Believe it or not, I made this background paper! All you need is some play money (check the dollar store) and some Modge Podge. Just put a thin layer of MP down on cardstock and lay down the play money. Put another thin layer of MP over top and let it dry. It is so detailed and has a nice texture when it's dry.
And here's the inside. I like cutting a scrap of the handmade background to fit the inside of a card. It really adds a nice detail element with very little effort.
Hope you enjoyed this idea! Have a great day!
