S J Crafts September challenge

 
Time for a new challenge at S J Crafts and this month our challenge is

School/Learning + optional extra challenge - to use scallops!

 I was flicking through a magazine and came across this idea for a letter rack, which I thought would be perfect for me as I am always misplacing school letters just when I need the information in them.

First up I went hunting in the cereal cupboard for an almost empty box then set about taking it apart and cutting the top off the front of the box.
 
I've used some old MME 12 x12 papers which have been sat in my stash for an age. I've added some punched edges done with a Fiskars border punch for the added extra of scallops. The scrabble tile alpha was a free download which I printed out and heat embossed by rubbing a versamark pad over each tile and covering them with clear embossing powder.
 
On one side I have attached a loop with a brad to hold a pen.

And on the other side a bulldog clip again held in place with a brad to hold envelopes for money for milk/ gymnastic club etc.
Inside the box is an A5 pad for writing note for the teacher decorated in some more MME paper, punched edges and a pretty die cut flower.
