Triple Easel Display with Scor-pal and Momenta

Today I will be sharing my project that was featured on the Scor-pal blog as part of this week's Scor-pal and Momenta blog week. Of course, if you missed this project or any of the other great projects from the Scor-pal team you'll want to hop on over there and see what's been going on this week. Be sure to leave comments on each post from this week for a chance to win some great prizes. Entry deadline in 8am Monday, July 2, so there's still time.

I have an easy project to share that makes a fun and inexpensive gift for almost anyone. Of course, while you're at it, I'm sure you'll want to make one of these triple easel displays for yourself!

Supplies needed:
12x12 sheet of card stock for base
Scor-pal scoring board
decorative papers and embellishments of your choice

Step by step instructions
(followed by cutting and scoring diagram)

Begin with a 12"x12" piece of card stock. Trim it to 12" x 8". (Keep the remaining piece for use later in the project) 

With the 8" edge at the top of your scoring board score at  the 4" mark.

Rotate the paper 90 degrees and score at the 4" and 8" marks stopping at center score.

Create a diagonal score line on the two outer squares going from the top inner corner to the bottom outer corner on each end square. The is easily done by placing the corners at the 6" line. (marked at the bottom of the Scor-pal with 2 arrows)
Score the center block horizontally at the 2" mark.
Next cut the vertical lines that were made at the 4" and 8" marks and fold the panels in half inward.
Now simply cut the 12" x 4" piece into three 4" squares. Attached to base and decorate.
(Panels will be attached at bottom corners/edges)

Here is a quick recap of where the cut and score lines are located:

To finish the display place buttons or other 3D embellishments on the base to keep panels upright. and decorate.
Once decorated this project will make a great photo display
It is also the perfect size to hold post-it notes!

Once decorated this project is the perfect size for post-it notes or used as a photo display. I chose to use it as a motivational post-it note holder by adding some quote stickers from the vellum sticker collections. I thought they went well with not only the typical form of travel but travel through life.

Here's a close up of those:
