The use of paper as background has been very popular in recent years among designers and scrapbook enthusiasts. Using paper as background, one is able to add a special effect or a special dimension and feel to a web design without much effort. Thus, it is always handy to have a collection of high-quality and high-resolution paper background textures. I have been meaning to create my own unique collection of paper background textures but I just do not have the time to do it. Meanwhile, I would like to share with you the best of the paper background textures pack that I have found at Deviantart Community.
