Canvas Corp and Authentique Blog Hop Day #3

 We are so excited to team up with Authentique this week and share some amazing projects created by the Canvas Corp team.

After you check out the projects here on the Canvas Corp blog, be sure to head on over to the Authentique Paper blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today!

“Thankful” Authentique Blog Post

My Book of Thanks, Wine Bottle, Napkin Rings designed by Keri Sallee

Creative Craftiness meets home décor in these gorgeous and functional projects by Keri Sallee.  Hinge two stretched canvases from Canvas Corp together and what do you get?

A lovely piece of art worthy of adorning that special spot in your home. Keri rolled Authentique’s lovely “Thankful” collection papers to create an assortment of roses for the cover of this project.

Finish it off with faux bricks fashioned from modeling paste and a stencil, a bit of floral wire and some hand cut leaves crafted from handmade cotton paper from Canvas corp.

   What’s inside?  A pocket with the cutest accordion mini album tied with jute and embellished with Authenique’s papers and accents.

I love the idea of adding notes from family and friends of what they are most thankful for this holiday season.

Creating custom shadow boxes by decorating the “wrong” side of a stretched canvas, is definitely a favorite technique at Canvas Corp. Think of the possibilities!

What to do with your leftover papers and accents?  Wrap a wine bottle with burlap fabric and embellish with specialty and printed papers.

Create napkin rings and table toppers as well!

    Nice and beautiful project. I like DIY and Craft so much. I got one ideas of taking old boots and transforming them into beautiful flower plants. The vibrant colours pack in a punch of a drama!
