Centimeter Scro-Pal - Up for Grabs - Spoken For!

The Scor-Pal has been spoken for - Thanks for the interest!

I am hoping that there is someone out there not in the USA who might like a brand new Scor-Pal... for free if you can pay the shipping.

Metric SCOR-PAL (centimeters) - Click Image to Close

I say outside the USA because the one I purchased (unknowingly) is actually in centimeters.  Needless to say none of the score lines align with the US measurements for cards.  Rather than try to make it work I thought I'd just pass it along.

Since it's free I would love it if the recipient could pay the postage since I've already spent almost 30.00 on the tool it's self.

The first person to e-mail me has dibs.


  1. OK, I'd love one of these. But, that said the frugal crafter in me asks......
    a) can't you take it back for a refund?
    b) at the risk of losing the option on this, an inch is 2.5 cm. If you multiply all your measurements by 2.5 they will be about right. A 12 x 12 inch paper is 30 x 30 cm. 2 inch is 5cm etc. etc.
    c) why doesn't someone make one of these with inches on one side and cm on the other?
    d) ain't it funny. I looked at one of these the other day in a shop here but it was in inches!! OMG, you just got to laugh.
    e) any idea how much it would cost to send to Norway? Maybe you have a Brit living in the US who would love to craft in old money (as we say) although funny enough it isn't that long since we converted to cm from inches. What a funny old world it is.......

    1. I'd have to send it back for a refund and end up spending more on shipping (to and from) than the cost of the Scor-Pal which is why I'm just offering it to someone for free.

      As far as doing the math goes...I could do the math but the marks don't line up in inches...I tried to see if I could fold a regular card size I normally make and the score line was off by about 1/8th of an inch.

      - C - I so totally agree!! It would make too much sense!

      I checked - because of it's size it would be 32.00 to ship it first class international postage.

      I'm willing to send it to anyone who can figure it out :)

  2. It's like when you're cooking. You can't use lb/oz for some of the ingredients and grams/kg for the rest. What is a normal size card in the US? We use stupid designations, C6 10x15cm, C5/A5 15x20cm, A4 30x20cm (ish) OOff on the postage. As much to send as it cost! Understand it's a big beast. Shall I send you a cm/inch ruler and you can do yourself a little conversion chart? An 1/8 isn't much as long as it fits the envelope? LOL I do think cm's are better than inches in that you are thinking 1's and halfs not 1/8th, 1/16th, 1/32th. If you got a cm ruler and measured your card to the nearest cm you could start using the board. No one would know if you didn't tell them!!! I'll have a think and check the piggy bank.....


Thanks for your thoughts and comments!
