Time for a coffee break

Today we have some great projects from the Scor-pal designer Virginia Nebel  perfect for all of the Keurig and Tossimo fans out there.

Here are the steps to create the window box: 

1) Start with a 9 1/4x 9 1/4  inch square and place onto your Scor-pal. Score each side at 1 3/4 inches.

 2) Fold along score lines.  Choose two opposite sides and cut from the outside edge to the corner point where the score lines meet.  Use scor-tape adhesive on the flaps and fold in to form the box.

3) To make the lid with a window in the middle start with a 9 5/16 x 9 5/16 inch square.  Repeat Step 1 and 2 but do not adhere the corner flaps until you create the window.  To make the window, take a 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 square cardstock and centre on the lid and trace with a pencil.  Use scissors to cut out the square window.  Do not worry that your cutting has to be perfect because you can use a border strip to cover the outside window edges.

4) Cut a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 piece of acetate and put thin scor-tap along the edges and adhere acetate over the open square.  Fold in the corner flaps to create the lid.

5) You have just created a window box to fit 9 K-cups snugly and now you can have fun embellishing!

Flip cover: Take a 5 ¾ x 12 inch cardstock, score at 5 ¾ and 11 ½ inches. Adhere the 5 ¾ panels together and use Scor-tape on the ½ inch flap and glue to the side of the box to form the flip cover.

Be sure to stop by this thread in the Scor-pal Forum at Splitcoast Stampers for more great samples!!

Score, Fold, Create!

After much anticipation we are excited to share a peek at what we have been working on over the past several months!!

Stay tuned to the blog and the Scor-pal fan page for details on availability of this exciting new publication.
