Am I the only one who considers this irresponsible. Stores that have paint sales have to pay for these paint chip papers, taking them for a use in crafts it not how they are intended so taking them for this use is the same as stealing. I would never allow my kids to do this.

Hello,
I am currently trying to make your paint chip calendar. When I went to measure 3 and a quarter there is no way I would be able to fit 5 down and 7 across.

The video says the paint chips should be 1 3/4 inch squares and the instructions say 3 1/4 inch squares. Which is correct?
