Patriotic Wrap-Up with Authentique

The 4th of July holiday may now be officially over, but hopefully the memories you made with your family and friends will last a lifetime. Perhaps you’ve now got tons of photos to scrapbook, or maybe project life pages to create?  Or if you’re like me, you may be thinking about all the home decor projects you wanted to make, but didn’t get around to. Well whatever your holiday needs, Authentique is here to inspire with a fabulous wrap-up of patriotic projects featuring our summer Americana collection, Pride.

I have one last holiday project to share with you. Made this little guy for a special event that Authentique recently attended with Sierra Pacific Crafts, the makers of all sorts of fun alterable wooden surfaces.

SPC makes a wide variety of alterable products, including frames, notebooks, journals, and wall hangings. I used one of their small wooden stands to create a fun home decor piece for my holiday decorating.

The stand is nice and small, which means I can easily tuck this into any little nook or cranny. I did give the project a little additional height with some memo pins. Talk about an easy way to include a few extra embellishments. I figured I could easily remove the stickers and add a photo or two later, if I wish.

Then I just went to town adding goodies to the front. Pride has sooo many cute papers and embellishments, the only hard part is choosing which ones to use.
