Once you finally select Sharkey Gray over Francesca as your new living room paint color what to do with all those spare paint chips? Make tent cards of course! They're colorful and the paper is thick enough to stand without propping.
- When can you use a tent card? I use mine to identify foods on a buffet table, no more mistaking wasabi for guacamole. At our last family pot luck to let guests know what was in the dish I simply folded the paint chips in half then wrote on them.
- At other gatherings, where guests have specialty diets, I've simply used a single color to clearly identify the vegan dishes. Identifying foods is not the only use, they make colorful and creative place cards. Try them for your next sit down dinner.
- In addition to tent cards you can use them as gift tags. Simply cut a circle from the colored section then punch a hole. String a ribbon through then write to/from and you're done!
- Lastly if you're looking for some confetti to fill a party pinata look no further. Grab a hole punch like this star shaped one by Martha.
