creating a portable color palette from paint sample chips

I mentioned in an earlier entry that I'd had my colors done by John Kitchener (http://www.pscjohnkitchener.com/an_index.html).  Here is an example page from the book he made up for me. He uses fabric samples for the color swatches. 

These were already a nice size.
I wanted to make a travel pack a bit smaller than the binder from John.  I went to the hardware store and pulled paint samples.  Not all the colors were available but I got a decent grouping.

I'm going to cut them all down to the same size and put them on a ring.

I think I will also make a fabric bag so I can keep them in my car / purse handy for shopping.
