Craft - Paint Chip Notebook

Paint - Chip Notebooks  
Found this great idea for using / up-cycling paint chip cards. 
What a fantastic way to use these color cards.  T
hese miniature notebooks are perfect for purse or pocket.  
Kids love the colors and textures of them.  
Each notebook holds 25-50 mini sheets of paper cut into short strips that are 2 inches wide and about 3 1/2 inches long (depending on the size of the paint chip card).  
Folding the paint chip card into a matchbook type cover for the paper.  
Then I take a mini hole punch to the paper and the cover 
(or you can staple the paper together as long as it is only about 10-15 pages). 
Using a 1/8 inch ribbon thread through the holes and tied in a bow, 
then glued down to keep it from unraveling.  
Fun and easy to make.  
The cover is easy to get hold of and it only takes a page or 2 of copy paper to fill the book out.  Great fun to see what kind of color combinations can be put together.  
I just had to share - I hope others like it as much as I do.
