Please Note:

The papers have naturally aged and have varying degrees of patina depending upon how old they are. The same goes for the game pieces which vary in signs of wear and tear relative to their age and how much the games have been played. All pages have one torn or “rough” edge. Great for projects where you want an aged, used, slightly grungy look!

Each pack is unique and the actual pages will differ from the picture although will come from the same publications.

I use recycled packaging wherever possible.
