Tutorial Time with Anne - How to make your own backing paper.

Tea or coffee? I take both please...
How to make your own backing paper.
What you need: A tea bag, coffee powder, hot water and a piece of Aquarelle paper (200 gr), a tag etc. (I use the tray from my oven to avoid any mess with the water.)


Step 1: Wrinkle the paper pieces.


Step 2: Sleek out the paper.

Step 3: Make a cup of tea, not too hot.


Step 4: Apply tea on the paper pieces, using the tea bag.


Step 5: Add some coffee powder on that part of the paper you want darker spots.


Step 6: Allow it to dry. If you don't have time to wait you can use a hot gun. You have to blow on both sides, and to avoid fire don't have it too close to the paper.


I have made this card using the Aquarelle paper from this tutorial. The stamp is "Apple Hannah".
The saying is "Happy Birthday" in Norwegian.

I hope you liked the tutorial.
Have a wonderful Saturday, and have fun!
Hugs from Anne
