You can take them apart and put it back together again. My demo also showed me you could use it with any stamp to get them straight. It is great!

Just squeeze the tabs together. BTW, I didn't realize it at first, but there are instructions inside.

If you put the two pieces together, I believe it is about 22" long. I can't measure it right now, so that may be slightly off. The cool part about the wheel guide is that you can attach more than 2 together, which I plan to do this year for when I wheel my Christmas wrapping paper !!!

It is approximately 1/4' high. It has these really great rubber pads on the bottom so it does not slip around.
I often use just half of the ruler/guide on smaller projects like a card.

I suppose so, if all you're wheeling is a card front, probably, but unless the ruler is clear, it can be somewhat challenging to line up properly.

Also, a regular ruler cannot extend diagonally across a 12 x 12" page, nor can it be snapped together at 45 degree angle for the mitered corner feature.

I was skeptical at first, but now that I have one, I love it! Works beautifully and SU! has it priced lower than MSRP.

I LOVE my wheel guide! I just bought my very first wheel.... the jumbo wheel & 'Wash Day'.... I've decided to make 2-4-6-8 boxes for a baby shower that I am hosting... Having the wheel guide helps SO much with getting the image exactly where I need it... This is a LIFE saver!!!

Definately invest!

The wheel guide rocks!!!!!

I was always getting marks from the sides of the rubber on my paper because I was pressing to the side, not any more

I also like that it is great to use with scoring paper-like for 2-4-6-8 boxes. The rubber bottoms help keep teh stratight edge from moving with a lot less pressure. I LOVE mine!

I have a question.......when you are wheeling the very bottom of a card, how do you keep your cardstock from moving?

Thanks
Nina

Well, here I am over 2 years later asking the same question about the wheel guide. I guess that would help my stamping quite a bit. I'll buy!
