You Rule! Yardsticks and Rulers Upcycled

For years, rulers and yardsticks were given out by businesses as token gifts to customers. Printed with vintage advertising, these common household objects have been given new life in many artistic projects.

 Let me know if you think they measure up!

* DIY Tip: When working with rulers/yardsticks, be sure to use rulers that are all the same thickness if your project is something that will require a flat, even finished surface, such as a tabletop.
