Scor-Pal is a handy crafting tool that helps to score paper and other materials with the score grooves along a ruled board with a fence to easily align your material. The Scor-Pal can be part of a package deal called the Scor-Pal Ultimate that includes the Scor-Pal board, the Scor-Mat, Scor-Envi Template, two rolls of Scor-Tape, the Scor-Tote and the Score, Fold, Create Project Book.
The Scor-Pal has a twelve inch wide working surface and has grooves along the board for scoring while the top and sides have measurements in either inches or centimeters. The beginning and end of the board has grooves every eighth of an inch while most of the board has grooves every quarter inch.
There are groves at particular measurements and indicators to help create specific projects both with the Scor-Envi Template and without it. The Scor-Envi is a handy tool for creating envelopes and has the sizes for both rectangular and square envelopes that the Scor-Pal can make.
You can also use the Scor-Pal with the Scor-Mat in place on the board for cutting and working on projects on either side of the mat. One side has measurements for cutting materials while the other side is perfect for working and even hot glue gun work with rosettes.
The Scor-Pal does work well and you can use the project book Score, Fold Create to get a start on creating but the Scor-Pal website has numerous other projects. Using the Scor-Pal is easy and the triangular Scor-Envi Template really helps creating envelopes so at a minimum buying both should be enough to handle many crafting situations.
The Ultimate Package does give you enough tools to do a good job and I especially liked the double sided tape which came with the set. I was extremely pleased with the double sided tape that came with the set as it was easy to peel the backing off and was very easy to use in the projects I worked on.
I worked with regular paper and some more expensive scrapbooking paper as well as plastic and even metal with some decent results. I did like the regular aluminum flashing I used to make a couple gift boxes and the copper also made nice looking boxes with that extra flash.
Working metal in the Scor-Pal is a little different than using paper as you need to be careful to keep the tool straight because it is easier to slip out of the groove. You should also be careful of edges as you can cut yourself but other than that using metal worked well and made for some excellent projects.
The Scor-Pal is easy to use and makes a great addition to any crafters tool while the Ultimate Package is the best way to stock up on all the Scor-Pal tools you need. I highly recommend the Scor-Pal Ultimate Package as a great scoring board and kit for the crafter.
