Corrugated Paper Challenge No 4

Hello Crafters.

I was so pleased with yesterday's project except the card stock split on about 3/4" on one of the edges and I really not sure why. 

I suspect I either scored it too hard or not hard enough. Unfortunately, because I was working yesterday I didn't have time to make a second one.

I used the Gift Bag Score Board to create this bag and worked with the grooves going horizontally. 

I always do the horizontal score line all the way across the box before I start. 

I knew immediately I had pressed too hard. You know that sound of paper splitting?? 

I cut my Corrugated Paper down from 12" to 11" so I was able to cut off the damaged piece and start again.

I was very gentle with my scoring this time and followed through with the instructions for the bag. 

It was when I was folding and gently burnishing the folds that the cracking occurred. You can see the splitting in the last two photographs.
I will have another attempt to find out where I went wrong. 

The reason I'm convinced it's something I've done wrong is that I've seen a photograph somewhere of a Square Pillow Box made with the Corrugated Paper and the folds all looked perfect. 

To decorate my bag, I heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder one of the trees from the Peaceful Pines Stamp Set and die cut it using the Perfect Pines Thinlits. 
I did a layer of gold foil using the template I showed how to make in my video Glimmer Christmas Tree. I adhered the two together using Tombow and then adhered to the gift bag with Dimensionals. 
I used our gorgeous Gold Satin Ribbon to tie the bag closed. Using Gold Embossing Powder, I heat embossed two stamps from the Merry Everything Stamp Set. 

The one that isn't visible is the To, From stamp which I've adhered to the back of the tag you can see. 

I punched the two tags out using the Tag Label Punch and used my 1/8" Handheld Circle Punch to make a hole to thread the Gold Cording through.
