Vendor Spotlight & Giveaway – Martha Stewart Scoring Board

Reported by Erin Bassett

Ok, I’ll admit it. I like to eyeball things instead of measuring them, and I’ve probably only used the scoring blade on my trimmer a handful of times (there I said it! -I guess I’m not very precise…or maybe I’m just impatient). So when the opportunity arose to actually use the Martha Stewart Scoring Board I was intrigued and wondered if I would find it to be a seriously missing necessity to my craft tool stash!

Included with the scoring board is a bone folder and an envelope guide (with score instructions imprinted on it). The neat thing is that there are actually storage places for both these items in the scoring board, so you don’t lose them!
Inside the compartment for the bone folder there is a handy-dandy sticker that tells you where to score to create cards and boxes. There are also stickers included in Spanish and French, so you can replace the English, if you so desire. One draw-back, however, was that the door for the bone folder compartment was almost impossible for me to open. I ended up having to pry it open! I opened and closed it repeatedly, and it did loosen up some…nonetheless it is never as easy to open as I would hope for.
I happened to find the storage spot for the envelope guide by accident when I was examining the underside of the score board. The envelope guide just slides right in the bottom of the board.
To balance out my apparent lack of precision when crafting, I have a propensity to read instructions thoroughly…so that’s what I did first. I read the packaging and the enclosed insert, and when it said to practice first, I did…on the insert. Success! I also learned something new in the instructions…when scoring, the score line should be the outside of the fold and the “bump” is the inside of the fold. The few times I’ve actually taken the time to score paper before folding it I’ve always done the reverse. Now I know!
Another tip: when using the bone folder to make your score lines is to always hold it at a 45 degree angle. When I held it at a 90 degree angle, using the “point” of it, I got off track.
For my first projects I thought I’d do something simple like an A2 envelope. I took a nice thick piece of Imaginisce double-sided paper and cut it to 8 ½” x 8 ½”. I placed the envelope guide onto the upper left corner of the score board and then lined up my paper so it was flat against the guide. I scored it at the 3” mark and then rotated the paper 90 degrees. I then scored it at 3 5/8” and turned it another 90 degrees. I repeated those two steps over again until I had four score lines that created a rectangle in the middle of my paper.

I then cut out the small triangles in between the score lines and folded all the flaps inward and adhered them in place.
Success!

The next thing I made was a box. I started by looking at the box size options on the compartment door, and opted for a 4” square box. I started with two 12” square piece of paper for the box. I easily scored my paper and cut it where the directions said to. I then folded and glued it together.

I decided that my box was a bit plain, so I dressed it up with a strip of 2” wide paper that I scored and accordion-folded every quarter inch. I joined the two ends together and glued it to a recycled scrap paper to give it some stability. I topped off that with a lace ribbon I gathered to form a flower and another accordion folded strip of paper; this one was only ½” wide. I topped off that layer with a small brad that I covered with felt.
I had so much fun making all those scores for the box topper that I just had to do one more; they were so fast to make! I took two 1 ½” wide stripes of paper and scored them every ½”. I then folded and joined them together to create circle. I adhered it to a strip of paper and ribbon that I had wrapped around a faux candle.To top everything off I added a chipboard embellishment piece to the center of my accordion circle.
Finally, I made an A2 gate-fold card. It’s one of the styles of card that has measurements and instructions inside the bone folder compartment. I cut my paper to 8 ½” x 5 ½”, and then scored it at the 2 1/8 ” mark and the 6 3/8” mark, per the instructions. I folded my paper on the score lines and then sprayed the front of my card with “Marshmallow” Glimmer Mist to give it a frosty look. I then created a band to encircle the “waist” of my card.
I found that when creating projects that have numerous folds in them like my gift box topper or the embellishment on my faux candle, having a scoring board is priceless! It’s the quickest most accurate way to make that many score marks. It’s also really nice to use the score board to create things that don’t have that many score lines (like envelopes and boxes) because you get a really accurate line, and it’s really convenient to have the sizes and score measurements right in front of you without having to calculate them yourself or Google them.
To see the Martha Stewart Score Board in action, check out our video of it from CHA.
Pros:
  • Comes with a bone folder and an envelope guide with measurements to jump-start your project.
  • On-board storage space for both the bone folder and envelope guide.
  • Score marks at 1/8” intervals.
  • Accommodates paper up to 12 ½” square.
  • Light-weight for travel.
Cons:
  • The door for the bone folder is hard to open.
  • Measures approximately 14” x 13” x ¾” so storage space maybe an issue for some.

    Right now, I use a bone folder and my paper trimmer to do simple folds for cards, etc. I will use a metal ruler on my craft mat for more complicated folds. This looks like a terrific tool for those of us who create lots of gifts with our paper supplies!

    Right now, I use the bone folder thingy that can be attached to my paper trimmer.

    If I had that Martha Stewart Score Board, I would use it for making Christmas gift boxes and fill them with gingerbread cookies. It would be great for making fun stuff for my upcoming wedding, too. Like favor boxes etc. 😀

    I love my Martha Stewart scoring board. A big pro for me was the price. So much more affordable than other scoring boards!

    I never had any trouble opening the compartment. Maybe it’s an inconsistency in the manufacturing.

    I want one of these so bad! Even more after seeing all these accordion flowers you made! I make mine by hand and they are very uneven…

    I score my cards with a ruler mat and a scoring tool, as the scoring blade on my trimmer is sharp enough to cut paper. I bought an “enveloper” a few months ago, but I found the instructions and measurement guide lacking – I hardly use it.

    Oh, I would love to have this scoring board! Santa are you listening?

    I would love to win this! It’s been on my wish list for a while, ever since I borrowed my friends.
    If I do score while working on a project, right now I use my bone folder with my paper trimmer to score paper. (I gave up long ago on the scoring blade that came with my paper trimmer.) Truth be told, more often than not, I’ll often just fold the paper and hope it works out right 😉

    If I win I’ll be making cards, boxes and envelopes that require more precise folds.

    What a great review! I have been up in the air about purchasing one of these type of boards, but think it would be great to have the continuous measurements instead of my current scoring technique with my paper trimmer to measure score, move paper down, measure score… things just don’t measure out as perfect!

    Right now I have a Scor-Pal, it is an OK tool, but there are some definite improvements needed – it is kind of limited in what it does. I love how the Martha tools just seem to improve on what is available in the market; they work wonderfully, and just have a great “feel” to them. I do a ton of cardmaking, and would love a more reliable and easy-to-use tool to complete my projects. What a great giveaway!

    i AVOID scoring! the only method that works for me is dragging out the 6″ x 12″ ruler and using a bone folder. this isn’t very accurate, though, because of the thickness of the bone folder. i usually just fold and crease and use my bone folder to make it crisper. su! cardstock is really thick, so i have to go with method a, otherwise it will break the paper.

It is handy and I love that the board has 1/4″ increments right across. My girlfriend is not convinced. She has one of the other boards and cannot afford a Martha’s board. If I should win I’d love to give it to her for Christmas so that she too can have the card-making freedom that this board allows. Thanks so much for the chance to win one.

    A friend has three different score boards including Martha’s and finds she uses Martha’s the most frequently because of the more numerous scoring lines and measurements. I’d love to see one in person – hint, hint, wink, wink!

I would make soooo many things with this tool- boxes for gifts, folders for putting notebooks and memo pads in, cards, embellishments,-the possibilities and the list is endless. it’s safe enough for my grandchildren to use to create too so they would get as much use from it as I would.

    I have a bone folder for folding my cards and a small scoring blade which fits into my paper trimmer. I would love to have a scoring board. Iris Soscia

    hmmmm, this was one tool i thought i could leave at the store, but seeing how useful this is and how all the measurements to make certain sizes are posted right there without having to search for it makes me reconsider. 🙂 I use the scoring thingy on my cutter, but it’s a bit of a pain to switch out. I’d use this for custom sized envelopes to match my cards.

    I never realised this scoring tool had an envelope thingie – it would definitely mean I wouldn’t have to use 2 different tools for the same thing, yay!

    I use my bone folder for cards as well as flower making but it would be so nice to make my own envelopes. Thank you for the very in depth review.

    Thanks for great projects and a great and thorough review! I’d love to use one to make those acordian folded decroations! I’ve tried witha bone folder and ruler, but it doesn’t look as pretty. Thanks for sharing!

    Wow! I usually eyeball and use the scoring blade on my paper trimmer, but this tool looks WAY better. I’ve been looking at it and wondering about how well it works. Thanks for the information, tips and great pictures!

    I have been using a score-pal. Sometimes it is not successful. I like to make my own patterns and I cannot use it for some chipboard. I would love to try the MS scorer. My cards would be easier from what I have seen. Thanks!

    I use the back of a butter knife to score with. Not always ideal. If I had a Martha Steward Scoring Board I would make envelopes, boxes and cards.

    I use a bone folder. If I had a Martha Stewart Score Board, I would use it for making rosettes, envelopes, boxes and more! It would make my papercrafting a lot easier!

    I use a pencil and ruler to mark the 1/4″ mark and then just fold. of course the folds are far from perfect. I would use the score board to make those rosette flowers like in the tutorial.

    I could use this to make envelopes. I always seem to run out of them just as I am ready to send out a card!

    This looks like a great tool. I have a Scor-pal, but the diagonal feature on this one, and the closer scoring measurements make it more useful! Would love to win one!

    I have a Scor-Pal and I love it that I can score, but it’s complicated to get strange numbers like 3/4 so with more lines this looks great. I like that it comes with all kinds of directions. I would make envelopes. I so need something easy to make envelopes for odd sized cards. This looks great!

    I currently use a scoring blade for my trimmer and a bone folder.

    I would get a great deal of use out of this wonderful tool! I make a lot cards, as a member of OPERATION WRITE HOME, I make cards for our enlisted to send home to their friends and loved ones.
    Thanks for this opportunity.

    I used to use my trimmer that can be interchanged with a scoring blade and have since purchased a ScorePal, which I could buy locally. However it is not as quick and versatile as I would like – the MS Scoring Board has all the scoring lines you need – brilliant! Thanks for the chance to win!!

    I’ve seen this MS scoring board all over the scrapbooking blogs I read – seems likes it’s the thing to have/get! I do all my folding by hand and could definately use some help!

    The thought of cards and envelopes that fold cleanly is a dream. I can’t decide whether I’d just make envelopes all day, or if I’d add texture to all my papers.
