After years of working on crafting stories, I've come across some pretty amazing helpers. One of them is called The Ultimate Tool, sold by Crafter's Companion. It's for scoring paper, so you can easily and quickly make envelopes, favor boxes, and bags once your paper is cut. Here are a few pictures of the demonstration:
They started with a simple square piece of cardstock.
It's just scored four times across, twice each way (to create 9 smaller squares).
By now, there are diagonal score lines in the four corner squares, which make it possible to fold up the sides.
You can close the box using ribbon thread through punched holes, or you can make a top and get a complete box. Of course, it's so nice to make custom boxes out of your own papers or even envelopes for the toss or the escort cards. Check out the rest of the projects here.
