Pantone chips come in an array of attractive colors. The colors are so pretty you might not want to throw away those chips. If you’ve got a collection of Pantone chips and want to recycle them into something creative, you can turn them into magnets to brighten up a fridge or magnetic board.
What you’ll need:
- Pantone chips
- Cardboard or bookboard
- X-acto knife
- Double-sided tape
- White paint
- Paper glaze
- Cut the cardboard into pieces the exact size as the Pantone chips.
- Paint the edges white. You can use acrylic paint.
- Attach the chips to the cardboards with double-sided tape.
- Cover the face of the chips with paper glaze. It will dry with a raised, glass-like surface. Allow it to dry overnight.
- Attach a magnet at the back each chip. You can use a roll of self-adhesive magnets or thicker and stronger magnets.
