HOW TO MEASURE- FOR KIMBA

THIS VIDEO SHOWS HOW TO USE A RULER... WHAT EACH MARK IS AND A QUICK LESSON ON HOW TO MAT A PHOTO/ITEM. ENJOY!
CHERI
remember:
1/8" = count every 2nd line (1/8, 2/8 would be four lines over, 3/8 would be six lines over and so on.)

1/4"= count every 4th line (1/4 would be 4 lines, 2/4 would be 8 lines or the same as 1/2", and so on)

1/16"= count every line... so 4/16 is the same as 1/4, 8/16 is the same as 1/2, 12/16 is the same as 3/4, and 16/16 is the next inch mark.

WHEN MATTING AN ITEM- DONT FORGET... IF ITS NOT SQUARE (THE SAME SIZE ON ALL FOUR SIDES), YOU HAVE TO DOUBLE THE MEASUREMENT FOR THE WIDTH AND THE HEIGHT... IF IT IS A SQUARE YOU STILL HAVE TO DOUBLE IT, BUT IT WILL BE THE SAME MEASUREMENT ON THE HEIGHT AND WIDTH, SO YOU DONT HAVE TO FIGURE IT OUT TWICE. (IF SOMETHING IS 3X3 AND YOU WANT A 1/8" MAT, YOU WOULD ADD 1/8 + 1/8 WHICH EQUALS 2/8 OR THE SAME AS 1/4"... SO YOU WOULD CUT A SQUARE THAT IS 3 1/4" X 3 1/4"--- SIMPLE ENOUGH) BUT IF IT IS NOT SQUARE YOU WOULD DO THIS: IF SOMETHING IS 3X4 AND YOU WANT A 1/4" MAT, YOU HAVE TO ADD 1/4 + 1/4 TO GET 2/4 OR THE SAME AS 1/2"---- SO YOU WOULD ADD A 1/2" TO EACH MEASUREMENT... SO YOU WOULD CUT A PIECE 3 1/2" X 4 1/2" AND THIS WILL GIVE YOU A MAT THAT IS 1/4" BIGGER ON ALL FOUR SIDES.
