<3 My suggestion-check ebay before cutting up old yardsticks. They are collected and some are worth big money. Depends on advertising/condition but think of the craft supplies you could buy with the money you made from selling. That said, this is so cute!
"The yard sale I bought all the yardsticks at had hundreds of them…I only bought about ten. Only ten! I’m kicking myself now, I wish I would have bought them all so I could cover a dresser or something. Or a wall. Oh man, a wall would be awesome."
