I bet you can't guess what I have been playing with today!!
Today, I decided to have a bit of a play (again) with the Simply Scored... Actually, I call it "In Service" training. After all, I can't be expected to sell something that I am not too familiar with... can I ?
Now, keep in mind, the rosettes, or lollies, as some people call them, are not made out of my precious Stamping Up supplies.... I am using up my generic materials for practice, and when I am happy with a result, I will make one or two (or several) in Stampin Up supplies. There is such a difference in quality between Stampin Up and these Generic papers.... Stampin Up, holds it shape, folds crisply, and doesn't tear. I can't tell you how many I threw away... but I can tell you that I am now proficient at making rosettes!!
The little folders hold 6 cards and envelopes, So I have just made up 6 plain white cards and embossed the front panel so they can be used for any occasion. I am trying to put a tutorial together and put it on my tutorial page... but that may just take a little time.
In the meantime, this is how I made the folders.
Take and A4 piece of cardstock and cut it at 6!/2 inches wide. Then place it on the Simply Scored imperial measurement ( I still think in inches, sorry) and score at 3, 3 1/2, 8, and 81/2 inches. Fold at the score lines.
Now take the little bit that you cut of the original cardstock, and cut 2, 3 inch pieces, and score them lengthwise at 1/2 inch and 1 inch. fold along the score line. You can use these as the side bits of the box. Just simply glue into place.
Add your embellishments, and you are done!
