Mid Challenge Tutorial

This fabulous project was from one of team members, Lois, in our current challenge and we wanted for you to be able to create it yourself so we have the tutorial for you.

This month's "More Than One Score" challenge on the Scor-Pal blog was 3-D cards, something that I love to make.  For my card, I made a Z Box Pop-Up Card, which was lots of fun to make.  I used some new stamps from Kindred Stamps called Galactic Adventure and combined them with some stamps from an old set from MFP Stamp Shop, which unfortunately is no longer in business.  Star Wars nerd that I am, I had lots of fun making this card.



To make a Z Box Pop-Up Card, cut 2 pieces of blue cardstock, one 4 1/4" x 11" and the other 2 1/8" x 11", scoring them both at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2", as shown.



Fold on score lines in opposite Z-folds, as shown . . .



. . . and glue the narrow one to the front of the card base, as shown.


Using the remaining 2 1/8" x 11" strip, score at 7/8", 3 5/8", 4 1/8", 6 7/8", 7 3/8", and 10 1/8".  Fold as shown.


Apply double-sided adhesive tape to the folds, as shown . . .


. . . and repeat on the other sections on the opposite side.

Remove paper backing from the double-sided adhesive tape and carefully fit the folded strip into the box in the card base.


You can then decorate your card.  Add the patterned paper to the back and front panels.  Cut the sky paper to 4" x 5 1/4" and cut in half (5 1/4" x 2").  Adhere one half to the top of the back panel.  Cut the remaining piece in half (2 5/8" x 2") and add to the right side of the back panel and the top of the front panel.  Cut the other patterned paper to 5 1/4" x 2" and adhere to the bottom of the front panel.

Stamp the images of Han Solo, Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, the rocket, and the planet -- and color with markers.  Carefully fussy-cut the images and attach to the card.  Stamp the sentiments and cut out with a punch -- and adhere as shown.


Here is a close-up of the inside of the pop-up box portion of the card.


And may the Force be with you!!!

Mid Challenge Tutorial

This fabulous project was from one of team members in our current challenge and we wanted for you to be able to create it yourself so we have the tutorial for you.

That's right!  We are in the middle of July and ready for the mid-month tutorial.  This month's Scor-Pal featured challenge is a "more than one score with a die cut" theme.    I'm hostessing and have made a fun slider box with die cuts on top and bottom.

Here's a picture of the slider box opened up just a bit so that you can see the box base.  The box measures 4" long by 2 3/4" wide by 1" deep.
For this project, you will need:
  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Tape
  • One 6 3/4" x 8" piece of card stock
  • One 4" x 8" piece of card stock
  • Paper snips
  • Top Note die cut
  • Additional dies for embellishing
  • Additional card stock for embellishing
  • Rhinestones for embellishing
  • Stamps
  • Ink
Place the 6 3/4" by 8" piece of card stock in the Scor-Pal with the 6 3/4" side along the fence.  Score at 1", 2", 4 3/4" and 5 3/4".
Turn card stock 90 degrees so that the 8" side is against the fence. Score at 1", 2", 6" and 7".
Trim away the three outer squares in each corner, as shown.
With paper snips, cut tabs on the 8" side of the card stock.  The picture below shows the tabs.
Burnish all of the score lines.
Adhere Scor-Tape to the outside of the box base.  Also, adhere Scor-Tape to the tabs as shown.
Remove adhesive backing and fold down the 6 3/4" sides.
Remove the adhesive backing and fold in the tabs on both sides
Remove the adhesive backing on the tabs and fold down the last two sides. Here is your box base.
Place the 4" x 8" piece of card stock in the Scor-Pal with the 8" side along the fence.  Score at 1", 3 3/4", 4 3/4" and 7 1/2".  
Burnish all of the scores.
Line the 1/2" tab on the back with Scor-Tape.
Wrap the 4" x 8" scored card stock around the box base.  This now becomes the cover that the base slides into.  
Use your die cuts to embellish your newly constructed slider box.
*Original tutorial modified to fit my own die cuts.  

Thanks for reading all the way through this tutorial and I hope you give this More Than One Score challenge a try!
