DIY Color Box 1&2
I finally got around to making my own color tablets, I looked around at a few different blogs, and really liked the idea to put them on embroidery floss holders. I grabbed a pack of 100 with a plastic case for storage for $6 at our local craft store, and then loaded up on some paint samples. I borrowed a friend’s square punch, and adhered them with permanent scrapbooking tape.
It was super easy to put them together, and will have a box 3 ready soon as well!
The original idea came from Life is Bella Blog, and can be seen here. I think her holders are plastic, mine are paper, b/c that is all I could find. But either way I’m very happy with the results!
For those that do not know, Box 1 holds 2 each of colors red, yellow and blue; Box 2 holds 2 each of colors red, yellow, blue, orange, green, purple, brown, pink, gray, black and white. For an at home version, you don’t really need both Box 1 & 2, so I just combined them.
