Boxfile Big Reveal

Hi lovelies,

Last time, I gave you the lowdown of the making of the
box file from Home-Made Vintage, step by step.

Are you going to make one too?
Are you? Are you?
Do I hear you shout a big fat yes?

Or do you still need convincing.....
You're a tough cookie to crack, you know that?
Let me see what I can do, chooks.

And now comes the part where you get to see
the Cabbages and Roses box file
reveal in all its beautiful glory.
If this doesn't convince you I don't know what will
.....chocolate, perchance?!

How could a box like this be used for anything
but the most glamorous purposes in life?
I deem it fit for storing uber-sophisticated somethings.

Not for this box are dull household paperwork.
Oh no, my friend. No, no, no.

I browsed through some of my bits and pieces
and decided that some of the antique French
documents I have need a new home.
Could there be a more fitting use:
French Toile with French documents?

Parfait, as they say en Francais.
{Can you believe I just rhymed in French?!}
And I happen to have such a home for them, thanks to my Cabbages and Roses French Toile-covered box file.

Is it lovely or is it lovely?

The instructions specified using decorative lining paper
so I used the beautiful paper that my Cabbages and Roses fabrics arrived wrapped in,
which was their Tulips and Roses design.

As luck would have it, I had just the right amount.

The colours tied in perfectly
with the grey-blues of the ribbon
and the raspberry of the French Toile.

All in all, another big thumbs-up from me for
Home-Made Vintage.

Oh...and guess what?
I have news.
And it's awesome.....

Are you dancing
a little happy jig right now?

how i envy the ease with which you make beautiful things like these, sarah! and what an eye. i like how you paired the stitching on the ribbon with the cream on the fabric. loooove. your french documents will fit in perfectly in their new "home."

Oh Sarah - so many little time! Thankfully I have school holidays coming up in 3 weeks. I'm off now to find out where I can get myself some Cabbage and Roses fabric here in FAR North Queensland. Inspirational (as always!) ;)Sharyne

Lydia said...

Fabulous, no. FABULOUS, yes.

It is the little touches that changes stuff that exists to adored treasures.

You inspire. Keep it up!

michelle said...

Gorgeous!!! Love the fabrics and how wonderful that we can get them too!

Magali @ The Little White House said...

Your French rhyme is perfect and so is the box! I just wouldn't know how to do this!

Erin said...

What a lovely, fanciful box, Sarah! I can tell you had fun with it and I'm digging a fabric project that doesn't require sewing. Wonder what I have around here I can adhere a favorite fabric to? Hmmm...

And the news about C&R's partnership with Moda is absolute music to my ears!! I've become a bit of fabric hoarder the last few months. Shhh...I've even gone as far as buying Cath K fabric from a seller in China via Etsy. It's a sickness, I tell you!

The one thing I don't have and cannot find domestically or via Etsy is C&R fabric. I'm giddy at the thought of being able to get these beautiful fabrics for a mere $10 a yard! Tell your friends at C&R that they are brilliant for making this move! :)
