Authentique Bountiful Fall Home Decor Tutorial
Hello, Friends! The month of August is slipping away, and fall is quietly coming to town. Autumn is my favorite season. I always want to “feather my nest” and make everything feel all cozy inside. Lucky for me, I have a glorious new paper collection from Authentique to play with! Let’s get out our Authentique paper pretties, scissors and glue. It’s time to get our craft with this Authentique Bountiful Fall Home Decor Tutorial for you.
Oh, but I do love fall the most! Altering this 12″ x 12″ printer’s tray is such a great way to get your home ready for fall. Each compartment is like a room in a mini art gallery. Add pumpkins and fall flowers, acorns and buttons, banners and burlap… and surround them all with gorgeous Authentique Bountiful papers.
How do you add texture to your home decor? It’s easy when you combine textiles, fibers, wood, and found items. Mixing and matching textures is a great way to add a rustic, homey vibe to your art work.
Tap pumpkins with bronze pigment ink to give them a copper glow.
Give your home decor some festive flair with a mini banner.
Mmmmm…..sweater weather! Somebody grab me a mug of hot cider!
I took this printer’s tray to the next level by removing one of the inserts and adding a fall themed folio. Held in place with velcro dots, the folio can easily be removed. It’s the perfect place to preserve all your favorite fall photos, recipes and memorabilia.

Oh, for Heaven’s sake, Kathy! You are amazing! Not only do you decorate your little heart out with the tray, you make this magnificent album with so many pages, flips and tucks I can’t even count them all! I am saving the how to video for a rainy day. Just need to figure out how to retrieve my saved videos! What an AWE INSPIRING album and tray! How in the world do you come up with so many different ideas! Hugs!
Hi Kathy – this is so cute and a new idea for a project! I always love the fall colors. I have never seen the Authenique paper sold here in our stores, but I’m sure I can get it on line. One more thing, you may know this already, but when I click on your first video which is the project preview, the expand window to a full screen view is not available. This may be intentional on your part, not sure. But as you know, it’s really nice to view projects in a full screen to see the details up close. Love this!
Wow, Kathy, this is incredible. The printer’s tray design is such a great idea, especially with the altered section. Adding the folio is just perfect for adding a touch of special moments to this home decor. What a great gift this would make. . .altered for any season–one of each! Thanks for sharing this.
Another winner – love it!
