What you do

Most yardsticks are 1″ wide. 1/2 inch has measurements, the other 1/2″ has advertisements. We asked Dad to cut ours in half lengthwise to cut off the advertisements. He used a matte knife. // Our photo had a lot of empty space on both sides so we trimmed it to 4-1/2″ wide. Most school class photos are 7″x5″. If you photo is 7″x5″, follow the measurements provided. Otherwise adjust measurements. Cut a piece of cardboard 8″x6″. Glue photo in the middle. Cut your ruler on the 8″ line, 13″ line, 21″ line and 26″ line. Discard the last 10″ of the yardstick. Glue yardstick pieces around photo. Arrange school supplies and glue around frame. Add an easel or a string for hanging. If you enjoy kid’s crafts, sign up for our Busy Little Hands weekly newsletter for free crafts and kid’s recipes direct toyour email box!
