We begin with this marvelous tag book cover that Maiko created with Graphic 45 Large Tag Album Staples and our 12 Days of Christmas collection. She used her Scor Pal to create perfect scores in the tag and papers. The results are so beautiful! This is a great way to create perfect tags, cards and other beautiful gifts this holiday season! You can see how Maiko used the 12 Days of Christmas Chipboard Die-Cuts and Stickers to add whimsical holiday charm to this creation.

I have made these Bon Bons a few times before, and given them to family at Christmas, with chocolates, or a special little gift inside. I usually make them by hand, measuring, and scoring all the fold lines with my ruler. It takes quite a while to do it, so, you cant imagine how excited I was to make them using the Scor pal, they literally took no more than 2 minutes to score and assemble, as opposed to about 15 using my old method. I am in love with my Scor pal, and don’t know what I ever did without it.
Scor Pal and Scor Pal ½ inch scor tapeOther: Ribbon, Martha Stewart border punch, foam tape, glue, Kindyglitz
Step 1: Begin with a piece of paper 12 inches x 9.5 inches. Place on Scor-Pal as shown, score at 3 inches, 6 inches, and 9 inches (this will leave a small flap for sticking together later)
Step 2: Turn paper around as shown, and score at 1 inch, 2 inches, 3 inches, 9 inches, 10 inches and 11 inches. Fold ALL score lines.
Step 3: Hold paper as shown, and make a V cut from the 1 inch score line, and the 3 inch score line, meeting in the middle at the 2 inch score line. NOTE: make sure where you meet in the middle is a little less than half way to the 3 inch score line.
Step 4: Fold the paper on the first score line, and trim another V cut, as before, this time cutting through 2 layers as shown. Again, make sure you cut a little less than half way.
Step 5: Repeat this process until your paper looks like this (above).
To add a pretty touch to the bon bon, I have used a border punch, to decorate the edges at this point.
Step 6: Place strip of ½ inch scor tape along flap.
Step 7: Assemble Bon Bon as shown
That's all for today, G45ers. We hope you all had a lot of fun! Don't forget to leave us a blog comment today for your chance to win that amazing prize pack from Graphic 45 and Scor Pal.
