“To the Pinterest boards!”
That’s the first thing I said after one of my closest friends asked me to be her MOH. Well, to be fair, first I said, “Mrrrawwwwngh!” and then “Oh-my-God-I-am-so-excited!”, and between […]

Permalink Product: Scor-Pal Price: $39.95 What It Does: The Scor-Pal is a heavy 12-inch x 12-inch plastic board with premeasured indentations on its surface. Users place cardstock on the board and use a bone folder (included) to press score lines into the cardstock. Every line comes out perfectly straight and crisp every single time. The premeasured lines make scoring boxes, gatefolds, and other complex scored projects super easy. Khris' Review: This was not a love-at-first-use purchase for me but I've grown to adore this product for projects with a lot of scoring (think boxes, thank you cards, programs). The lines are always straight, clean, and crisp. The unit is very easy to use. The only caveat: it works best with heavier cardstocks and with a bone folder other than the one it comes with (I recommend Martha Stewart Crafts' bone folder). The standard-issue Scor-Pal bone folder can be too sharp and will cut right through light weight (and even some heavy weight) papers and cardstocks. Do check out the Scor-Pal website for some neato project ideas.
