Docrafts Multiscoreboard Xtra – Xcut by Coppernob.

My friend Josie from Coppernob  has sent me one of her new scoreboards that have been added to docrafts’ Xcut range of products:-
X Cut Mulitiscoreboard Xtra
I have been using her original scoreboard almost every day for years and just couldn’t craft without it, so I was interested to see what her new board has to offer, especially as my old faithful is looking a bit crook! I wonder if I could put it in the dishwasher?
M & F Scoreboard
Where the original is very basic, Josie’s new board (which also comes with a scoring tool), will help you fold, score, measure, make boxes  and emboss. The integral rulers are a very welcome addition.

I’ve only ever used the original board  to score cards, I’ve never used it to make boxes.. I have to be honest,  the docraft instructions on the back of the packaging  are not brilliant, however after a bit of playing I have made a pretty passable wedge shaped box as well as a pillow box.

These are very plain as they are my first efforts, but it wouldn’t take five minutes to add a few final touches to them to make them look more professional.
For more detailed instructions, Josie’s hints and tips page on her website is absolutely brilliant:-
Why not have a look and find out more?

Enjoy playing with your new board...I was tempted by this one but thought another board would be a bit OTT (I have a Crafters Companion Ultimate pro, a Martha Stewart, a scor-it, and a Hougie board) LOL

Toni :o)

Helen!! Love ya hate ya,lol. I've been hankering to make pillow boxes for ages and have only found printable templates,... how the hell are we expected to score a pencil line accurately? Now i've seen this i've got to get one or i won't sleep, lol. Thanks for sharing. xx

Looks brilliant especially as it has my fav score tool - I am a huge fan or the cobbernob crease mouse I have them all over the house LOL

I know this is old now but I need your help! I can't figure out how to make the pillow boxes (I'm not a avid crafter!) The links don't seem to work and I can't find Coppernob on the web anywhere!
