I Love My Centering Ruler

I'm not a big fan of measuring.  I avoid it whenever possible, relying on the eyeballing method instead.  When I need or want something to be more precise, I use my Centering Ruler

I love it.  It is so quick and easy to use.  Simply put the zero near the center of your project, then make small adjustments until the edges are both the same distance from the zero.  No real measuring, no making marks, no stress if the item is a nonstandard size.

Here's the finished card.  The sentiment is perfectly centered.

  1. I have a ruler similar to this. Mine is clear and has evenly spaced holes that are great for brad placement. I am not a fan of measuring either so this tool comes in handy when you have to.

  2. I love this! Not just for papercrafting, but for MATH! I teach math and so many kids just don't "see" midpoint. This clear ruler is perfect! Thanks for the idea!

  3. What a cool ruler! I haven't seen one of those before! TFS :) I usually just eyeball it... sometimes I've had to peel it back up and try again! Maybe I need one... hmmm... ;) Cute layout too!
