I decided a long time ago that the most fun part of any home improvement project, besides the completion, is picking out paint colors! While I spend the weekend tormenting Bunch with carpet samples and trying to find the perfect accompanying paint shade, I wanted to share some inexpensive paint chip card crafts from some very creative people:
Jamie at C.R.A.F.T (creating really awesome free things) made her own business cards with paint chips - and with doilies no less, a girl after my own heart.
Or try this simple Easter garland, a perfect project for kids too! Check out Modern Parents, Messy Kids for more projects for the little ones.
And finally, here is a project guide for fancy little notepads, in the shape of a mini-purse, from Infarrantly Creative. This would make a cute favor for shower or birthday party!
Now I'm not suggesting that you go and loot your local hardware store but if you have any of these samples laying around after your next home improvement project, considering holding onto them for one of these ideas.
