Flowers and Butterfly Box

It's a new year with new challenges at Scor-Pal.   This month's challenge is all about organization.  What can you create to help your organize your craft supplies (or anything else you desire).

I've created a cute box that can hold anything in my craft room.  But, I'm thinking it's a wonderful gift box - just fill it with candy or even some jewelry.  Think of the seasonal type boxes you can create.

Cut one piece of cardstock 6" x 10 1/2".
Place long edge on Scor-Pal and score at 3".
Rotate and score at 3" and 7 1/2".

To create the diagonal scores, line cardstock along one of the grooves and score the outer boxes.
Score 1" away from the first score line on one side as shown below.

Cut away the smallest triangles and the rectangular pieces at the opposite side.

Cut in along the score lines to the center score and fold on all score lines.
Add Score Tape and assemble.

Cut another piece of cardstock 7" x 10 1/2" and score at 3" and 7 1/2".
Rotate and score at 3" and 6" (the flap will be used to join the box).

Create the diagonal scores as noted above.

Cut in on the score lines.
Fold on all score lines and assemble with Score Tape.

Create 3 trays by cutting 3 pieces of cardstock each 5 3/8" x 5 3/8".
Score at 1 3/8" and 4 1/4".
Rotate and score at 1 3/8" and 4 1/4".
Cut in on all 4 corners and place Scor-Tape on the panels.
Form to create the trays.


 Adhere the two sides of the box together by placing Scor-Tape on the flap and aligning the 2 pieces.

Adhere the trays in place using Score Tape to two sides of the box.
Cut pattern paper and additional cardstock to fit your box.
Decorate as desired. 
I added ribbon around the box using die cut panels to secure the ribbon.
Butterflies was stamped, embossed and die cut, then added to the panels.

Please stop by the Scor-Pal blog and see everyone's projects.

Thanks for stopping by today.


 I've entered this project in the Simon Says Challenge

Hi everyone, I have a post up today on the So Suzy Stamp blog.

I've used the Chatter stamp - it is so much fun with that old fashioned telephone and the assorted words surrounding it.  I simply spritzed the background and once dry, stamped the image on top. 

For my next card, I cut apart the image and put it back together on a smaller sized card.  It looks just as good.
Be sure to stop by the So Suzy blog for lots of inspiration and fun new stamps.

Certified Homemade

It's a new challenge at Cornish Heritage Farms, and  Amber  has asked us to create a snow themed card, after all we are still in winter mode.

In New York, we are experiencing the coldest couple of weeks on record - lots of snow, wind and ice.  Brrrr!!!!  So, this challenge was perfect.

The chipboard snowman was covered with gesso to give him the appearance of snow and several snowflakes from the Night Before Christmas stamp set were stamped about him in brown ink.

I thought the sentiment, also from the Night Before Christmas, was perfect.

Perfect Tag Pouch

Hi everyone.  I've got a post on the ETI blog today.  Hope you check it out - it's an amazing dragonfly tag.

I used the EasyMold Silicone Putty to create the reuseable dragonfly mold.  Check out this post for all the details.

Below, I'm posting the tutorial for creating the pouch to hold my tags.

Cut cardstock 5" x 11"
Using  the Scor-Pal, score at 4 1/4" and 4 1/2"
Rotate and score at 1/2" and 4 1/2" 
Fold on all scored lines
Cut out the little squares created by all the scores

Cut a white panel to fit the front of the pouch
Using Ann Butler's Wavy Art Screen, ink with Limelight Crafter's Ink
Using Ann Butler's Stars Art Screen, rub Limelight Iridescents around the stars
Using a baby wipe, lightly rub over the Iridescents to blend and create shading.

Rub Orchid Iridescents through the Stars Art Screen, and again use a baby wipe over the design.

Blend the colors toward the center using a baby wipe so the colors overlap.

Add Sheer Cooper Iridescents around the panel
Using a new Cornish Heritage Farms stamp set - We Remember - select the "letter" stamp and stamp it in black ink over the design
Lightly run a baby wipe across the panel to remove and smudge some of the words

Sprinkle Pearl Iridescent Powder on top of the panel and move it around with your finger.

 And the finished tags into the pouch.  These Iridescents are absolutely amazing! 

So what do you think?

Etched Candy Jar

Hi everyone, I've been working with a fun etchall product today.  It's called   etchall dip'n etch liquid and this product allows you to created frosted glass!

It is so easy to create frosted glass using etchall Dip 'N Etch liquid.  I wanted to etch a mason jar, so I first removed the top and then placed Stampendous Class A Peel stickers around the jar. 

After measuring the required amount of dip 'n etch in a small container, I placed the mason jar in the container and allowed it to sit for approximately 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, I removed the mason jar.  Then, after removing the stickers, I rinsed and dried the jar and these lovely images showed.
I added some ribbon around the top of the jar and around the lid and then placed candy inside. 


A simple coordinating flower finished off the jar.
I'm thinking these would be lovely as a party favor, don't you?

What will you etch today?
