"More Than One Score at Scor-Pal" Challenge - Mother's Day

A new month means a new challenge at More Than One Score at Scor-Pal and this time we are looking for your "Mother's Day/For a Lady" themed projects.
You make an "Anything But a Card", a card with a fancy fold, anything as long as it has more than a single score and that you let us know where you used your Scor-Pal in the project.

Challenges:
Craftin Desert Divas - Mother's Day
Going Grey - Mother's Day (2 entries only)
That Craft Place - No Cards
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper - Patterned Paper
Eureka Stamps - Bling
Melonheadz - Sparkle

Border Punches - Embroidery Lace, Hearts, Daisy and Triple Dots by Martha Stewart
Circle Punch - Family Treasures
Adhesive - Glue Gun
Beads - Hobby Lobby
Tassels and Bling - The Paper Studio










For my design this month I decided to create a box of flowers from paper! Much cheaper than the store bought bouquet and they last so much longer!
The box was simply a 12" by 12" piece of cardstock scored at 4" and 8" on all sides, slit and folded to create the corners and then decorated with a punched paper border and a string of gold beads, yay for the hot glue!
The "flowers" are a series of rosettes, different papers, dimensions and border punches used to create the "frilled" edges. I added some bling, some cute tassels I found in the craft store, some wired ribbon for the filler and tag to let Mom know it's for her.
I hope you enjoyed this and we would love to see your creations over at More Than One Score at Scor-Pal and Good Luck!
