Thankful for Scor Pal

I just made a quick pretty box for cookies with nothing more than Scor Pal and leftover embellishments. It really weighs on me to have lots of bits and ends from other projects. I like order and hate hoarding, so I love that i can clear out a lot of supplies by making boxes and treat boxes. What will you be doing with your scraps this holiday

Take a 12.x12 piece of paper or cardstock score at 2 inches and at 10 inches turn paper 90 degree and score at 2 inches and 10 inches also. At top of paper, slit the vertical score line only up to the horizonal scoreline do the same at the bottom. Fold into box secure with your ATG or whatever you use as an adhesive. box bottom will be about 8 x 8 inches.

Now for the top, take 10 by 10 piece of paper. Score at 3/4 of an inch all around like you did with the bottom. Slit vertical scorelines at top and bottom only to the horizontal line fold into box shape. Secure with your ATG. Finished top will be about 8.5 x 8.5 inches
If you have a cricut, you can cut a shape in the middle of your 10 x 10 peice for a see-through hole that you can back with clear acetate or vellum.

Why Scrapbook?

Scrapbooking is my journal and journaling is about contemplating life so it is worth living. Scrapbooking also has an element of legacy--the books we creat will live longer than we will. So I have been musing over legacy and life and I think big changes are on the way.
