Paint Chip Projectscomments (16) July 20th, 2008
Inspired by those little paint chips that hardware stores let you take by the handful, these crafters came up with some awesome project ideas.
- Stash them: Designer Aaron Tang of Designverb.com offers step-by-step directions to make these great paint chip card holders. I think they would also double as the perfect place to put business cards or flash cards.
- Hang them: Crafster member its_TRAGICX was inspired by Sears paint chips and decided to make curtains by attaching the chips with paper clips - they have an awesome retro vibe!
- Embroider them: Artist Lisa Solomon creates original pieces by punching holes in paint chips and then embroidering her designs.
- Grow them? This paint chip tree by Crafster member Melissa! won’t ever need to be watered!
