Welcome to the Scor-pal and Little Darlingsblog hop! Today we are featuring some fun projects using the Scor-pal/Scor-buddy along with the newly released Fall/Halloween Little Darlings stamps. We are the very first stop for the hop so you are in the right place!
Be sure to go all the way to the end until you get to the Love to Stamp blog. Scor-pal will be giving away a Scor-buddy to one person randomly chosen from all comments left. The more comments you leave the better your chances of winning. You can also increase your chances of winning a Scor-buddy in other ways as well. You can get one additional entry for becoming a fan on Facebook and another for becoming a follower of our blog (links to the right!) After doing that leave a 2nd/3rd comment letting us know you did. The winner will be announced here and on out Fan Page Monday, 10/17.
Here is a sneak peek of what you'll see from the Scor-pal designers that are participating:
It's time for yet another Scor-pal Designer Challenge. The challenge for this month is simply two words- "Sweet Treats". How you interpret that is totally up to you, just as long as you use your Scor-pal or Scor-buddy. Link up your projects using Mr Linky and one entry will be chosen as our December Designer Challenge Guest Designer. Also, don't forget you can also post a link to your project on the Scor-pal Fan Page for a chance to win a Kindle! Entry deadline for both challenges is October 31. All entries must be newly created and can be entered to no more than 2 other challenges.
Time: 5~10 minutes (Decoration time varies)
Supplies: Scor-Pal, Scor-tape, Scissors and Ribbon
Letter-Size Cardstock or Patterned Paper (8-1/2’’ x 11’’)
Ruler, Pencil and Eraser
Optional: Stamps, Punches, or Decorative Scissors
Step 1: Short Side at top, score at 2’’, 4’’, 6’’ and 8’’.
Step 2: Long Side at top, score at 1-1/2’’, 2-1/4’’, 2-3/4’’, 3-1/2’’, 7-1/2’’, 8-1/4’’, 8-3/4’’ and 9-1/2’’.
Step 3: Stamp the page (Optional) I white embossed the flowers. Score lines are as marked: Black lines – Mountain Fold; Orange lines – Valley Fold. You can fold them before or after Step 4, as shown in Step 5
Step 4: Short side at top against right corner, ½’’ strip on the right. Put ruler at 4-1/4’’, 6-1/4’’, 8-1/4’’, 10-1/4’’ and 10-3/4’’, mark as shown. (Red lines indicate some pre-scored lines.)
Step 5: Fold as shown
Long side at top, vertical lines folded:
Short side at top, vertical lines folded:
Step 6: Cut the edge notches:
Step 7: Fold and cut the other notches as shown:
And you will get this when done:
Step 8: Use decorative punches or scissors for the edges (Optional)
Step 9: Add scor-tape to the ½’’ strip and cut the edges as shown:
Step 10: Erase the pencil marks. Remove the liners and form the box.
Step 11: Tie ribbon on one end and put treats in. Tie the other end to finish.
As you can see here, these boxes are BIG! I have a variation at my blog for a 5’’ box body (As the striped one shown in the first photo.) There are so many possibilities for decoration, have fun!
If you want to add a window to the boxes, an Anywhere Punch less than 2” would be the best. Add the window to either one of the middle sections or you will have an edge showing. If you do not mind an edge showing (as the green box shown in the first photo), a normal 1-3/4’’ punch would be great!

Thanks! Happy Crafting!
