Paint Chip Cards



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!
