I was inspired by some of the many creative uses for yard sticks and rulers that I have seen on Pinterest and around the internet. Here a a few of those inspirations.
Because I didn't have a bunch of yard sticks at my disposal, I used what was available to me. Paper.
In to this-
This is scrapbooking paper 'rulers' by Tim Holtz and Mod Podge at work to create a sort of modern industrial looking storage case. This is now the home of my staple gun and staples, and I don't mind having this on display in my sewing room at all!
If anyone knows how to distress the metal please feel free to comment or direct me to a link. Thanks.
