Hello! This week the Scor-Pal design team hopped with the gals from Doodlebug …what fun papers to work with!! Today I will be sharing my projects that were featured on the Scor-pal blog. Of course, if you missed this project or any of the other great projects from the Scor-pal team you’ll want to hop on over there and see what’s been going on. Be sure to leave comments on each post from this week for a chance to win some great prizes.
For my first card I decided to make some box pleats with a floral patterned strip. The pleated paper was attached to the cardfront with Scor-Tape on a curve.
I started with a 1 1/2″ x 12″ strip of paper and scored it in alternating increments of 1″ and 1/2″. So, I scored @ 1, 1 1/2, 2 1/2, 3, 4, 4 1/2, 5 1/2, 6, 7, 7 1/2, 8 1/2, 9, 10, 10 1/2, and 11 1/2.
Mountain and Valley fold the strip to form the box pleats. Here’s a side view of what it will look like. (You will repeat a series of mountain / valley / valley / mountain folds).
The card was finished with coordinating paper, stickers, and rub-ons.
For the second card I pleated the paper again…this time I made a simple knife pleat on a larger piece for a background. I love how after I pleated the paper, it still lined up to create complete circles!
I started with a 3 3/4 x 12 inch piece of paper. Again, I used alternating increments of scored lines…this time I used 1″ and 1/4″. So, I scored @ 1, 1 1/4, 2 1/4, 2 1/2, 3 1/2, 3 3/4, etc. Scor-Tape was used across the back to hold the pleats in place and adhere the panel to the card. Some Doodlebug Twine, a brad, additional paper, and rub-ons were added to finish the card.
I also doodled on the flower I punched from the Doodlebug papers. 😉
