"More Than One Score at Scor-Pal" Challenge - Birthday Celebrations

A new month means a new challenge at More Than One Score at Scor-Pal and this time we are looking for your "Birthday Celebrations" themed projects.
We have 3 birthdays in our house in August so that's why I picked it as the theme for this month while I'm hosting.

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 my project I decided to make a simple gift box. But it's simplicity lends it to great decoration and also teaches you how easy it is to make boxes of differing sizes when only faced with 12" by 12" paper/
My box is 4 1/2" high, 6" wide and 3" deep.

Project Recipe:
Paper - K and Co
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Brass Sentiment - Recollections
Pearl Brads - The Eyelet Outlet
Ribbon - Really Reasonable Ribbon
Lace - Mon Ami Gabbi
Chalk Ink - Prima Chalk Edger in Brick Wall
Scoring Board - Scor-Pal
Adhesive - Scor-Tape

Start with a piece of cardstock 6" by 12" and score at 4 1/2" and 7 1/2" along the 12" side.

For the sides you need 2 pieces of cardstock measuring 5" by 5". Score at 1" and 4" on one side, make a quarter turn and score at 1/2"

Burnish and snip at the intersections as shown in the photo, this makes making a corners easier and much crisper.

Add Scor-Tape as shown in the photo

Add the sides to the matching lent of the larger piece of cardstock as shown

Create the sides as shown using your Scor-Tool to create the crisp corners by pushing it gently into the formed corners.

Attach the other sides of form the box

Decorate with patterned cardstock, chalk edges before adhering if using chalk ink

Cut strips to create the rosettes. I did 1 at 12" by 1 1/2" and 2 at 12" by 1". Use a border punch is you like to create a decorative edge, punch after initially cutting the strip before folding.

Score at 1/4" intervals all along the 12" strip and accordion fold to create the rosettes. Use a hot glue to create for strength.

Decorate the box as desired

There you go, a simple yet elegant little box to add a very special gift for a very special birthday!
I hope I have inspired you to get scoring, please drop by More Than One Score at Scor-Pal to see all the other wonderful creations from the team and to enter your creation, we'd love to see it!

Happy Scoring!
