Over the years, we have amassed quite a collection of colorful paint chips with the intention of using them to craft something, someday. Well, Flickr member Urban Woodswalker has finally inspired us to dig them out and get busy.
Made from paint chip samples and felt, this cute and useful little book contains photocopies of occupational therapy hand exercises. According to the photographer, "I believe everyday ordinary things can be made beautiful. I needed something to make these painful, dull exercises a little bit brighter and fun .... I wanted to carry my exercises around with me and came up with this idea." We love it and think a colorful paint chip book could be a fun way to send a card or letter, too.
