DIY Authentique FRONTIER Paper Blocks

Have you had a chance to stop by our project gallery lately? Keep an eye open for projects that our designer team made using the FRONTIER paper collection from Authentique Paper. We love using it because all the images are so fun that you can just cut them out and use them to decorate boxes, blocks, scrapbooks, frames, plaques, pallets, and so many other things that you may have lying around at the house.

In this first project, our designer painted the wood blocks with orange paint. Then after it was completely dry, she applied two layers of the paper (two contrasting colors) using Mod Podge. Using multiple layers creates more depth to the project. You can add paper on all sides, or only the front. To glue the paper, apply Mod Podge to the back of the paper, and the front of the block. This helps the paper adhere better to the surface.

Once the paper is glued in place, you can add any accent decorations to the blocks. We added decorative knobs to some of them, and some silk flowers to others. Oh, and one of the last ones below has a horse shoe glued to the front. How fun!

Here's another fun way to display the images from the Frontier paper collection. Just cut the images apart and use mini clothespins to attach them to our chicken wire frame. We added a red metal star to the frame, but you could add any accent piece that you have, or not add one at all.

Here are more paper designs from the "Frontier" paper collection by Authentique Paper.
