French Label Clip Arts: The Graphics Fairy

I’m definitely loving The Graphics Fairy’s clip art collection of classic French product labels–  beautiful, well-designed and yep, FREE to download! I think these print images would be beautiful applied to boxes, tins, glass canisters, fabric or wrapping packages for an instant chic, French style!

Fleur de lys, french stripes, cupid garlands, laurel wreath frames, ooh la la! These printable designs are actually for making dolls house wallpaper but can also be used to make packages, fabrics and trims.

Motif: Faux Bois

Faux bois or French for “fake wood.”   I’m a fan of the more stylish and modern take on this decorative motif.  Great for a gardeny-woodlandsy-outdoorsy affair.  And yes, I’m blaming The Martha for getting me started — back in the day when the mag featured details from Katie & Ian’s Real Wedding:

Yup, The Martha certainly loves some faux bois.  Just check out some of her DIY tutes (you need to close the video to view the how-to’s):
