I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical when I heard about this tool at the Crafts and Hobby Association trade show in January. I couldn’t see the need to purchase an additional tool to do something I could do with a bone folder and a ruler or the scoring blades on my rotary cutter. What I didn’t realize is that while the outcome is the same, the scoring board makes the process much easier!
At first glance, the Martha Stewart Crafts Scoring Board ($19.99) looks like a large paper trimmer that has no blade. But look a little closer and you’ll several grooves spaced 1/8” apart that allow you to get a straight, even scoring line at whatever measurement you need. In addition to making boxes and cards, you can whip out envelopes easily with the help of the envelope guide. And there are handy storage areas on the board for the bone folder and the envelope guide.
I bought my scoring board at one of my local scrapbook stores last night and have already used it to make rosettes for two projects already. It makes the process so much easier and the end result so much cleaner than my previous scoring methods, which is awesome since I’m obsessed with rosettes.
I’m so glad I was wrong about it! Now I’m off to make more rosettes. Have a good weekend!
