paint chip projects

Using paint chips (or swatches) in crafting is all the rage right now--Pinterest is full of craft ideas to use up your leftovers.  So, today I thought it would be fun to share some ways to combine paint chips with your favorite We R products to create some cool party crafts.

First, I created a paint chip favor box using the Pillow Box Punch Board.  The paint chips I have from Behr are the perfect size (5"x6") for the pillow box punch board.  I added a band of patterned paper, and an embossed sticker from the Hip Hip Hooray collection.

Next, I used a paint chip as the background for a party invitation.  I used the Corner Mounter to punch corners to hold my invite, and used the Celebrate tag frame from the Hip Hip Hooray collection as my invitation.

Finally, I created a party planner notebook with my paint chips.  I trimmed some loose leaf lined paper to 5x6 inches, rounded the corners with my 1/2-1/4 inch Corner Chomper, and bound them all together with The Cinch.  I decorated the planner cover with some Hip Hip Hooray stickers and journaling cards.
