Default Scoreboard Markers

Here is a fun tip I conjured up a while back. When Stampin' Up came out with their scoreboard, I loved the concept of the markers to hold your place. I already had a scoreboard and couldn't shell out for a new one. So I simply added markers to the one I had.

I attached a magnetic strip across the compartment door. Then I bent open the ends of some paperclips of various colors and now store them in the compartment. I can then pull out as many paperclip "markers" as I need and point them at the measurements I need. The color coding can come in handy when having to mark differing projects at the same time.

Hope this idea might help some of you.

What a smarty you are! I was thinking of using Post-it markers but your markers are sturdier. I really like your solution.

That is brilliant!! Thank you so much. I've been wondering how to better mark my Scor-Pal one, having had a couple of mis-scores.

Thank you, I still don't know which board to buy yet. Would like them in Metric and Inches which means two boards, I did hear the SU one will have an overlay so you can have both, I expect that will cost nearly as much as two boards!
