If you don't want to get too messy then when you are spreading the paint around it might help to stop when you reach the inner rim of your paper plate so the paint is less likely to go outside of the plate.
If you don't have any brown card or cardstock at home then a good and cheap alternative is using the packaging from a cereal box.
