Default Cork tiles and paper bark - is it safe?

So, I'm attempting my first paludarium (It's a 40L blue planet tank) and I have some questions about the background. I wanted to have a cork bark background but after searching I have come up short. Can't find it anywhere local.
I have bought some cork tiles. The packaging says they are natural and unsealed. Do these sound safe? Click image for larger version

I've been racking my brain trying to come up with a way to make them look more natural and happened to look out my window and see my whole street is lined with paper bark trees. Can anyone think of a good reason why lining the cork tiles with the bark wouldn't work? Had anyone tried this?
