Scor-Pal More than One Score Challenge - May Flowers

A new month means a new challenge at More Than One Score at Scor-Pal and this time we are looking for your "May Flowers" themed projects.
You make an "Anything But a Card", a card with a fancy fold, anything as long as it has more than a single score and that you let us know where you used your Scor-Pal in the project.

For mine I am showing a set I made a couple of years ago. I felt sure I'd shared it before but I scoured my blog and couldn't find it, but even after time this is still one of my very favorites and it is perfect for a Mother's day gift
I didn't photograph all the steps when I made it but it was made using the fabulous tutorial that Wendy Weixler shared at Split Coast Stampers, she also shares the template there so you can make one yourself.


Project Recipe:
Scoring Tool - Scor-Pal
Paper - Chloe by 3 Bugs in a Rug
Border Punch - Daisy by Martha Stewart
Ribbon - Michaels
Butterfly Punches - Martha Stewart
Border Die - My Favorite Things
Banner Die - My Favorite Things
Brads - Target








What is great about using a paper with both sides patterned is that when the paper is folded over the form the visual "lid" it shows the coordinating pattern.





It is hard to show how the box opens in a photo but the tutorial I linked to has a video so you can see it clearly.



So I hope you enjoyed this and we can't wait to see what you create and share with us over at More Than One Score at Scor-Pal

Katie

Challenges:
Jo's Scrap Shack - Mother's Day
QKR Stampede - April Showers Bring May Flowers
Simply Create Too - Ladies Only
Little Claires - Spring Colors
Hiding in my Craftroom - Freestyle/Anything Goes
Crafting with Friends - Anything Goes
