Freebie Friday: Vintage Ornate Background Papers

Vintage Ornate Background Papers

Today we’re giving away four lovely vintage background papers. Totally free, no catches, just download and enjoy.

They’re taken from a vintage book cover, and feature a beautiful ornate repeating pattern of stylised plants, leaves and flowers.

They come in four colours – two sepia and two cyanotype – and would make lovely backgrounds for scrapbooking, card making, or anything else you have in mind.

They are easy to print although bear in mind that some printers will be unable to print right to the page margin. They are 8.5×11-inch (US letter) prints but should be just as usable on other sized paper such as A4.

If you want to do other things with them, they can be modified using image-editing software such as Photoshop, or printed and then cut into shapes as required.

We’d really love to see what you make with them, so why not take a photo of your creation and leave a comment below, or post it on our Facebook page.
