I am including here a link to an earlier posting in 2010 that gives instructions how to make this "fabric paper." It's not my original idea, but I can't tell you where I saw it.
I started with fabric on bottom layer (you can see it, white with black petal pattern), then a layer of scrap papers. For this I used various old Christmas and other gift wrap.
The final top layer can be tissue paper or the white layer of napkins (or colors for that matter). The final result of either leaves a very textured top layer great for all kinds of crafting.
This lovely piece is done with dried ferns from my garden. They worked just as well as the paper with nothing done differently. Tomorrow I'll post a variety of projects I've made with these papers. Thanks for stopping by and I love it when you leave comments. You can find instructions for fabric paper here: http://vintageterrace2.blogspot.com/2010/03/fabric-paper-instructions.html
