A Paint Chip Craze!

Colourful fun!
There is something strange going on out there.
 So many people, myself included, are being charmed by paint chips.  
Yes paint chips.  Why you ask?  Well I don’t really know.
But they are kind of pretty.

And there are a few cute things you can do with them.  I don’t know about you, but I have a stack of them around, because I’m constantly thinking about painting something.  And the kids seem to bring them home from Home Depot without my knowledge!

So what to do with them?  How about a bookmark!  Too funny!  
The kids loved them anyways!
Having fun with my camera and reusing paint chips today!

Here’s How-To:
With a hole puncher, punch a hole at the top of the strip.
Punch in a brad.
Pull through some thread (I used embroidery thread).
Tie on a bead or button.
You have a fun bookmark!

Have a colourful day!

    The bookmarks turned out great! So bright and simple, and the best part is they’re free! I made a spring decoration out of paint chips and an empty cereal box…check it out if you want!

    What a great idea! We have about a zillion of those things lying around the house, and nine children and one mom who all read books — we are in need of bookmarks, so this is perfect for us! Thanks for sharing.

    Love your blog. I’m a new follower 🙂
