What Can I Make with The Grid Tool?

There are SO MANY different things you can make with The Grid Tool. Since you can use it to equally divide or section anything with a flat surface, it really is a versatile, multi-purpose device! It makes a great portable bookmark in your planner for on-the-go gridding.

Specially Designed for Custom Layouts...

I invented The Grid Tool because I wanted the fastest, easiest way to set up custom layouts in my dot grid planner. I wanted it to be a portable, bookmark-sized accessory; easy to tuck between my pages and use whenever and wherever inspiration chose to strike. I wanted the freedom to use any pen, pencil, or marker - no tiny stencil holes! And I wanted it to just SHOW me the divisions and take care of all the measuring and math for me. So I could focus on being creative, organized, and in control.

I prototyped, tested, and put it on Etsy, thinking if I got value out of it, maybe others would too? Almost 500 sales and many 5-star rave reviews later, I can definitively say The Grid Tool has successfully helped both beginner and expert DIY planners, crafters, artists, and journalers up their game to the next level.

...and more!

So if you're wondering, "How many different types and sizes of grids can I create with The Grid Tool?" - honestly, (to quote one of my favorite childhood commercials), the world may never know! I believe the number of ways you can use The Grid Tool to create your layouts is truly limited only by your imagination (or your ability to discover inspiration on Pinterest!).

Because it’s so adaptable you can use it to create exactly the kind of structure you want. And because it’s portable you can easily set up your pages anytime, anywhere - no need to page back and forth to your Grid Spacing Cheat Sheet, and NO counting dots!
