These are cute but isn't this kind of stealing?

This craft I saw on Pinterest is super cute but isn't that stealing? What if we all went out and took these paint samples?

That was what I was thinking also. They have them there for people that are considering buying paint, not for us crafty mamas. I think I'd ask if it was ok before doing.

I would agree about asking first. But it is cute

I always think that every time I see a craft that uses these. Unless they are buying them, then I feel it is stealing. Even if they are free, a person looking to paint a room, only needs to take one card of any color they might consider.

I have tons that I have collected from everytime I have decided to paint, but I wouldn't just go to the store and take them for a craft. They do cost stores money to buy them and stock them.

1 mom liked this

If i was really wanting to make one of those I think I'd buy a can or two of sample paint to offset the cost. I can always use a little touch up paint around the house so it wouldn't be a complete waste for me or the store. Seems fair.

I agree it's cute, but not something I would do...I don't think it's stealing tho, they are out there...It's just rude, in my opinion....
