Scrapbooking Tool Technique: Flex RulerJuly 20, 2009 5:08 pm Crafts, Guest Bloggers, Paper Crafts, Scrapbooking
Welcome Returning Guest Blogger Julia Sandvoss, from Bo Bunny.
Time to talk about the Bo Bunny Flex Ruler
What is it? Well only the coolest thing out there! Well one of the coolest things!
It’s actually a flexible, 20 inch ruler that you can bend and shape into circles, waves, swoops, curls and more. What’s also unique is you can use it to recreate your favorite edged papers as well. Just shape it along the paper edge and then you can retrace the shape onto a different paper. It holds it’s shape, making it easy for you to bend, shape and trace.
So many possibilities! Here’s two layouts and ideas for how to use the Flex Ruler…
Designer: Kristen Swain

Designer Tip: The flex ruler is really fun to work with. If you are having trouble getting a smooth curve, try wrapping it around something round, a vase, a bucket, even your leg can make for an interesting curve ( talk about really putting yourself into your work! LOL)
Fun Waves Layout
Designer: Julia Sandvoss
Bo Bunny Pina Colada Popsicle, Popsicle Kisses, Bubble Gum Popsicle, Popsicle Cut Outs, Brilliant Blue Double Dot Cardstock, Dive In Cardstock Stickers, Popsicle combo Sticker, Grease Monkey Combo Sticker, Popsicle Buttons & Bling
Designer Tip: First I shaped the ruler into a wave. Then I checked to see if the size I made would work with the layout. I then traced the shape, cut out, inked and used a white colored pencils to add lines and details. I cut out a second layer of the waves from the patterend paper and used foam squares to adhere it over the same paper to give dimension. I also flipped the Pina Colada Popsicle wave paper the opposite to have the waves on top for something different.
We’ve love to hear what you like about the Flex Ruler or show us unique ways you have used the Ruler. You might just be the lucky person to win a little Bo Bunny goodness!
