Using a brown paper bag as a background mat

It was one of those moments as I pulled the papers
out of the brown paper bag that 
Studio Calico uses to send extra papers
when I pulled them out and laid them on top of the bag
and it was all like oooohhhhh.....

Anyhoo, it frames the paper really nicely and gives a rustic
autumn kind of look.
 I also found a kraft envelop that worked nicely too
to pop the "paperbag look" on the page 
and continued that rustic look.
The folded over top was actually what sold me
because it was perfect to add a small
photo with a background.
The mat under the photo is a kraft doily
with that purply-blue color peeking out.
White circles join all the embellishments together and
does look better in real life.
The wooden alphas and butterflies also add to the rustic-ness.

Annie girl in the grass.
Love her 'do.

Studio Calico, Sissix, Quikutz, sequins,
Heidi Swap tea mists.
It's actually the perfect size the page protectors too.


  1. what a great idea i love this look

  2. Great creative moment. Love those!!! Love the page and the use of black and white photo!!!

  3. Did you put something inside to give it strength? This is a creative idea and I love the layout.

    1. No just used the entire bag so to speak. the paper adhered to it made it stronger.
