Authentique Liberty Waterfall Mini Tutorial for the Authentique 4th of July Group Post
Hello, Friends! If you live in the US, let me wish you a very Happy 4th of July! To help everyone celebrate this patriotic holiday, the Authentique Paper Design team is hosting a group post loaded with red, white and blue project inspiration. My contribution is this quick and easy to make Authentique Liberty Waterfall Mini Tutorial. It’s the same style and size as the Authentique Confection Waterfall Mini I shared with you all in June. So if you’ve been wanting to whip one of these cute albums up, today is your lucky day!
The album measures 6 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ with a 1 1/2″ spine. I’ve wrapped it with Authentique Spectrum Old Glory cardstock and decorated it with the Liberty 12×12 collection. Since I share all the details in the video below, I’ll just share photos for you to enjoy here.
Authentique Liberty Waterfall Mini Tutorial: The Spine
To create this festive spine, follow these steps:
- Punch a hole in the center of the spine, about 1/2″ from the top edge.
- Fold an 18″ length of 3/8″ wide ribbon in half. Pull the fold through the hole, then pull the ribbon tails through that loop. Adjust, then tie a bow.
- Attach a vintage safety pin under the center of the bow.
- String charms on jump rings, then slide onto the safety pin. Close.
- Place a Tim Holtz Remnant Rub onto the face of the white plaque before attaching to the pin.
Authentique Liberty Waterfall Mini Tutorial: A Peek Inside
Double waterfalls are secured with 3/8″ ribbon.
Each waterfall measures 43/4″ square. Cut Spectrum Tricycle Red and Old Glory Cardstock to 5 1/4″ x 4 3/4″. Score a 1/2″ flap on each panel. The liner sheets are 4 1/2″ square. This way, you can add a 4″ x 4″ photo and still have a pretty paper border.
Create flaps with the 3″ x 4″ images from the collection.
The bottom layer of each waterfall is a double pocket with little ATC tag inserts.
Cover Graphic 45 ATC Laser Cut Banner Tags with designer paper quickly by die cutting the liners with the G45 ATC Die.

Our Family 4th of July
Independence Day is one of our family’s favorite holidays. We all gather together for a cookout, a swim, potato salad, watermelon, games and lots of laughs. When dusk falls, we go to a nearby park to enjoy a fireworks display. We’ve followed this tradition for decades, and we all agree, it’s one we want to continue to observe.
We are so very thankful for those who served, suffered and sacrificed so that we can celebrate and live in freedom. God Bless You, and God Bless the USA!
Wishing you all my fellow Americans a safe, happy and healthy 4th of July! For all the rest of you who live outside the US…thanks for your friendship! I appreciate you!
Thanks for stopping by!
