I unmounted some of the "wheels" like SU sells because I thought I would use them more if I didn't have to worry about rolling them out so straight on the page. I LOVE the idea, but I am finding that I would like to have a LONG acrylic block with which to use them. What is the LONGEST block that is available commercially? If not a block, what would you recommend?

I see Two Peas has one that is 2 by 8 inches long. I think that's the longest I've seen.

You can use a 1x7 or 2x7 clear block when you unmount the wheels depending on the size of the wheel you are unmounting. If you need a source let me know.

Two Peas is carrying the new Lawn Fawn blocks. 1X7 and 2X8. Those are definitely the longest I have seen.

I like the indents for gripping on the 2x8 one.

Stampin Up has a long narrow clear block. It measures 5-7/8" x 2-1/4". Or you could use the very larges blog that measures 4-7/8" x 6". Good luck with your search.


Happy Stamping and Creating

I just bought one that is 4"x8.5 inches. It's made by Prima Marketing and has grid lines on it. That is the longest I've been able to find.

I can't answer your question about the block, but I would like to thank you for the awesome idea of unmounting those wheels. Why didn't I think of that earlier? Brilliant!

I love this board. Best ideas EVER!
