I know this should be a scrapbook page, but I am going to be in and out of town for the next couple of weeks, so, the next two weeks, instead of a scrapbook layout at the end of the week, there will be a craft idea or "what is coming up" on the blog. So, enjoy and I will be back to do some layouts in a couple of weeks.
I know on Pinterest I have seen MANY ideas using paint chip cards! From learning tools for kids to any type of crafts. My kids and I made Christmas ornament trees, snowmen ornaments and also bookmarks with their fingerprints on them for their grandmothers. A friend of mine walked into Sherwin Williams one day and said, "Look, here's the deal. I need A LOT of paint chips for a craft idea for my kids. How can I purchase them?". Well, the man replied by saying that she could have as many as she wanted for free and she left the store with well over 200 (If I had to guess) of them. So, the kids and I went to Lowe's the other day and I snagged a few of my own. They come in so many different shapes, colors, sizes and textures. So, I went "shopping" through the paint chips. I picked up several colors and also some that had several textures. This picture above is what I picked up. I plan to use them on cards, scrapbook pages and some crafts with the kids. I am so excited to use them. I see great potential and to think, they are FREE! That is the best part!
Have fun coming up with ways in incorporate paint chips into your crafts. Have a great day and remember, it is always homemade, especially when thinking out of the box!
