Using Paint Colour Samples to make Butterfly Cards

January 6, 2013

Recently I’ve come across more and more creative and resourceful ways of using paint colour samples (also called paint chips) on pinterest, and it inspired me to give my own project a go. I went to the Hobby Craft that has opened up in Cambridge and bought a butterfly paper punch and some tiny square sticky pads, and then went past Homebase and B & Q on my way home. While Mr. B and The Boy messed around in the garden centre I browsed the Dulux paint colour samples and helped myself to a nice rainbow of colours. I hope it’s not wrong to do this, I have bought a lot of paint from them over the years and I didn’t take too many samples.

When I got home I got busy making pretty cards. It was so much fun!

    These are lovely. Americans seem to be obsessed with ‘paint chips’ – it never occurred to me to use them for craft stuff, though!

    That’s a brilliant idea – they look really good 🙂 I can see all the paint stores hiding their cards now though 🙂
