Tip for keeping ruler from slipping

When you do not have the sandpaper like spots to put on rulers to keep them from slipping while rotary cutting....use double stick tape and a small piece of shelf lacy looking cushion type liner in three places. Works great.

Checked name on a roll of this type shelf liner and it said, "Easy Liner", did not really tell me much as to what to call it to post here.

It is amazing what we can find to serve our purpose when we do not have the real thing.

You could even cut up an emeryboard,or raid dh tool box for sand paper,put a dab of hot glue on them,or a drop of scribbles paint in the squeeze bottles.just make sure to let the last one dry completely.

I've also used rubber glue; just "X" scattered on the printed side. So far it hasn't peeled off.

I recently read a hint/tip to use shelf liner for marking quilting patterns. Spread on the quilt top, mark for the pattern, quilt and remove. I haven't tried it yet, so I don't really know just how well that would work.
