Snazzy Scor-Pal Creations!

Thanks to the lovelies who joined me for some Scor-Pal fun last weekend! We made some cutie-patootie little treat containers and a very cool card. :)

As promised, here are some instructions for the projects. What I love about these creations is that you could easily change them up for whatever season/holiday/celebration/party is coming your way. Baby or Wedding Shower favors using the Tent Wrap! Mini Matchbook Treats for class Valentines! So many creative uses for these quick & easy projects. Enjoy!

Ghiardelli Box - template here
This easy little box holds 3 Ghiardelli chocolate squares ... so cute!

Tent Wrap - template in this thread
We put two Hershey's Nuggets inside. You could use Kisses, a roll of Life Savers, or a tube of LIP GLOSS (thanks Theresa for that fab idea!). I mean, how cute would this be for a girl's birthday party with a tube of Lip Smackers inside? Adorable!

Mini Matchbook Treats - template in this thread
Seriously ... how CUTE are these little things? They are tiny, so we made 4 as one project. I could have made them all day long - so quick, easy and did I mention CUTE? :) The best thing about these is that you can make 4 from one single 4-Bar Note. The only thing I changed from the original template is that I used a 1/16" hole punch and a brad in place of the staple. Great way to use up random brads you might have stashed away! We used the individually wrapped Life Savers inside - Tropical and Original - so they are brightly colored. :)

Box in a Bag - template here
We filled the box in a bag with crinkle shred, and it makes the cutest little gift packaging!

Stairstep Card
Julie had us make a fabulous version of this card at our Instructor Weekend in Seattle last fall. She used the 8.5x11 Cardstock, but I changed the dimensions and scoring marks a bit so we could use one 4-Bar Note.

Using a 4-Bar note (3.5" x 10"), score at these measurements:
1", 2", 3.5", 5" (this is the pre-scored line), 7.5"
