Scor-pal and Simple Stories Project

Hello!  I have a mini-book project to share with you today, using my favorite Scor-pal tools and the amazing Simple Stories patterned papers.


Patterned Paper: Fab{u}lous and Simple Basics kit by Simple Stories (papers, kit stickers and journal prompts)
Tools: Scor-pal scoring board in inches, Scor-tape, Scor-tool
Cardstock: black cardstock by
Embellishments: rhinestones by Recollections, Mod Podge
Other: cardboard

Begin with two pieces of cardboard.  This book was sized as 8.5" x 5".  You can opt to purchase heavy weight cardboard OR... you can be thrifty.  I save cardboard from large packs of patterned pattern, save cereal boxes (the sturdy kind not the econo boxes we usually buy) or from the back of a pad of notebook paper.  Cover the piece of patterned paper and cardboard completely with Mod Podge.  I find that when you cover both surfaces with liquid glue, you avoid air bubbles behind the paper.  Cover both sides of the cardboard.  Set aside to dry.

Cut a piece of black cardstock to 8" x 6.5".  Score with the Scor-pal scoring board and Scor-Tool along the 6" side every 0.5".  Add Score-tape to one side of each score mark and fold.

Adhere to the cardboard covers.

Cut black cardstock for the pages at 8" x 5".  Adhere to the spine of the book.

Embellish the pages with the fun stickers and journal prompts from the Simple Stories Fab{u}lous kit.

Doesn't this make a great gift for a sweet teenager?  I know my sweet girl will love it!  I left plenty of spaces to add fun pictures and high school mementos.
