I have it. I like it. It's a ruler. LOL

One thing I like about it is that it has a center point so it's easier to get things equally spaced.

I have it too. I bought it because of the holes, and b/c I can see through it easily. Good quality, won't break easily.

It also has metal on one side, which is great for using with a craft knife. BigGrin

If you can find it for $2, it's okay. Or use a 40% off coupon to get one. Definitely wouldn't pay full price for it again.

He did a video demo of it and so I ordered mine online. I never use it! The holes are too small to use for anything other than a really fine point paper piercer. I was hoping they'd be large enough to get the fine tip on a SU marker through them.

Right now I have several other clear rulers that work much better for the things that I make.

It does have metal along one edge but I prefer to use other rulers with my rotary cutter. His ruler is only 12" long and when I cut across a 12 x 12 sheet of paper, I prefer a longer ruler so it will go past the edges of the sheet.

On the plus side, it's marked in 1/8" increments across the width of the ruler which makes it really nice for trimming edges off of paper.

Have it, love it, would be lost without it. I am rough with the rule and he takes a beating. I love the paper piercing holes, metal edge and center guide. I use the grid more than I thought. The only thing I don't like is Tim's name right in the middle of the grid. Tim love you but we know it's your ruler. BigGrin

Mel of MelStamps uses this ruler a lot and she has some excellent tutorials: http://melstampz.blogspot.com

The holes are so you can use a needle and go down at whatever intervals you want to make even marks to sew on your page. A bit work intensive for me to use that technique but I do know some people who are that anal, er uh, precise. BigGrin

I saw a video of a lady using the metal side of the ruler to clear her cricut mat from those tiny pieces of paper. I tried it and it worked wonderfully!!!

Great tip! Thanks! I have this ruler and love it too but hadn't thought of using it to scrape the mat.

I have it. The holes come in handy when you want to line things up (brads, eyelets, etc.) and you want them to be evenly spaced. It's also handy for centering things.

It is a really nice ruler, you can see things clearly. I like it. Don't use the wholes to much.
