    Years ago before the non skid plasitc came out I bought them from Joannes' I think. They are just little sandpaper dots with adhesive on them. Work great. You could just use regular sandpaper, cut out your dots and glue them on somehow.

    If you look in Joanne's you will probably find them in the quilting section. Almost any quilt shop will carry them.

    LOVE it - I cut 2 1/2" squares in record time with NO effort on my wrist

    Next task - cut 1 1/2" sections of light and dark WOF strips to make into 3 1/2" 4 patches. Looking forward to it being EASY

    Highly recommend - but use care when inserting blade in at the beginning. I think you 'could' do damage over time to the plastic and the blade...so I'm being careful not to nick it.

    In a pinch, cover the bottom of your ruler with some rubber cement and let dry. It's clear when dry and works as well or better than the non-slip stuff on the market. Oh---and at my Walmart, rubber cement is about 50 cents a bottle more expensive in the crafting section than for the exact same bottle sold in the home improvement section...gotta watch out for weird stuff like that! :)

    This is a slotted ruler that is a large square, not a die cutter.
    They are wonderful, I've been using one for years, just got the Shape Cut Pro. Worth the investment. Enjoy.

    You can also buy thin sandpaper with an adhesive back at most hardware stores, easier than gluing.
    My Joanns still sells the sandpaper dots. I find them more effective than the clear plastic ones

    I Googled it as I had never heard of it before and am now heading to Joann's to use my 40% off coupon. I am grateful that this was posted otherwise I may have never known about it. THANKS!

    Youcan alsouse paper adhesive tape instead of the sandpaper dots . It has simewhat a rough surface to grip fabric.

    I googled the shape cut ruler and don't understand what it does. It looks like a regular ruler to me. Need enlightenment!
