Default Printable shabby chic paper - does it exist?!

I'm on the hunt for some printables. I'm searching, with absolutely no success, for some 12th scale shabby chic paper. I'm thinking Cath Kidston style - floral, polka dot, etc in duck egg blue and pink. Can anyone help me find something I can print out to use in the shabby beach cafe.

I'm thinking about squeezing in either a shelf unit or small dresser and want to decorate the back of the shelves with different shabby papers. Here's a link to the kind of thing I mean shabby dresser.jpg

I know if it's out there someone brilliant on here will know how to find it Best wishes, Karen x

Hi Sophie

Thanks for the great idea of looking for real wallpapers and making them smaller. But, how on earth do I make them 12th scale as never done anything like this before? Need step by step instructions please Best wishes, Karen x

You can use windows Paint (should already be installed on your pc) for scaling down your wallpaper designs! Just scale down to a size you like

you could always look in your local craft shop and find some scrapbooking stock, you can get allsorts of different prints, i buy them from ebay so can get them pretty cheap!!! I love that dresser by the way, exactly the style I am going for!!! good luck!

ooh just thought, you can also search for 'shabby chic digital scrapbooking' you will find loads of prints there, one I like is shabby princess, she often has free downloadables, you could download then resize
