21 Paint Chip Craft Ideas

paint chip boxes

I have a stack of paint chips from various projects over the years.  They always seem to go into a drawer – because they are so colorful that I don’t want to throw them away.  Do you also have said stack of paint chips?  Then you need some project ideas, because you shouldn’t let those swatches of color go to waste.  They are perfect for crafting.  A great example are these paint chip boxes above from How About Orange.  Want more project ideas?  Read on.
