Background of Labels

If this doesn’t make you feel like a trash collector, nothing will!

Collect a variety of labels and miscellaneous pieces of paper — labels from canned goods; new clothing tags; sales receipts; panels from boxes of dry food such as pasta, cereal or pudding; packaging from tissue paper, toothpaste, soaps; any other unusual items that come to mind. Arrange on heavyweight paper for a totally original background, rather like a personal journal of paper consumption. Glue with YES adhesive.

A second option is to fill in a large piece of sturdy paper or matboard with your ‘paper-abelia’ patchwork. Then cut into smaller pieces of background. This could even be used for ATC backgrounds if you are careful to get several different labels on this small scale projects.
