I am blessed to work in a paper arts store and I have been getting many of our customers fired-up about the Scor-Pal. What an awsome tool!!!

For those of you having difficulty making the Nugget Boxes or scoring anything with obscure measurements on the Scor-Pal, here is my easy method:

Assume you need to score your paper at 1 7/8".

First, what is the next whole number up from 1 7/8"? Answer: 2. You will use the 2" score line (groove).

Second, what is 1 minus the fraction? The answer is where you place your paper. One (or 8/ minus 7/8 equals 1/8.

Place your paper at the 1/8" line and score at 2".

How about having to score at 4 11/16"?

Score at the 5" line (the next whole number up).

Move your paper to the 5/16" line (1 or 16/16 minus 11/16 equals 5/16).

Where is the 5/16" line? It's an imaginary line right between 4/16", or 1/4", and 3/8". This is why the first inch on your Scor-Pal is broken down into 8ths. You'll use the first inch for all your "obscure" measurements. After making several Nugget Boxes, you'll be a pro.
