As our Back To School Party week continues, we have another detail that is an inherent to schools as apples are…rulers! Although you wouldn’t think something so small couldn’t make a big impression, rulers can be a seriously lovely detail.  There is something about the large numbers and different sized lines that go the whole length of the wood, makes it really fabulous piece to work with to me. Just think about all the places you can put these lovely rulers, especially larger than life ones.  Tables tops,  walls, table legs, even backdrops. Small ones can be just as cute on photo frames, vases and even wreaths! There are tons of ideas you can do with rules and we have rounded up the best ones!
