Rustic United States of America Home Decor

Proudly made in the USA!

Did you know our wood products and manufactured in the USA? Yes! All of our Real Wood Papers are grown nationally from sustainable forests.

A little on how our Real Wood Papers are produced:

Large sheets are carefully extracted from nature’s canvas, pressed into thin sheets and backed with either paper or adhesive. Then they are cut and packaged into our assortment of fine products and ready to be shipped to you!

We created this USA Map home decor piece using a roll of our Rustic Birch Wood paper.

Supplies: Rustic Birch Wood Roll, 12×18 piece of chipboard, USA map outline, ribbon, paper flower embellishments, hobby blade and hole punch.

  1. Line a piece of 12″ x 18″ chipboard will a roll of Rustic Birch Wood paper. Press flat and remove all air bubbles.
  2. Trace the outline of the shape of the USA on the backside of the chipboard. Make sure the USA map is flipped so it is right reading from the front of the project.
  3. Cut out the USA shape with scissors or a hobby blade.
  4. Arrange an assortment of paper flowers on top of the Rustic Birch Wood USA. We placed our flowers over the Pacific Northwest.
  5. Punch a hole on each and hand hang with ribbon.

Rustic Birch Wood Roll 12″ x 24″ With Adhesive Backing


Real wood veneer with adhesive backing in a 12″ x 24″ roll. This roll is perfect for crafting, window signage, banners, bunting & more!

It can also be stamped, painted, stained, inked, and run through your ink printer (using bypass). Package comes with 1- 12″ x 24″ roll.

Sweet Tags & Card using our Cupcake Topper Kit

Do you purchase kits and then end up using them for projects other than the intended use of the kit? Or, do you have kits you’ve purchased and never created the project? We can answer YES to both of those questions. Our challenge to you today is MAKE! Get those kits out and create something, anything!

We decided to create a couple alternate projects using the supplies in our Cupcake Topper kit. You can purchase our beautiful Cupcake topper kit here.


We used the Cherry Wood Sweet embellishment from the Cupcake Topper kit to create this handmade card. We also embellished this card with our Cherry Wood Tape.


We also used the Sweet and Yum embellishments from the kit to dress up our Cherry and Birch Wood tags.
