Using Goverment-Owned Materials For one's Own Benefit

What is the ruling for using government-owend materials for ones own benefit at the office, small things like a pen, a ruler, ect?

It is unlawful to use those things at the office that the government owns for personal benefit.This practice undermines the trust that Allah Almighty has prescribed.An exception can be made to things that aren't affected by use, such as a ruler.But it is not permissable to utilize things that are consumed When used_like pens,paper,or a copy machine.
