Treat Box Tutorial


Hello friends!

I'm back with a friendly reminder that you still have a couple of weeks to participate in the challenge this month at the Scor-Pal blog... you could be our monthly winner!

This month, the challenge is 'The Heat of Summer'. As always, you must include more than one score, and follow along with our fun theme. Be sure to check out the blog to see what our talented Design Team members have shared!

My project this month was very simple. Most of you know that I've had a wicked 'bug' since the end of June. I'm beginning to feel human again, but now we are in the middle of a MOVE!  Moving is not for sissies, and move is definitely a four letter word...lol.  We've been in our beautiful home on our beautiful hillside for over 32 years. We've accumulated a lot of stuff...

Anyway!  Here's what I created for the challenge:




And here is how I did it!


You need two pieces of cardstock.

Outside Cover = 3.25” x 11”
Score with long side at top of your score board at 5.75” and 6.25”
Decorate front as desired.

Inside ‘Box’ = 3.25” x 5”
Score on all four sides at 1”
On two long sides, cut on score lines, cutting in only to the fold line.
Angle cut your box ‘tabs’ for a smoother fit.
Assemble box, adhere to bottom of cover, and fill with goodies!
Punch hole(s) in top as desired for closure.
(My punches are all packed, so I grabbed a ribbon scrap and stapled this sample closed)

For this project, I used my Scor-Pal Eighths, & 1/2" Scor-Tape.

Thanks for looking! 


I hope to see your summer creations in our Heat of Summer Scor-Pal challenge!

We also have a ton of inspiration on our Projects on the Scor-Pal website and also on our Pinterest Board to help you get creative!Challenge at Scor-Pal! 

Happy June!

Scor-Pal - The Heat of Summer Challenge

Hi everyone!

It's summer in Missouri. Hot and humid, but...That's okay with me, as I'm always cold!

It's time for a new challenge on the Scor-Pal blog - 'The Heat of Summer'. Creations need to include more than one fold, and 'The Heat of Summer' theme.  

As you know, I've been a bit 'under the weather', so my creativity for today had to be something easy peasy!


Here is my project for today:




This cute little box is holding life saver candies! Pretty cute, right?
I'm hoping the recipient will like it!

If you check back here on the 15th, I'll show you how to make these!

Hello, and an update!

Hello out there!

Just thought I'd pass along an update on things here in our crazy world...

Have had chest x-rays two weeks in a row, and still have active pneumonia in both lungs. However, the bloodwork looks like there is nothing left in bloodstream or urine, so there is a bit of improvement.  I can definitely do more than a month ago, but still tire quickly.

In the midst of this crazy illness, the packing has begun, slowly but surely. I get to a few things each day, and we hope to be able to send a load of non-necessary items over to the new house on Thursday, via our movers. 

Hopefully, things will be back to normal in a few weeks, and I'll feel like creating again!

Thanks for the cards, emails, and texts from local peeps - it's so nice to have so many great friends!!!

Hugs and smiles,

Patti J.

Taking a break...

Wow!

A lot has happened since I last posted.

We bought a home in town, after being in our beautiful country home for 32 years. This brought mountains of paperwork, as you can imagine.

Then, I spent some time in the hospital with a strange form of pneumonia. I'm still very weak. If I get through one small task, I have to take a nap.

We will close on the new home on the 12th. The work begins on the new home, getting it ready to move into. Once that's done, clean up and repairs begin on our country home.

Anyway, I will probably be popping in and out from time to time, but first priority for me is getting my health back. I was apparently a very sick gal.

I will, of course try to keep up with my Scor-Pal requirements after June!

Time for a nap!

Hugs to you all,

Patti J.

Scor-Pal Mid Month Tutorial

It's already mid-June!  Where did this month go?

It's my turn to share a mid-month tutorial with you.
I had seen something like this done on Pinterest with jelly jars, and thought it would be fun to adapt measurements for some pretty little candles that I found at Wal-Mart for about $1 each.

Let's get started on this quick and easy gift idea!

Gather up your Scor-Pal, scissors, and Scor-Tape.


Cut 3 pieces of cardstock. I used a glitter pink because I liked the sparkle!
Cut 2 pieces at: 10.25" x 2.75"
Cut one piece at: 8.25" x 10.5" - Score the long side at 2.75" and 7.75".
Score the short side at 2.75" and 5.5".


Cut in to the fold lines on both of the long sides, and snip the two outer 'tabs' just a bit for easy alignment.

Turn your cardstock over, and apply Scor-Tape to the tabs.

Remove tape liner - fold and adhere tabs to inside to create box.

Your two smaller pieces will look like this after they are scored.

 Flip them over, and apply tape.

Carefully adhere the two pieces, wrong sides together ONLY ON THE SECTIONS WITHOUT SCORE LINES, and using a punch or die of your choice, create a 'handle' opening.
Now, fold your two remaining flaps (each with two score lines) out to create a T.
Remove tape liner, and gently position the bottom of the T into the bottom of the box.
Remove the tape liner from the sides of the T and adhere them to the sides of the box.

Here is what your finished box looks like.

Add your candles, decorate your box as desired, and...

Voila!  A fun little gift package for someone special!

Thanks for stopping by today!
