The other day, I was cutting some rectangles that were 9" by 12" and I realised that my 6 1/2" ruler was letting me down, and what I really needed was a square. So when I my Dad asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I knew just what to ask for.
Today, I tried out my square for the first time.
It was so easy to use I wished I had more rectangles to cut out! A really fantastic tool. The measurement markings and numbers are on the sides and the middle, so it's really easy to find the line you want. Much easier than using two rulers, or the marks on the mat, as I have done in the past. The only thing I would say, is if you want to get a square, get a big one! Mine is a 15" (Dad asked "why does it have to be so big?"). It's like a cat door...a little cat can fit through a big door, but not vica versa...you can cut little squares with a big square, but if you've got a little square, then that's all you're going to cut.
I want to say "but wait, there's more!!" ...
...but that's actually all there is :)
