Beautiful Bountiful Fall Home Decor with Gratitude Folio Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Do you have a favorite season?  There's something special about each one, but Autumn is my favorite by far.  Crisp cool nights, bright blue skies, crunchy apples, golden pumpkins, falling leaves...all these things make me feel warm and cozy inside.  So I was excited when Authentique released Bountiful as their fall collection.  Me, oh my!  This is fall on paper, my friends!  I could not resist using this glorious collection to create a little fall home decor.

What could be more fun than a fall themed printer's tray filled with pumpkins and acorns, flowers and burlap, paper pretties and buttons and bows?  Well, actually...if you threw a fabulous fall gratitude folio into the mix...that might be even better.

So I did just that!  I altered this 12" x 12" printer's tray so that it could hold this lovely Bountiful Gratitude Folio.

I loaded the album up with  lots of interactive features like this waterfall page.

 There are fold out pages....

...and tiny tags
 ...and tuck spots....
 ....pockets and tags....

 ...paper clip embellishments....
...flip up pages.... mounts......
 ...and belly bands.

I had such a great time designing and creating this project, that I thought you might enjoy making one, too.  So I've created a video tutorial to guide you through the process.  You'll learn how to build the base, add the spine, create the cover, add the ribbon closure, make the pockets and add the pages in this easy to follow tutorial.  I hope you enjoy!


Thanks so much for letting me stop by!  I hope I've inspired you to get out your Authentique Bountiful paper pretties, scissors, paper and glue and get your craft on!
