This week the Scor-Pal team hopped with the gals from Really Reasonable Ribbon…what fun! 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. Entry deadline in 8am Monday, July 16, so there’s still time.
I made two projects using the Scor-Pal and the fabulous ribbon. First, a card…
I wanted the image and the ribbon to stand out so I did some simple scoring to accent them. The top was scored with lines to create a double border, and then diagonal lines were scored on each corner. The bottom has both vertical and horizontal scored lines.
The bird was paper pieced and his wing was popped with a dimensional. I love the sheer box pleats ribbon and I think it sort of mimics the flower stem. The ribbon was attached with a thin strip of Scor-Tape.
Next, I was just playing around with my Scor-Pal and came up with a flat envelope. The finished size is 5 1/2″ x 7″. It could be used to tuck a card, note, or gift inside (maybe a Hershey bar or two would be nice?)
I started with a piece of 9 x 12 paper. (I saved the 3 x 12 piece to flip over and layer onto the top of the front). Score the 12″ side @ 3 and 8 1/2. Score the 9″ side @ 1/2 and 7 1/2. Cut away the shaded areas as shown below. (Click on the image for a larger view).
Fold the sides in and attach back with Scor-Tape. Fold the bottom up and attach with Scor-Tape. Die cut or punch the edge of the top flap if desired. Fold top flap down and secure with sticky-back velcro. Decorate.
The back will look like this:
The big lace circle on the front was wrapped around to the backside. I used a Magnolia image from the Magnolia-licious store…she’s so cute with her butterfly!
I also used some more awesome ribbon from the Really Reasonable Ribbon store. The layered paper on the top was hand cut in a wavy pattern and a thin strip (half the width of the 1/8″ Scor-Tape) of tape holds the Lime Green Leaves ribbon in place. Love those leaves! I also punched a circle, applied 1/2″ Scor-Tape to cover it, and attached some Yellow Plaid Ruffle ribbon to create a flower.
