Hello everybody! Soraya here with you today to share a fun tutorial to make a light garland, using the incredible Triangle Score Guide along with the Trim & Score Board. As this is National Craft Month, I’m very excited to share this new project with you! The Triangle Score Guide is so smart since it allows you to create fun geometric shapes and gems by placing it on your Trim & Score Board. There is a complete guide book where you can find all the instructions and inspiration you need to start with it but here is my take on this amazing tool!
I used a piece of white cardstock to make this step-by-step for you so you can see how I scored and folded it. So let’s get started! First of all, to make the icosahedron shape I scored paper every 2 inches. Don’t forget to fold over the bottom left corner so that you can keep track of your page orientation as you rotate it. Then I placed the Triangle Score Guide on the Trim & Score Board (Side A) and started to score every 2 inch starting by the « 8 » mark (the bottom left corner you folded is in front of you.)
Use your adhesive runner to stick all the tabs and edges together, and this is the final shape you should get after assembling every side of the icosahedron!
Repeat the process 4 times with the 12×12 acetate papers to get 4 icosahedrons. I also made 4 little tetrahedron shapes (pyramids) with the leftovers, they will be perfect for the garland ! How cute are these geometric shapes ?
I hope you had fun joining me today, and I hope this project will inspire you to make your very own geometric shapes. The Triangle Score Board may be a little bit intimidating at first, but it’s way much more addicting once you start! There are so many possibilities, you will love it! Happy creative Tuesday everyone and until next time!
