Vendor Spotlight & Giveaway: Martha Stewart Scoring Board (2 of 2)

Reported by Peggy Marsh

This tool from Martha Stewart Crafts is really more than a simple scoring board. It’s a terrific gadget to add to your arsenal of tools. And we know how much we love our crafting tools! I’ve wanted to get my hands on this new toy for some time now.

There is a small panel at the top that houses the boning folder when not in use. Also, adhered inside is a decal with measurements for handmade envelopes and boxes. The instructions are in English, and the owner can substitute labels for Spanish or French instructions, as appropriate.
The envelope guide stores neatly (upside down) in the bottom of the scoreboard. What a handy tool that is!
I started out testing the envelope feature using a 8.5 x 8.5″ piece of designer paper to make a 5.5″ x 6″ envelope.

Simply scored following the directions on the guide…
and used a tape runner to secure the sides…
Easy peasy!!
Then I scored a 1″ x 9″ piece of cardstock at every 1/4″ increment…

Secured the ends together with a bit of craft glue…

…to create this pinwheel as a 3-D embellishment for my card.

And, here’s the card set together.

How great is that to have a card with matching envelope?

Pros:
  • Because the Martha Stewart bone folder is slimmer than other bone folders, it goes deeper into the scoring grooves and closer to the top fence of the board. As a result it makes crisper, more pronounced score lines.
  • Very reasonably priced at a retail cost of $19.99 and since it’s available at Michaels, you can use a 40% off coupon.
  • The envelope guide tool is included and neatly stores away when not in use.
  • No additional instructions are needed for making envelopes… it’s VERY simple to use and took less than a minute to create a 5.5″ square card for my project.

Cons:

  • Because the bone folder is slim, it can cut through some finer papers when scoring.
  • The English measurements for the envelopes and boxes are already attached when you purchase it. It is on the top portion of the housing for the bone folder. The way it is attached makes it almost impossible to read unless you pick up the board and get it to eye level.

    The only scoring tool I currently own is a Martha Stewart Crafts bone folder, which I use with a metal ruler. I would love to have a Martha Stewart Scoring Board; I would use it to make boxes, envelopes, tags and embellishments. The Scoring Board would save a lot of time and using it would give the crisp and even lines that I don’t always achieve with just a ruler.

    fabulous review, thanks Peggy!
    adorable card too!

    I don’t currently have a scoring tool! I see so many wonderful ways people use them. If I’m desperate for a scored line, I run my stylist tool across my paper while laying it over the edge of my straight cutter! lol Pathetic I know, but it works for a simple line! lol
    take care!

    IMHO, the MS Scoring Board has TOO MANY score lines which makes it difficult to follow a straight line on some intricate cuts. I find it useful, and not redundant, to have BOTH the MS score board and Scor-Pal. The envelope maker is a definite plus on the MS tool, however.

    I reviewed this product on my blog a couple of weeks ago. I really Love it! It has really helped me a lot! I use it to make custom boxes. Has been an instrumental tool for making score lines for my package toppers.
    Now my presentation is professional.
    See my blog for an example.
    http://waltersilvaart.blogspot.com/2010/11/martha-stewart-crafts-scoring-board.html#links
    I got mine for 9.99 @ Michaels using a 50% coupon. Also, great for decoupaging, I use it to score paper that will be decoupaged to a picture frame, this way there is no breaks (cracks) in the paper.
    Highly recommend!

    I have an EK success tool and it uses a special score/cutting mat. The problem is in using the scoring side, if you press too hard you can break through the paper…so I’ve started using the cutting side for scoring…I do like all the markings on the mat and the instruction book for making boxes. But I suspect the MS board is just a better tool. Would love to have one!

    I actually bought this yesterday!! (at Michaels with a 40% off coupon ;-)). I have been eyeing the Scor pal for years (and score buddy) but I could not afford $40 for this kind of tool! (the buddy is only $20 but so small that it wouldn’t do the trick). So, needless to say, I was ecstatic when I saw the MS priced at $20 (well 19.99 ;-)), with a coupon there was no reason not to give it a try! I have been scoring so far using my cricut paper trimmer that came with a scoring blade and am very happy with it but sometimes when you make multiple scores it’s annoying to have to move the paper for each score (yes, I’m a lazy scrapper, LOL).
    So far I love the MS scoreboard. It’s great that the enveloppe triangle conveniently stashes away under the board, AND it seems to have a magnet in it that keeps it in place on the board when in use.
    The only downside, and it’s not a real one, is that there might be a tiny learning curve to figure the perfect pressure to stay in the groove but not pierce through the paper… 😉
    I highly recommend it. Go to Michaels’ website, subscribe to their newsletter and once you receive your coupons by e-mail go grab one of those!! 😀

    So a cool trick when using the tool to make pinwheels- Grab a spaghetti sauce jar lid (or similar lids of various sizes)

    Once you get all your pleats folded – pinch a bunch together and set the pinwheels inside the lid. Now it’s easy peasy to glue it to a backing circle and let it set for a moment to stay in the wheel shape – and not have to hold it the whole time with your hands.

    Once it’s dry enough pinch the folds just a smidge and you should be able to get the embellishment outta the lid and ready to be decorated. I love my MS Scoring Board – I still haven’t quite got the hang of the envelopes, but I’ll keep at it.

    I currently own a Score-board, which I am fairly happy with, my main concern with it is that it does not have regular score lines which I would prefer to give me more control over my projects.

    I have the scor-pal, and am not a satisfied customer. The Martha Stewart ones seems to be so much more. Winning one would be awesome!!!!! I would like to see colored lines down the board at certain increments to make staying in line easier. Also, when scoring on the diagonal, a line at the 6″ mark would be fabulous. When lining up point to point, it is hard to be sure you are on the right line, that color would insure a perfect score every time.

    Of all my scoring tools, my favorite is the one that came with the book “Handmade Cards: Simple Designs for Beautiful Cards” (Klutz). It has a metal tip and works great with the measuring grid that came with it. They work great for cards, or simple score lines.

    But I would really like Martha Stewart’s scoring board as the project possibilities are AMAZING!!!!

    Hello there..I have been using the Scor-pal; however the Martha Stewart board looks much better as the increments are consistent across the board whereas the Scor-pal has the 1/8″ mark at one spot…etc..so you have to jiggle the paper to get the proper score lines if they’re not the standard every 1/2″. Would LOVE to try the new MS board!

    I HAVE both the score pal and the score-it board. The Score-it was my first and is the one that stays out all the time to do my card base folds. I use the score pal for any tricky scoring for cards or boxes or whatever. I think that I would like the consistent 1/4 inch grooves better than the different spacing on the score pal. Can I justify the third?

    I bought a scor-it tool a couple of months ago which I don’t use nearly enough- I have times where I’ll use it all the time then it gets put to the side and forgotten. I am still trying to work out ways to use it better. A Martha Stewart Board would probably give me more diversity being able to make boxes and envelopes easier. I love the storage idea for the folder and the envelope maker too.

Many times already I have need a line on the ScorPal and it was not there. The envelope feature and size examples are great ideas too. Would love the MS board and I thank you for the opportunity to enter your drawing. Jodi A

    I researched for a while finally deciding on the ScorPal. Not 2 weeks after I bought it, the MS Scoring Board was released. A friend let me play with hers and I love the 1/8 increments. Many times already I have need a line on the ScorPal and it was not there. The envelope feature and size examples are great ideas too. Would love the MS board and I thank you for the opportunity to enter your drawing. Jodi A

    I have the Scor Pal and love it except for one thing….it doesn’t have enough score lines (1/8″ marks). There are gaps, so I find myself having to adjust for certain measurements and move the paper over accordingly, which means I’d better be right or things could be off! This Martha Stewart Scoring Board looks neat and I’d love to have one.

    I have a scoring tool and what I don’t like is that it will cut just as easy as score. You have to be real careful to press just right.

    I have the MS Scoring Board and have made some great items(boxes, cards, envelopes, fans, and gift toppers). I also recently purchased the Ultimate Crafter’s Companion at JoAnn.com for around $35.00. I like both of these items for different reasons. As far as the MS Scoring Board, I had to replace the scoring tool with a more substantial bone folder and was able to stop punching through the lighter weight card stock. Also, I used the Spanish version of the measurement decal to put directly on top of the scoring tool compartment “door” to eliminate the trouble when I tried to read it under the “door” of the compartment. (The English version is difficult to view under the door.) I don’t read Spanish but you can figure it out once you compare it to the English version once or twice. Also, if you mark your most used lines with different colored Sharpie markers, it is easier to stay on track. I got that idea from the Ulimate Crafter’s Companion. I have run off of the track once or twice so this helps. I keep the MS board on my craft table and take the Ultimate CC to card club. I got mine with the 40% off coupon from Michael’s. If I win, I will give it to my daughter for Christmas because I would not want to be without mine any more. One note, the printed envelope measurements that Martha suggests to fit the 8 1/2″ x 11″ half sheet card (4.25″ x 5.5′), is too big in my opinion and you might want to change the measurements to your liking.

    I use my paper cutter with the scoring blade as my scoring tool. It is okay but difficult to line perfectly. Also when doing multiple scores, you have to move your paper not the scoring tool. I think it would work better the other way around.

    I would so love to win the Martha Stewart scoring board!!! I currently own a Scor-Pal which I really like and use often but I’ve been coveting the MArthat Sterwart one since it came out. I like the built in envelope tool, the scoring lines that are completely across the tool not just at strategic spots like the Scor Pal and the built in measurement panel. I’ve seen it used so many times on Kristina Werner’s blog and I’m in love to PICK ME! 😉

    Sadly, my only scoring tool at the moment is a metal ruler passed on from my mom – not even a bone folder, though i desperately miss them from my art framing days.

    something more accurate, clean and efficient would make a huuuuuuge difference in the quality of my work (glory be to never having to wash paint off before scoring!)

    Board a couple of months ago. I absolutely love it! I use it all the time for scoring my cards. I have not used it for envelopes yet, but I am about to use it tonight or tomorrow. The only negative I have is that the score tool is very thin. In a way, that is good, but I have actually cut the end of my card stock while I was scoring. I like the fact that it has so many lines to score, and they are marked very well. I also have the Crafters Companion and you can’t even read the size and there are not many choices for lines.
