A Cool Hack

I wanted to make sure the mini square inside a square blocks were the right size, so I figured out a neat "hack."

I made the outer square bigger than needed.

I taped a couple of rulers together so they would be the width of what I wanted, then I "outlined" the area of the inside square.

This had the added benefit of allowing me to check several measurements at once.

Just because instructions may tell you do to something one way, you should give yourself permission to do it in a way that works for you as long as the end result is the desired one.

I have deliberately NOT told you WHAT this refers to, or given you specific instructions to recreate it because the point of this post is to get you to THINK about how you work and how YOU can use the tools you already have to make a task easier.

Yes! Great idea and good way to share the concept of making what you have work for you.
