shown below.  Score each corner in this way.

3. Fold at the horizontal and vertical score line, then turn over and fold at the diagonal score lines so that the caddy begins to take shape.

4. Punch holes in the corners.

5. Decorate and embellish then thread ribbon through each punched corner and tie into a bow.  

I plan on filling mine with some yummy treats and a few teacher supplies like sharpie markers and post its. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  :)

Back to School Tutorials with Scor-Pal with Steph Ackerman

Hi everyone Steph Ackerman here with a fun project I think any girl would love to use for school.   Add a post it note pad inside with a pen or pencil and note taking is now a breeze.

Using a template I created, I cut the cardstock and the coordinating pattern paper.
Score 3 lines in the center of the cardstock and then mountain/valley fold.

Cut the pattern paper into 2 pieces.
Fussy cut the pattern paper so it is slightly smaller than the cardstock.
Adhere it to the cardstock.

Create the handles from a 12" x 1 3/4" piece of cardstock.
Score the length and fold in half.
Add Scor tape down the center and adhere together.

Add Scor tape along the back edge and add the handles to the purse. 
Create a front panel and adhere it to the inside back on top of the handles. 

Add pattern paper inside to cover the added panel.
Punch along the bottom edge for some visual interest.

Add a button to the flap and you are done.  Just adhere the post it note stack inside.

And another view.

I'm thinking this would be a fun gift for a teacher - I think she'd love it, don't you?

Thanks for stopping by today.

Back to School Tutorials with Scor-Pal with Toni Storie

Hello Crafty Friends!  We are getting back to school with Scor-Pal this week and you do not want to miss a single bit of it.  Today, I have a fun little pencil box for you!  With a handful of scores, a snip here and there and the ever essential Scor-Tape, you will have a happy little container for pencils!  Let's get started:
For this project, you will need:
  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Tape
  • 4" x 9" piece of card stock
  • 7" x 7" piece of card stock
  • Paper snips
  • Stamps
  • Ink
  • Embellishments
Place the 4" x 9" piece of card stock into the Scor-Pal with the 4" side against the top fence.  Score at 1" and score again at 3". 
Turn the card stock 180 degrees so that your 9" side of the card stock is against the top fence.  Score at 1" and score again at 8".
Crease all of the scores and then trim tabs in 1" on the long side of the card stock.  The cuts will be on the 1" and 8" score lines.  Trimming a slight triangle makes for a clean edge. 
Turn card stock over and adhere Scor-Tape to each tab. 
Remove adhesive backing and fold tabs in to create the box. 
If you will be stamping on your box cover, you may want to do that now with your 7" x 7" piece of card stock.  If not, place the card stock into the Scor-Pal and score at 1 1/4", 2 1/4", 4 1/4" and 5 1/4". 
Crease all of scores on your box cover.
With the panels of the box cover defined clearly with the score lines, I stamped on the front of the box cover.
Turn the cover over and apply Scor-Tape to the first 1 1/4" panel, shown on the far right.
Remove adhesive backing and adhere box cover around the box base. 
Here is one more view of the finished pencil box, all closed up.
I'm so glad you made it all the way through the tutorial.  I hope it has been helpful.  Have a wonderfully creative day!
