Paint Sample Crafts

If you’re anything like me! you hang onto what might be used another day. You also have a junk drawer with a few extra paint samples. You can’t part with them because the colours are pretty and the names on the pint chips remind you of places, “believe me I understand.”  Turn them into little pocket purse note pads shaped like matchbooks.

Paint samples turned into little note pads

How to make a mini note pad:

1. cut your paper to 2″ by 2.5″

2. cut the paint samples to the same width

3. fold the bottom of the sample to 1/2 ” on the bottom (where stapled)

4. put 6 sheets of your cut paper inside fold

5. staple through all layers

6. fold the paint sample around the top of the note pad

7. trim the length then tuck in behind the stapled bottom

8. decorate the outside with rubber stamps, punches, or stuff from your junk drawer

If you can’t find me Funny that is because I’m busy being Frugal, either way I’m have Fun doing it.
