So I got a new toy, and while Stampin' Up! does not carry it although with all the letter pouring in from Demonstrators, who knows maybe someday they will! It would certainly help many demonstrators and customers! I thought I would play with it a bit and make some stuff. So here is a new tutorial using the Scor-Pal. I am calling this the Tall Treats Box...
Scor-Pal and Scoring tool that comes with it.
Paper in 2 colors of your choice, of course you can embelich with more colors if you do so wish.
Word Window Punch
3/16" Corner Rounder
Snail or Sticky Tape
Clear Acetate Sheet
1. Cut an 8.5x11 sheet in half to make 2 8.5x5.5 sheets as you would to make a card
2. Line up your long edge at the 3" groove. Score at the 4.25 groove and the 5.5 groove.
3. Move the 5.5 score line so that it lines up on the 3" groove, your long edge should now line up on the .5 groove.
4. Score again at the 4.25 groove, and the 5.5 groove. You should now have 4 score lines.
5. Turn your sheet 1/4 turn so that your long edge is now lined up across the top.
6. Line up your short edge at the 3" groove, score at the 4.25 groove.
7. Turn your sheet around so that you can now line up your other short edge, line this one up at the 0 point, or right in the corner. Score at the .5 groove.
8. Move the .5 score line that you just made to the 3" groove, and score at the 4.25 groove.
9. Now that all your scoring is done, its time to cut, if it makes it easier for you, put an x in all the boxes that you are going to cut off. When cutting, your are going to cut the score marks along the short edges, just up to the crossing line. Here is a diagram of what to cut and what to score. The black marks are the score lines, and the red marks are the lines you will cut. I also included x' so that you can see what is cut right off.
10. After you have cut all the lines needed, you may also round the corners of the tab so that it makes it easier to insert, this is the top of your box and is not glued, so that the recipient can open their treat box.
11. Here is what it should look like after it is cut.
12. Decorate outside as wanted with a background set, or anything else you wish. At this point you will also create your word window punch window as below, to do this start with punching out the middle of the long side without the tab, then move the punch along both ways and continue punching until you feel the hole is large enough.
13. put glue or sticky tape all around your newly created window. cut a piece of acetate larger then the window so that it will fit where you put the glue or sticky tape. Put it in place.
14. Glue along the long tab and then attach it to the other side of the box to glue the box closed.
15. on the end of the box that doesnt have the tab, glue all 4 sides down to close the bottom of the box.
16. add your treats to the box, this could be smarties, or jelly beans or anything else you wish.
17. close the top and decorate as you wish adding a tag if you wish as well.
Here is the finished product...
