Tool Time with Stamptastic Friends

Welcome to the Stamptastic Friends Monthly Blog Hop. Today we are sharing some of our favorite tools. Stampin’ Up offers so many wonderful tools it can be overwhelming at times. I love our Take a Pick Tool, our Paper Snips are the best, & the Cut & Emboss Machine is my most used tool.

I picked the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to share.  One reason I like this tool is it gives such precise and deep scores for your project. A plus is you can sit and use it while watching TV!

Simply Scoring Tool

I have been on a mission to use up some of my Designer Series Paper (so I can order more from the new catalog). I found a gift bag tutorial from The Paper Pixie and figured it would be perfect.

Look at this adorable bag! It holds 6 cards & envelopes.

Using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool made creating several bags a snap. I plan to give these bags of cards to some friends and neighbors.

Helpful Hints:

See the little tabs that help you know where to score? They are so helpful.

Snip the bottom tabs on the 8 ¼” score line. Cut off a tiny bit to make the bottom fold flat.

Here are the measurements. I would love to see your gift bags if you try this tutorial.
