Default Skinny elastic color charts?

What is the best way for me to make a color chart for my skinny elastics?
This is what I have so far & it stinks.
Should I just take pictures of them all one by one & crop them down & add them to a chart like my solid grosgrain?

Thanks!

Would you happen to have any rolls of wrapping paper around or maybe the center of a paper towel roll? You could wrap them around 2-3 times and secure them with some clips from behind. Continue wrapping around with all your other colors until your roll is completely covered with your elastic. Then just place the roll with the clips hidden so they dont show. Idk, just throwing some ideas around.

Wrap the towel roll with white butcher paper so the colors will stand out.

This is what I have for my colour chart. I just bunch the elastic all together and take a photo. Then I crop out bits and pieces from each photo and put them together on one file. Seems to work alright. Waiting on my order to add a few more colours HTH. If you need any help don't hesitate to PM me.
