It’s all about the paper, right?Â Absolutely!Â Did you know you can make a sensational background with very little trouble and no ink.Â All you need is the fabulous Brown Bag cardstock.Â I chose the Blueberry Brown Bag text weight for my background.
I then simply ripped strips of this great paper, making them about 1/2″ wide at most.Â With the paper color-side up, tear towards you to get a wonderful brown bag ripped edge.Â Keep your strips in order.Â They go together better that way!
Then, all I had to do was trim it down with my cutter and adhere it to my card base.Â Here’s a tip: when adhering the panel of ripped brown bag to your base, apply the adhesive in the same direction as your layers or your panel may tear.
I added a simple image which I matted using the two different sides of the Blueberry Brown Bag paper.Â For the card base and my image, I used Kraft Treasures which has a wonderful texture on one side and a smooth finish on the other.
I hope you will try this technique for a fun and easy no-ink background.Â There are 5 two-sided Brown Bag colors to choose from for a variety of looks!
