E-Z Angle Ruler Instructions

Some of you may own or have seen the E-Z Angle ruler.  It is a great tool!  It allows you to use the same strip for your squares as well as your triangles. What a time saver!

Without this ruler, you have to cut two strips. For example, if you cut your strip 3 1/2" for your squares, you would also have to cut strips 3 7/8" for your triangles. 

I don’t know about you, but I hate to cut two different size strips.  The E-Z angle ruler makes it possible to use a 3 1/2" strip for both your squares and your triangles.  (Of course, you can use it for other size strips as well.  The ruler goes from 1" to 4". )

To use the ruler, follow the instructions below:

#1.  Decide what size strip you need to cut for your squares and your triangles.  I cut my strips 3 1/2".  Cut the squares you need to cut. 

Next, cut triangles from the same strip, using the ruler:

Notice the ruler is placed along the bottom of the strip with the 3 1/2" line along the top of the strip.  Cut along the edge of the ruler. 

#2.  Rotate the ruler and turn it upside down.  Place the ruler on the strip, with the tiny black triangle along the bottom edge of the strip.  The 3 1/2" line is along the top edge of the strip. 

Cut along edge of ruler. 

#3.  To cut the next triangle, repeat Step #1. 

This ruler is a fast and easy way to cut triangles and squares from the same strip.
