We recently received a question from one of our Facebook friends, Cheryl Hammac. She asked, “Do you all crop together outside of work?” Well Cheryl, not only do many of us crop together outside of work but we also get together every other Friday afternoon for our craft time, Creative Recess.
We each take turns sharing and teaching about new products, tools and techniques. This past week Susan Opel, our in-house expert and former teacher, taught us the ins and outs of the Martha Stewart Crafts Scoring Board.
This has quickly become one of my favorite must-have tools when creating projects. I had no idea how simple it would be to create a box out of a flat sheet of cardstock! I just followed the instructions on the inside of the scoring board tool and poof…a gift box! I even managed to create a stack of boxes that afternoon. I also love the embossed designs on cardstock and the crisp folded edges you can make using the scoring board. It makes everything look so clean and professionally done.
Everyone had a great time learning and creating fun boxes, tags and cards.
It was great to get together to share ideas. Here are our finished projects:
What are you all waiting for! It’s time to get started on your holiday projects. And to help out, I have one Martha Stewart Crafts Scoring Board that I’m itching to give away. Since I’ve shared with you one of my favorite tools, I’d love to hear your comments on the latest technique or favorite tool you’ve used that has become part of your crafting arsenal. I’ll draw a random winner and the scoring board will be yours just in time for those holiday projects. All comments must be received by midnight (MST) on Wednesday, Nov. 24.
P.S. If you just can’t wait for the drawing results on Thursday, you can nab your very own Martha Stewart Crafts Scoring Board HERE.
