A Case of the Miniatures! - Scor-Pal meets SEI !

It's my turn today for the cross promotion on the Scor-Pal blog between Scor-Pal and SEI and I like to call mine a "case of the minitures!"
Be sure to check out the projects made by the SEL team too on the SEL blog
I loved the papers, so soft and girly and I knew a piece of home decor for my daughter would be a perfect fit.
We often think only of the Scor-Pal for full sized projects like boxes and cards but this time I used the Scor-Buddy as I was working with much smaller pieces of paper
This project shows lots of different techniques and embellishments that can be created with your Scor-Buddy

Project Recipe:
Tools - Scor-Pal, Scor-Buddy, Scor-Mat and Scor-Envi
Adhesive - Scor-Tape and Hot Glue
Stamps - Mini Tangle Tilda and Mini Princess Tilda with Ballet Shoes
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Diane by SEI
Wooden Memory Frame - The Paper Studio
Metal, Wood and Glass Accents - The Paper Studio
Twine - The Twinery
Sentiments - Heidi Grace and Making Memories
Flower Stickers - The Paper Studio
Beads - Unknown
Silk Flowers - Prima
Paper Flowers - Recollections
Buttons - Dress It Up
Letter Beads - Walmart
Butterfly Punch - Martha Stewart

Start by decorating the inside of the sections of the frame.

Punch a 12" strip of paper to make a ruffled rosette. Score between the scallops of the punched edge and on the 1/2 of the scallop and then fan fold a create your rosette.

First let me apologize for the "glue strings" in the photo. Using the same fan folding technique you can create a fan rather than a rosette and this one fits perfectly into the corner of this square frame.

Using the directions on the Scor-Envi create a mini envelope as an embellishment.

You can create simple standing frames by scoring across the card stock at 1/2" and burnishing.

Another reason to keep the Scor-Buddy on your desk when you are crafting is that often you need a quick straight fold like across the butterfly to make it's wings pop up.

Create a scored background and then use ink to highlight the score lines.

I made another rosette and added a stem and leaves this time.

The following photos are just close ups of the completed project.
