I have wanted to do this cute idea for a while but I needed to get supplies, so it was put off for a while. So finally I went to Home Depot and sneakily got a ton of big paint swatches. I took so many that I was surprised no one cut me off, although I did get some weird looks from some other paint shoppers. It was probably the fact that I picked colors at random and did not stick to one hue.
I got this idea from a tutorial that looked so cute! I was really excited about this craft idea because for some reason I have this weird fascination with paint swatches.
Anyway all you need is:
- Paint Swatches - at least two (top and bottom)
- x-acto knife
- glue or double stick tape
Turns out that to make a perfect box you need to be incredibly precise with the measurements. Or, if you do not care which swatch top goes with each swatch bottom, just make a bunch of each and put them together with whichever ones fit. This is what I ultimately did.
So here is my caution: If you are a perfectionist like me do not do this particular craft or you may find yourself frustrated... with an x-acto knife.
On the bright side the boxes look okay and I had fun taking pictures of them. Maybe it wasn't a complete failure :)
