technique: faux leather technique when I went to Ranger U so many years ago. It's so easy to transform your paper to look like leather. First generously spray the back side of the Kraft'Core paper with Inkssentials Ink Refresher. I chose a rust color that looks like leather. Massage the Ink Refresher into the paper. As it works into the grain of the paper, the paper will become softer and you will be able to crumple it up. Flatten out the paper and dry with a Heat Tool.
