I pinned this calendar idea (the blog link on the pin wasn't working) a while back and after completely forgetting about picture day...I decided it was time to get this project done. Now it hangs on the fridge where I can see it. Many times a day.
This only took about an hour or do to do! First I went to Lowes to get paint chips. I used the ones that have three shades on them. I pulled out 7 of the one I liked and then 7 of the next shade lighter.
Next I ran across the street to Wally World and picked up a 16 x 20 poster frame and a roll of wedding wrapping paper. (lay the frame on the floor and place your chips how you'd like them invade you need a larger frame)
When you're ready trim all words off the paint chips. Cover the cardboard backing for the frame with the wrapping paper. Attach the paint chops. I used my double sided tape roller for everything.
Place it in the frame and attach magnetic strips all around and there you have it! I love to use the Crayola Window Markers with it.
Don't you just love all the great ideas popping up with paint chips?
