Measuring Up!

I really like Tim Holtz' Design Ruler because it has some great features. On one side it has the normal 1 inch markings. On the other side, the markings are configured to use as a centering ruler. It's clear. It has a metal edge. It even has tiny holes for those of you who like to pierce paper.The other thing I like is the packaging it comes in. I kept thinking I could do something with it. So, here's what I made.

A perpetual calendar starting with the month of February. I have tiny clothespins on the side to clip reminders. The cool part is that the center area is where the ruler was so there's space to put dimensional stuff like buttons and 3-D stickers. I think next month I might string a line through the bottom to hang my notes. We'll see.

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you enjoy your weekend!


  1. Cool project Joy! Now I will have to buy the ruler too, just for the packaging LOL.
