Your laminator will probably help a TON!
Especially if you have one that can make ID cards because they used that really hard plastic. And heck, if you're going all out of that, I would just use funky patterned craft paper and make it from that! Smiley

Hmmm...good idea, but I really like the look of the paint chips - there's something so orderly about the variegated shades....like a sunset for Cubists!
I love looking at the full paint-chip stands when they're all lined up neatly....or is that a bit weird?  lol...
Thanks for the ideas and help though!

i was lucky enough to find paint chips cut out nicely just like that. they're pretty sturdy too. most of them come from the "hot wheels" and "barbie" paint collections at sears  Cheesy.

i've been stocking up...pathetically, i have about 60 more...time for another curtain i suppose.

This is pretty cool! I've been thinking about what to do with my windows in my room, getting a little tired of boring venetian blinds, heheh....

I've actually been "wallpapering" with paint chips, doing three huge paint chip murals, two on walls, and the other on my door. It's fun, although my family won't accompany me anymore on paint chip raids. And I now have the entire Behr color coding memorized :-S And my fingers hurt from cutting them up into squares. I'll have to post pictures sometime

I work at an interior decorating store, and my boss would have totally killed you if she caught you!

Little does she know i keep stealing them too, why does colour have to be so pretty?

*gasp* Paint chips!

I love paint chips.  I steal at least 100 of them every time I see them  Grin
