Being the lawyer-minded person I am, I set out to follow the directions letter by letter, carefully laying out the yardsticks in a pattern on paper before making any decisions. But Gus does not take long naps, and I really wanted to do this. So I threw caution to the wind and just went for it. And they fit perfectly. I mean perfectly - not a inch of extra room.
I positioned the yardsticks so the best part was in the center
then used a small handsaw to cut off the excess
it's no power tool, but it's still fun!
the perfect ending to a crafy day
I have one gorgeous yardstick left over from a bank in Holyoke. Stay tuned to see what happens to that one!
