Scor-Pal Challenge - Mid-month reminder!

Hello friends,

Today, we are midway through the month, so I thought I'd pop back here and remind you that there is a challenge going on at the Scor-Pal Blog.  This month, the challenge was to make an interactive card. If you remember, I made this card:

I thought I'd share dimensions with you today for the little 'tissue box', so that you can
duplicate this technique on your next get well or thinking of you card.

Here is how I did it:

Using your Scor-Pal, score your A2 card at 4.25".

Stamp any desired sentiment on the inside top panel of your card. On my card, I stamped 
'get well soon'.  Next, decorate card front as desired.

Cut your tissue box to 6.25" x 3", and score on the long side at:
1.5", 3", 4.5", and 6".

Your box is beginning to take shape!

Add 1/4" Scor-Tape to your tab.

Determine which panel will be the top of your box, find an oval die, 
and create an opening for your tissue.

Assemble your box.
Add two strips of 1/2" Scor-Tape to the side that will be the back, and
a strip to the box bottom.

Adhere your tissue box to your card at the fold line. Open and close a few
times to be sure everything works.  Grab about 1/2 piece of tissue, and 
work with it until you like the way it looks in your box. Mine was pretty
firm, and needed no adhesive, but you may find that you want some. 

That's that - easy peasy, right???  Hope you'll give it a try!

The challenge at the Scor-Pal blog goes through the end of the month, and there
are very few entries so far.  YOU could win some shopping fun at the Scor-Pal store!
Link up your interactive card - make something fun that flips, flaps, or pops!

Thanks for stopping by,

Patti J.
