Paint Swatch Heart Art

Guys, you know all of those paint swatch cards you have kicking around from trying to choose paint for various projects?  Or that you can’t help picking up every time you walk past the paint display at your local hardware store.  (Not that I’d know about that, ahem.)  Well, Abbey has a great way for you to get some use out of those swatches, over at The Cards We Drew.

Abbey made this adorable art project for her daughter’s nursery, but I think it could be great for Valentine’s Day decor, too.  She gathered all of the paint sample cards she’d collected when trying to decide on a shade of pink for the nursery walls, and used a heart punch to cut heart shapes out of each color.  Abbey had a piece of wood leftover from another project that she cut into a square and painted with teal pearlized paint.  She gently folded each heart to give them some dimension, then glued them onto the wood square in the shape of a hot air balloon.  A little more paper and some twine created the passenger basket, and the heart art was ready for display.  Adorable!
