I’ve found it interesting at times when I realize that there are things that are so simple when working in real world scale. One of those things is that you can space a bunch of lines out at 1/8" and print it out and it’s still 1/8" apart. This makes it dead simple to make a ruler or other measuring device. So, you can spend more time decorating them. Here were some we made out of tongue depressors at the Maker Faire to hand out.
Perfect thing to pass out! I think rulers would also be useful for when you are constantly measuring things a certain distance apart that is not necessarily a nice even number. You can make your own ruler with Macphee units!
Yes, they were a hot item. And I totally ripped him off, though not with the rabbit. I had a bag of larger craft sticks/large tongue depressors at home and made them with a jig that would allow both sides. Put my referral link on it too!
Ooh, don’t know how I missed this til now. I really love the decorative edge one. I’m going to borrow the idea, but space the decorative edge so that each point corresponds to a measurement. Looks like a variation on this one could put the peaks on inches and valleys on half inch marks.
All are very cool, and the sticks were an easy inexpensive take away.
