You didn't mention what you cut the squares out with, and I was thinking one of those square punches would be awesome for this.  I could keep it with me and when I find somethin I want, *punch*!  Also they come in various sizes so your squares could be any size you want, or even all different sizes if you have several of them!

I just used regular scissors.  It's actually really easy to cut with scissors because then you can trim them to fit what you want or you can cut out a bigger swatch and trim it to size, but you could totally use a punch too.  Maybe even doing stars or circles would be neat too!  Smiley

At the risk of seeming like a one trick pony, I enjoyed making my rainbow table tiles so much that I wanted to do one more thing before I moved on.  Smiley

A friend of mine is in the process of moving and she is currently hitting a lot of really depressing setbacks and snags along the way.  She was also instrumental in helping donate catalogs for my table tiles so I wanted to make her something to cheer her up and to say thanks.  She's really into photography and is starting to experiment in modling herself so I made her a picture frame she can hang in her new house!

I used the same technique as I did with my collage tiles only this time it was a lot easier because I could use magazines and not just catalogs!  Smiley  I cut out small images for each color and glued them to the piece of mat that came with the picture frame.  This time though instead of abruptly changing colors, I wanted to see if I could make a more blended appearance so between each color is a small section of transitional colors.  This was a lot harder than I thought it would be because the mat is so much smaller than the paper I was previously using!  Overall though I think it turned out really well and I am going to be giving it to her today when she comes over.

It can be hung this way too.  Sorry it's a little blurry...  Hope she likes it!
And for those of you who want more info on how I did this or are wondering "why the heck is this chick talking about table tiles?" here is a link to my previous project that inspired this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=307597.0
