Scor-Pal Mid-Month Tutorial

Hi there, crafty friends!

I'm here today with a photo tutorial for these crazy fun, super tiny little gift bags.
When finished, they stand 1 7/8" tall, and are 1.25" square, and hold 2 Hugs or Kisses.
I cannot take credit for the design, but I'm sorry to say that I don't recall whose design it was!

Here are the supplies you will need:

Scor-Pal (I used Scor-Pal Eighths), Scor-Tape, (I used 3/8" tape) Scissors, Hole Punch, Twine

and...patterned paper.
You can use cardstock, but these bags are so tiny that paper actually works best.

Cut your paper to 5.5" x 3"
Score the long side at: 1.25", 2.5", 3.75", and 5"
Score the short side at: 1"

Remove the small section at the bottom, and trim your tab at a bit of an angle.

Cut on each of your fold lines, cutting only up to the 1" fold line.
Mitre the back and two side tabs in a bit, but leave the tab on the front as is.

Add your Scor-Tape to your little flap, and create your box!


 Here's what your box looks like. Now you can see the three angled tabs better.

Add Scor-Tape to your 'front' box flap.

Fold in the three angled tabs, and secure them with the 'front' tab.

Add two Hershey's Hugs or Kisses (or another tiny candy)

After your goodies are inside, gently pinch in your two sides.

Holding tightly, punch two holes for your ribbon or twine.

Add twine and/or decorate as desired!

 Here are the finished bags - perfect for carrying in your purse to give friends, postal workers, etc.

 Easter and/or spring...

For your Valentine...

St. Patrick's Day...

The possibilities are endless!
Give them a try, and have fun!!!

Thanks for stopping by,

Lots of Chocolate Bars!

Howdy, friends!

I made up some fun candy wraps for the small sized candy bars, and thought I'd share them today. They can be decorated for any occasion, and you get 10 of the bars for just over one dollar, so what a bargain!

I'd love to take credit for this design, but I found it on Angie Juda's blog:

Here's the 'recipe' for success!

Cardstock Base: 7.5" x 3.5"
Cut and score on long side at: 1.25", 1 5/8", 2 7/8" 3.25"
Designer paper: Cut one at 3.25" x 3.25" 
Cut one at 3.25" x 1"

Once you score the cardstock, you will know where to attach your Designer Papers, and where to adhere your Scor-Tape (or adhesive of choice).

Have fun with these - Once pieces were cut, I made ALL of these in 2 hours while in my recliner with my feet up!

Something New!

I'm pretty excited! 

Once in a while, something new comes along, and it's just too much fun NOT to try!
A wonderful lady and long-time blogging friend of mine, Joan Fricker, is a demonstrator for Chalk Couture. She sent me a sample to try, and now, I'm hooked - have been working up an order for more supplies!  If you want to give this a try, go HERE and see how easy it is to get Joan to hook you up with a fun sample!

Here's what I made:

Thanks for stopping by - hope that you'll give this fun new product a try!

Goldfish Gertie and Goldfish Gunther

Hi there!'s been busy here again. 

It's 'that' time of year. This old woman has dug out all of last years papers, receipts, etc., and is getting them ready to go to our accountant for tax purposes. From what I've been reading so far, we need to be very afraid! LOADS of things that in the past have been deductions, apparently are no longer.  Sigh. We shall see, right?

Anway, I thought I'd share a fun card today. There is a challenge for February on the Whimsy Stamps Facebook page that encourages us to use non-Valentine images to create a Valentine card. So...I decided that Goldfish Gertie and Goldfish Gunther would be fun to work with. These are digi images, so I printed them on a piece of cardstock, colored the images, drew and colored a heart behind them, and applied some sweet 'bubbles' that I purchased from Ink Road Stamps.You see that they look pink - that's because I was NOT thinking when I colored with Copic markers, and then applied the bubbles with Glossy Accents! The Glossy Accents reacted with the red copic color and voila! Very unique bubbles, for sure!

Here's the card:

Hope you like it!
Thanks for looking!

Anything Goes at Scor-Pal

Hello friends!

The Scor-Pal team is back! We had a month off, and our Mo-Jo is very excited to be creating again! The February Challenge at Scor-Pal is 'Anything Goes', and we are starting things off nice and easy! Our projects this month will all be easy to do.  Hope you will join in with us this month! Remember that while the theme is 'Anything Goes', your project should include more than one score!

Other exciting Scor-Pal news....we will be having a Design Team call this month! Be sure to hurry over to the Scor-Pal blog and check out the details!!!

Here's what I made:

I'd been seeing these adorable little treat holders here and there on the internet, and decided to give them a try. I created for Valentine's Day, St. Pat's Day, and Easter, so you could see how cute they are for any occasion.  Just look at how tiny they are - each one holds 2 Hershey's Kiss Candies, and the finished measurements are: 2" tall, 1.25" wide, and 1.25" deep.

I think I'll be making a lot of these for special folks! I like to carry treats into the Post Office, favorite stores, etc., so these will be easy to share!

Check back on the 15th of the month for a photo tutorial on how these were created!

We hope to see your creations in our More Than One Fold, 'Anything Goes - Start off EasyScor-Pal challenge!

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

Happy December everyone!
