Make Ruler Valentine Gifts

If you prefer to hand out candy-free treats for Valentine’s Day, Brittany at Pretty Handy Girl offers up this clever idea. Chopping an inexpensive yard stick into smaller pieces makes this a budget-friendly project (each yard stick yields 9 Valentines), even if you need to make lots and lots of them to have enough to go around. You could also add a lanyard hook or keyring to each one to make it easy to attach to a backpack or set of keys! [how to make ruler Valentine gifts]
