I waited for a long time to get this little tool - it was always out of stock. When I did finally manage to get one, I wa super happy and pleased - even for the price. I am not great at freehand cutting or drawing so the fact that this bends however you want it to is great for me. I like the fact that it is longer than the paper as most rulers - being only 12 inches you can't always do what you would like. It's sturdy and made of a rubber/silicone substance that stands up to much use and abuse. I've also been able to wipe it off relatively easy with baby wipes. The case it comes in is also an easy place to store it. I was very happy once I got this. :)

This tool has just recently been added to my collection but I really like it. I have used it a lot more then I thought I would. It really holds shape. That was my biggest concern. I have seen in demos where people trace with a ruler then cut their traced line. I just use the exacto knife right along the ruler and have not had a problem at all. With either the ruler losing its shape or the cut not working.
What I would like to see in the future is maybe it being a big magnet so I could use it with my Basic Grey mat.

I ABSOLUTLEY LOVE this ruler! I use it ...LITERALLY...everyday! The ruler has been such a MAJOR tool for when I finished my Vacation album for my families vacation to Punta Cana. I was able to shape the ruler to resemble waves, and then cut various colored cardstock & vellum to mimic the water...and WOW...the album came out FAB-U-LOUS!!! This tool also helps me when I create scrapbook pages how to be creative with the layout of my photos. It helps me think "outside the box"!!
I let this ruler sit for a bit before i used it !! Don't know why !! I love using it. I just love how you can shape it set it on the paper and get a idea if ya like the design and move it a little here and there until you get it the way you like it. I often use it on that thin white cardstock you get in your new albums to trace a design on to see if I like it. Then if i like it I just set it on my pattern paper make a light pencil line and cut it out. Easy as that !!!!

I wasn't sure if I would like this or not, but I fell in love with it the first time I used it! It makes great curvy lines and I'm sure I will discover more uses for it the more I use it. It's lots of fun and has a ruler right on it. It is 20" long so that you can bend it and it still goes all the way across a 12" page. I wanted to cut more than one "wave" exactly the same as the last and this ruler holds the shape until you bend it again.

I saw this ruler in a magazine and knew that I had to have it! It is so easy to use and it can be used so many different ways! I use it for both cards and 12 x 12 layouts. It is so much fun! It allows me to do things on my pages that I never could free hand. I would definitely reccomend this product to a friend. It's a great addition to your scrap stash!
I have used the flex ruler so much. I find that working with it can be such a fun part of the creative process. Sometimes I lay out my photos and elements, then work with the ruler to decide on how I want my patterned paper. It really helps me visualize my layout.
I love this flexible ruler. I have used it on cards and on scrapbook pages. I love the soft flexibleness (is this a word?) it has. I didn't think i would use the ruler part of it, but it has become so essential. I would recommend it to my friends and enemies. :)
This this rocks. It has a good weight to it so it doesn't get shoved around easy, yet it's not weirdly heavy. I love the fact that you can repeat the same pattern over and over again with it. I like to shape it around solid objects to make patterns.
