May Arts and Scor-Pal Blog Week

 I am very excited to share a project I created for our May Arts ~ Scor-Pal Blog Week. Using a Scor-Pal, I created a Tea Bag Holder (using Beate Johns tutorial from Splitcoaststampers). Is the Woven Chevron Stripes Wired ribbon not just the most fab???? Love this stuff and couldn't wait to get started!!
Supplies:
 Patterned Paper: SEI
Stickers: SRM Stickers
Ribbon: May Arts
Adhesive: Scor-Tape
Scissors

Take a 3 1/2" x 7 3/4" piece of cardstock and score at 3 1/2" and 4 1/4".
 Fold on score lines.
 Take a 6 1/2 x 7 piece of patterned paper (lining up the 6 1/2" side  up to the top of the Scor-Pal) and score at 1/2" and 3 1/2". Prefold on the score lines.
 Apply Scor-Tape to 1/2" section of the paper.
 Remove tape lines, fold paper over, and rub to set adhesive.
Align paper sleeve up on Scor-Pal and score at 3 5/8" (the upside down triangle). Turn 180˙ and score again.
 Prefold on score lines. Cut a half circle off each end using a circle punch.
Using Scor-Tape, adhere the center of sleeve to inside of pre-scored cardstock panel.
Decorate as desired using May Arts ribbon to close.
 Hope you will try making one of these yourself!!  If you do be sure to leave me a comment as I would love to check it out!!  
Be sure to check out the Scor-Pal Blog for other inspiring ideas!!
Have a great day!


Blessings,
