Button Farm Club Year in a Box Fall Folios Reveal
Hello, Friends! I’m popping in quickly this Sunday afternoon to share the Button Farm Club Year in a Box Fall Folios Reveal. If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, and if I am OK then I apologize. Between our prolific tomato plants (we’ve harvested over 500 Roma Tomatoes…so far!). There have been lots of special orders in my Etsy shop, family birthdays and making vats of homemade marinara and salsa happening all at the same time. And I’ve just been too busy/tired to blog much.
But I have a few quiet moments right now to share this month’s Button Farm Club project with you. Who knew when we began this Year in a Box Project back in November of 2019 that 2020 was going to be such a wild ride?
As I was designing these fall folios, I kept thinking to myself, “Well, we’ve saved the best for last!” The October, November and December folios are filled with vintage goodness! Let’s take a closer look, shall we?
October: Too Cute to Spook!
Like all the other folios in this series, the October folio measures 7″ x 7″ x 1/4″. But I changed up the folio design this month to make more room for large photos. The pull out calendar is actually a 6 1/2″ square folio.
No one does Halloween as well as Authentique Paper does. They capture the perfect balance between spooky and fun without being too cutesy or too gruesome.
The fall folios are have a great trifold design with lots of pockets and loads of room for large photos and journaling.
The images and patterns are just spot on!
I think you are really going to love the way these folios function!
November: Grateful Hearts
The November folio is all about having a thankful heart. Here’s a look at the large calendar folio that tucks inside the cuffed pocket sleeve on the folio cover. The tutorial this quarter is loaded with lots of my sneaky tricks for making the most of your papers, working with scraps and there’s even a fussy cutting tutorial thrown in for good measure.
The November papers are perfectly vintage and perfectly beautiful!
December: Festive and Jolly!
The December folios are festive and jolly, just as you would expect them to be.
For me, the big surprise is the color palette. I love the shades of blue that are thrown in to the mix with traditional reds and greens.
You will love recording your December memories in this beautiful folio!
Year in a Box: Bigger and Better!
Several of you that purchased the November 2019 Year in a Box Club Kit contacted me to say that you needed the box to be bigger. So I also worked out a way to add a collar to the box. The tutorial and supplies to fix the box are available to you through the Button Farm Club. Contact Laura at The Button Farm Club for the details. But you’ll be happy to know that the box can hold all 12 folios with room to spare. They can actually stand upright so you can just flip through the folios instead of stacking them on top of one another. It looks really good, too!
I took this photo before the gorgeous primitive gingham ribbon arrived. It is a perfect match for the designer paper on the box and at 2 1/2″ wide, it covers most of the expansion collar.

I’ve prepared a short video tour of the folios for you on my YouTube Channel.
