    The bit of white paper is distracting. It is blown out and becomes a point of focus because it is the only thing like it in the image. This is a concept you can use to your advantage, I just don't think it was intentional in this image.

    Do you think I should darken the area with the paper so it doesn't stand out so much? Or should I just redo the picture? I am bad at photoshop, and I don't think I'd be able to edit it out.

    well, you have a couple choices.
    1 - You could crop so that the white paper is gone, but then what is the point of interest?
    2 - reshoot and find a way to generate some visual interest. What will be the point of focus? How will you create contrast, emphasis and interest?

    As a suggestion, you could spill some pecans out and have one isolated from the bunch. Have it in the foreground, large and in focus while the rest of the nuts are OOF. Try to get that one nut to fall at a thirds point.
