DIY // Paint Swatch Flowers

What makes a good DIY a great DIY? When it’s free. This way it’s no harm, no foul if you accidentally mess it up or decide you hate it. To top it all off, these DIY paint swatch flowers fold up when you’re finished using them! Free, easy, storable, can you ask for more? The most these could cost you is a few weird glances from the paint counter guy, and I can deal with that for the sake of  good craft or two.
