Paint Chip Ribbon Holders

I have been meaning to post this picture (and I kept forgetting)! I made these a few months ago. I have been saving these paint chips to craft with and thought I better get to it! I first glued the paint chip to a piece of cardboard to make it more like chipboard. After they dried, I hand cut little grooves, or half circles along the edges to wrap the ribbon around. I distressed the edges and found some coordinating ribbon and fibers. I added a little tag at the top of one held by a clip. The other two have eyelets at the top with ribbon through them. I thought these would be a good gift for a friend or a great hostess gift. It is also a good way to use up some of that left over ribbon or fiber. Thanks for looking!
