Daily Special - Anything But Cards - Handmade Card Box Tutorial

Hello Everyone!!! Today's Daily Special is "Anything But Cards". The tutorial is on how to create a box that will fit 4 to 5 handmade cards (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") and envelopes. Diana at Scor-Pal invited me to be a "Guest Instructor" to create tutorials for the Scor-pal. Yay! How fun!
Visit the Scor-pal website to view my tutorial on the "Accordion File" that I created on my blog site a month or so ago. On the website, there's also a bunch of tutorials of projects that you can create using the Scor-pal . . .be sure to drop by the website and check out this great new product. I received my Scor-pal a few days ago and it's very easy to use. I'm still getting acquainted with it but so far I really like it. I must say, scoring is a breeze with this product. I'll make more projects in the near future using the Scor-pal!

What is Scor-pal? Here is an excerpt from the Scor-pal website:

Exciting new Scoring Tablet with a 12" x 12" surface
Accurate, crisp, precise scores, no more crooked cards
Professional folds
Make multiple scores at different intervals without moving the paper, perfect accordion folds
Light weight and portable
Snap in feature for scoring tool

Here are the cards that I created to match the box! It's like a coordinating set. Amazingly it took only 4 pieces of 12 x 12 designer paper to create the box and all four cards. All the cards were created with the Colorbok designer paper and paper embellishments and Basic Basic ribbon.
