Kraft paper, paper mache, brown paper and cardboard all have a lovely earthy feel to them. The warm, natural colours of nature are a popular choice for bride's who like the eco-stylish look. Unlike white paper that creates a background for your designs, these less refined papers become part of the design. The final appearance will depend on the colours you select when adding finishing details. Bright, bold colours will create more contract and make a stronger statement while softer shades will gently blend with the organic texture of the paper creating a more harmonious result. Whatever combinations you decide to use remember the simpler the design the better the outcome.
