Scor-Pal and GlueArts Just Make Us Happy!

There is a crisp feel to the air...

Pumpkins and fall decor is being brought outside..

Trees are starting to change and temperatures are starting to cool off!

Which makes us happy!! So does the two projects shared today! Designer Audrey Pettit used the Scor-Pal to create a beautiful, handmade gift box! How amazing is that?! And Designer Lesley Langdon used the Scor-Buddy to give dimension by dry embossing a design onto her background to mimic the pattern on the ice cream cone! What a great idea!!

1. To create your gable box, you need one sheet of 8.5 x 11 cardstock. Score the long (11") side of cardstock at 1/2", 3 1/2", 5 3/4", and 8 3/4".

2. Score the 8.5" side at 3" and 6 1/2".

3. Fold the bottom of the card stock (the portion with the short scored sections) under and stamp across the exposed area of card stock, if you wish. I added stamped and embossed fall leaves to my box, but it looks equally cute left plain.

4. Cut each score line up to the middle, intersecting score line to create flaps as shown. On one edge of the card stock, you’ll have 1/2” flaps. Cut off the two 1/2" flaps on the ends, leaving the center flap.

5. Now it's time to add adhesive. Believe it or not, Glue Arts Ribbon Adhesive is perfect for this job. Not only is it super strong, which you need to hold together your box, but the liner is extremely helpful in this step.

Place Ribbon Adhesive on the inside flaps as shown here to create interior sections of the box. Leave the liner on the adhesive.

6. Place Ribbon Adhesive on the 1/2" flap. Be sure to place the adhesive strip on the front (stamped) side. Leave the liner on the adhesive.

7. Create handles for your box using a punch on the larger two top rectangles, as shown. Use a corner rounder to round the handle corners.

8. Peel the liner from the 1/2" flap on the side of the box , and fold the box into shape so that the ends meet the adhesive. If necessary, fold the flaps out of your way.

9. Peel the liner from the side flaps and adhere them to the interior sides of the box. This adds to the stability of the finished box.

10. For the bottom of the box, fold in the two smaller flaps. Peel the liner from one of the larger flaps, and secure it to the folded smaller flaps. Peel the liner from the second larger flap, and seal the box.

11. Now have fun decorating and embellishing your finished box. I added layered burlap, patterned paper, and trims around the center, and dressed it up with a fun rosette, decorative brad, and embossed leaves. Glue Arts Glue Melt Sticks and Extreme Adhesive Squares hold everything in place.

Rosettes are a breeze to make with the ScorPal tool. Simply cut a strip of paper, and score at 1/4" intervals down the length of the strip. Accordion-pleat the paper, adhere ends into a ring, push down to flatten, and glue to a scrap circle. Glue Arts Glue Gun and Glue Melt Sticks makes adhering your rosette quick and easy.

Tie the handle up with some pretty trims and perhaps a tiny tag, and you are ready to fill with your favorite treats.
