dthneece

Thank you so much for the great tip! I can't wait to get out the old hot glue gun :)

amylouwho

Awesome! I just bought a stack of different sized square omnigrids and I was regretting it the minute I started reading! Glad there's a solution!

Missy

Way to think outside the box! Nice save.

lazylol

Wow that is a great tip - thanks.

rachel

yayyy penny!!!
big difference huh???

i do this, but with clear fingernail polish.
i never thought to use hot glue.

Ginger

I am definetly giving this a try. I hate when the ruler slips and makes me ruin the piece I'm cutting. Thanks!

Jody Blue

necessity is the mother of invention!

pam

they also sell Collins Brand fabric grips which are self adhesive sandpaper dots, or Dritz Quiling Fabric Grabbers which are clear self sticking dots for your rulers. They work great, and last for years.

Jodi

Very cool! I buy these little round pieces of sand paper with sticky on one side. LOVE them.

Karen aka Grammy Mac

I used glue dots, from my scrapbooking supplies;) Stopped all the slipping and sliding;)

amy

I have no slip stickers on mine. There is nothing more annoying that a slippy ruler!

Thimbleanna

Wow -- thanks for the tip Penny -- what a great idea!

Arlene

Have you heard of invisi-grip? It's a clear static cling plastic you cut to size of the ruler. It covers the whole ruler so you don't have any areas that are void and the fabric won't slip. I tried the dots and the sandpaper blocked my view of the fabric plus the fabric would slip between the dots!

Kelly O.

YAY!!!! thankyou!

Candace

You have to wonder why they never thought of this to begin with, Penny! I've used several things, including the Invisi-grip (which loses its grip after a lot of uses), but my favorite are little green felt dots used on the bottom of vases and the like! Glue sounds even better!
Cheers!

Michele T.

Great idea!! Thanks for sharing. I use the clear medical tape on the bottom of my rulers...but may have to try the hot glue!!

stacey

Amy @ parkcitygirl

Dovely

you have NO idea how much this is going to help me! i was going nearly insane with the slippage!

thanks again!

sheree

Smart tip from a smart lady! I finally invested in one of those little suction handle things and I use that with all my rulers and shapes. I may do this anyway!

jacquie
