Scor-Pal and Fancy Pants

Everyone loves a party! This year for New Years, we are going to a game night with the kids and I wanted to bring along a little something for the adults.

Here is the supplies I used:

a sheet of acetate
Fancy Pants Country Boutique Collection Kit
Magnolia Tag and Swirly Heart Die
Spellbinder Die
Martha Stewart punch
Maya Roads fabric flowers

Here is a close up of the top and the tag that I made

and the label on the bottom

First start with a piece of 9" x 9" black corrugated paper, score at 3" and 6" and turn the paper 90 degrees and score again at 3" and 6". 

Adhere the box together using Scor-Tape.

The next photo is a little hard to see because it is the acetate.  Cut a piece of acetate 11" x 10", score 1/2, 3 3/4", 6 1/2 and 9 1/2"  make sure you score them really well, it will be easier to fold them.  For the back piece cut a piece of acetate 2 7/8" x 11".

Fold the box together as shown below.

Using Scor-Tape secure the acetate to the corrugated box. 

For the top, use a 5" x 5" piece of paper and score 1" on each side.

To make a circle in the middle for the wine bottle to peak out of, use a cutting template and cut a circle in the middle.  I used Creative Memories cutting system using the #4 circle with the red blade.

Now decorate to make it look festive!
Happy New Year!

Coordinations & Scor-Pal

Hi Everyone!!  This week  Scor-Pal is hopping along with Core'dinations to bring you a fun filled week of great projects! 

Lisa A. here, today I made a simply and easy gift card holder and vintage looking snowman gift tags for your last minute gifts.  These would be great for teacher gifts, secret santa gifts or for anyone on your gift lists!   I also made a quick card.


Core'dinations Vintage card stock
white and sparkly red card stock
Hot Glue
black jewels
various punches and embossing folders

Let's start with the gift card holder.  I saw this idea for a gift card holder at a scrapbook store here in town and went home to make one of my own right away!

Start with a piece of 5 1/2" x 6 3/4" core'dinations vintage red, score at 1 1/2" on each side.

Assemble box with Scor-Tape

For the top start with a white piece of card stock 5 3/4" x 4 1/2", punch around the edges, you really don't need to be perfect with this since you will fold the sides in to create the top of the box.  Score at 1" on all sides.  Using a punch, punch a snowflake on the left bottom of the lid.  Assemble the top using Scor-Tape.

Cut a piece of sparkly card stock 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" and adhere to the underside of the snowflake.

Next, we are going to make the snowman rosette.  Using a 1 1/2" x 12" piece of vintage Core-dinations card stock, score every 1/2", turn the card stock over and score again starting at 1/4" and every 1/2" from there.  Fold the card stock into an accordian, using the indented score mark as your mountains and raised up score mark as your valley.  Attach the end of the card stock together with Scor-Tape. 

Using a 1 3/4" punch, punch a circle and hot glue it to the back of the rosette.

For the snowman's hat, use a 1 3/4" x 6" piece of vintage black Core'dinations card stock and score every 1/2", turn the card stock over and score again starting at 1/4" and every 1/2" from there.  Fold the card stock into an accordian, using the indented score mark as your mountains and raised up score mark as your valley. 

Gather the bottom of the card stock together and hot glue to the snowman's head.

Using a piece of vintage black Core'dinations card stock, cut a piece 3/4" wide for the brim of the hat.  Don't forget to sand all of the edges with sandpaper to give it that vintage look.  Cut a carrot nose out of vintage orange Core'dinations card stock and adhere it to your snowman.  Add black jewels for eyes.  Repeat three times for three tags.  Don't forget to stamp a message on the back!

Now we are going to make a little gift box for your gift tags.  Starting with an 8 1/2" x 6 1/2"  piece of vintage green Core'dinations card stock, score 2 1/2" on all sides.  Cut 1 3/4" from the corners as shown below.

Punch a snowflake on the front of the box.

Sand your edges and adhere box together with Scor-Tape.

Thanks for joining us this week.  I hope you got a lot of inspiration to make to homemade this year!
