    I got the top of it half way done. I'll get it finished this weekend. I've seen the others on this board and had to try one too.

    I had a glass company cut it out of plexi glass for me. It only cost $2. :)

    How did you know what dimensions to use? I would probably have kept folding a circle to get it to the size I think I would need? Is that the way you did that!

    That is going to be very pretty when done, looking forward to seeing a photo of it finished. I like your clever idea of getting a plexi glass ruler made.

    Love your tree skirt. Was wondering if you could use the 9 degree ruler? If not what measurements did you use.

    the ruler is 22 inches long and one is 1 inch and the other end is 4 7/8 inches. I'm hoping I'll be able to find some time to work on it tonight. Gotta get ready for the show tomorrow...if I can get there. They are calling for 12-16 inches of snow.
