Preschool starts next month! So after thinking about Abby's first day of school outfit  last week I decided to create this DIY ruler crate for when she meets Miss C at her meet-n-greet event! 

As a public school Educator myself for 6+ years pre-Abby and Emma (yet still teaching 2 classes a week now) I remember the month of August was ALWAYS spent working! Many of the ones who do a good job and love what they do have to start prepping early. So when I recieved an email from Abby's teacher last week I knew we got a gem! Miss C I'm sure is working in her classroom right now as I type up this blog post. So here's what I did over the weekend to give Miss C a small gesture in thanking her for all her extra work over the summer!

What you will need:
1.5 x 12 inch craft wood (4x)
4.5 x 4.5inch craft wood (2x)
5.25 x 12 inch craft wood
sharpie (fine tip)
527 multi-use glue

What I did:

||  Step 1  || 
Used a "real" ruler to help measure inch marks and lines with a pencil on a 1.5 x 12 inch craft wood.

||  Step 2  ||
Went back and filled in all marks (centimeters and millimeters)

||  Step 3  ||
Used a sharpie to add numbers and cover over all marks.

||  Step  4  || 
Repeat three steps 1-3 to have four total. Then set all four "ruler pieces" aside.

|| Step 5  ||
Glued the two squared side pieces (4.5 x 4.5) to the base with 527 multi-use glue.

||  Step 6  ||
Glued all "4" pieces of 1.5 x 12 inches of craft wood (ruler pieces) to both sides of the crate.

||  Step 7  ||
Repeat on the other side. 

||  Step 8  ||
Added fresh flowers to mason jars + ready to gift!

If you decide to make one come follow along over in  instagram and tag me! I'd love to share your work!

Warmly, Steph
