Sharing Ideas...... 
Do you keep miss-placing or losing the scoring tool for your enveloper or score board? 
Why not use velcro adhesive dots to attach the score tool to your board.
Simply affiix the soft side of 2 velcro dots to the board & 2 of the opposite loopy side to the score tool in 2 places.
(this handy hint came from Bev in Tatura, Victoria......Thanks for sharing Bev.)
