Luminaries and the Simply Scored Scoring Tool!!

I love using paper to make 3-D projects! Now, you might be thinking that is a little over the top, that 3-D projects take too much time. Well, I’ve got the solution for you! The Simply Scored Scoring Tool makes creating 3-D projects faster and easier than ever! It fits 12" x 12" paper, has full rulers across the top and down the left side that are marked at every 1/8". Plus there is a centering ruler along the top edge. The unique design includes holes for place markers at every 1/8" interval. The markers are great for saving time when scoring multiple projects and for making 3-D projects, like boxes.
 Storage compartments and a place for the included ergonomically designed stylus are great bonus features. The stylus has two tip sizes so you can choose which you prefer. The refined steel tip gets even smoother with use instead of wearing out like plastic tools do. With its sturdy yet lightweight design it doesn’t bow or slip around when you are scoring. You need to get your hands on this amazing tool so you can see for yourself how fun creating 3-D projects can be!

 Luminaries that we made at my Stampin Up workshop using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool.

turn paper to 4 1/2 side and score at 1 3/8"
fold at all scoring lines
all sides are 2 1/2 " with one 1/2" tab at end
decide where front should be and punch circle in center
Stamp image on vellum, when dry adhere to inside luminary with stamped image facing out. The luminary"bottom" will become the top so make sure you adhere image correctly.
Fold into box shape, adhere small ( 1/2") tab to inside box.
Fold down flaps to close making sure to fold front and back flaps last.
Using 12' ribbon adhere about 1/4 way up in inside box. Wrap around the outside and adhere to inside on the other side. 
Using the 10' ribbon tie a bow and adhere to top.
