Turn a scrap of wood into an adorable custom ruler!
I've been feeling nostalgic for the old fashioned wooden rulers they had in school and always wanted one with a CO+K logo on for my pencil case. When Silhouette sent me some of their temporary tattoo paper, I knew it was the perfect chance to craft my own. It was so simple to make and I love the finished result.
