Paint chips + recycle = bookmark

Going to the paint store, especially with kids, typically involves the acquisition of many paint swatch cards. This last trip I told K she could take a handful because I had this project in mind:

bookmark

Saw the idea on How About Orange and thought, what a great way to use the swatchs and get a snappy bookmark. I used a corner rounder to round the corners and then my favorite mounting adhesive to adhere the two swatches together. A hole punch + twine and voila! A new place to mark my page.
