Make some beautiful and inexpensive gift wrap using the plain side of an old brown paper bag and paint chip samples. Denise at d.Sharp Journal posted about this: you just need a couple round hole punches in different sizes. The colors – all shades of the same hue – will harmonize nicely, because they’re all from the same paint chip card.

    Great idea!! What’s the best type of string and adhesive to make a clean paint-chip ribbon? White glue or glue dots?
    Thanks!!

    Looks like she used glue dots, and I’m not sure what kind of string.
