    I can't believe how much easier this than the way I used ta measure & cut.

    Creativity is the mother of invention! Great way to think outside the box!!!
    Warning! If someone comes to your door telling you they are from the government and they're checking to see how bad the ticks are in your area, and then tell you to take off your clothes and dance around so they can check for ticks.... DON'T DO IT!!! This is a scam! They just want to see you naked! I wish someone had told me this yesterday, I feel so stupid.

    I've used my mat and ruler for this purpose before, but not my rotary cutter. It does look like you are using a utility knife like I did!

    Are you using a utility knife? I would be afraid of chipping my ruler. I have used an old rotary cutting blade and my big ruler to cut wallpaper.
