Decoupaged Boxes by Deepal Shah, feat. ba-dastoor Decopatch Papers

Hello folks,
Diwali being around the corner, everyone must be busy with last minute preparations. I am sharing here the lid boxes which created with the amazing ba-dastoor papers to adorn my home for the festive season.
I have selected a set of two lid boxes for this project. After sanding the boxes thoroughly, I gessoed on the outer sides, whereas the insides I painted with brown maroon acrylic colour. After decoupaging the papers on the required sides, did some texturing and stencilling on the remaining sides. I have used gold, red and brown shades of acrylic colours for this project. After the desired result, varnished all over.
Totally loved the outcome and hope you’ll did too. These papers are perfect to add that little glamour and ethnic look to your decor this festive season.
Happy crafting,
Deepal Shah

Decoupaged Cake Stand by Jaanhvi Hinduja, feat. Botanic Trails Papers

Life is busy these days, isn’t it?
In our quest to fill our lives with everything wonderful, we seem to have become busier than ever. We seem to be into an endless race and missing on the simple things in life. As I grow..I really wish to focus my time and energy on what matters most. To soak in those everyday, seemingly insignificant moments and find joy in the simple things.
Desserts…over-rated it may sound to the health freaks, I believe the sweetness brings you closer. Savouring the bite, I  tend to slow down and go back to my childhood..
Drawing inspiration from that old rustic life – the bright colours, charming character, home-cooked meals, and time with family – I hope to inspire you to join me in slowing down to enjoy the simple things with this cute project.
Its a cake stand for the fond childhood memories, using my favourite print from the ‘Botanic Trails’ collection.
I’ve used the same round base that I made for my earlier project (Ba – Dastoor wall decor frames). As I wanted the cake stand to be able to sustain some dessert spillage and also be food safe, I cut a round clear acrylic for the inside diameter and reverse decoupaged it with the print.
The bottom stand is a sofa leg that I found in a junk shop. I adhered the leg to the plate using small nails. The entire base was then painted brown and then navy blue. I then sanded the whole thing to distress it. Varnished it, and stuck the decoupaged acrylic on the top with a strong glue.
I’ve been wanting to make this since long.  But sometimes you come accross certain things and you just get it right! This can be used to keep small planters, or some decorative accents around the house too.
So while I relish the lovely cupcakes, why don’t you all tell me how you liked it, and give it a try?!

Decoupaged Clocks by Ashmita Roy, feat. DecoPatch Papers

Namaste guys

This is my first try at decoupage I mean for real. I have done a little bit here and there in my art journal but never a complete project with so many techniques.
I have used the #decopatch papers to create some unique projects. They are very practical and useful and don’t cost a bomb to create a beautiful project.

1. I took some mdf clock bases and used a clean old makeup sponge and painted with white gesso. I have them 3 coats.
2. Then I fussy cut the paper to my liking and requirement and sprayed the pieces with water.
3. I used mod podge to adhere the paper to my bases.
4. I used some stencils and modelling paste to create the desired patterns.

5. After the modelling paste was dry, I sanded it down with some fine grain sand paper.
6. Next using some chalk paint and sponge I coloured over the areas without the paper.
7. Then I used inka gold and rubbed with my finger and buffed using a wet wipe. To get the distressed effect.

Decoupaged Box by Deepal Shah, feat. Roseate DecoPatch Papers

Hello Crafty peeps,
Deepal here and today I am sharing with you the keepsake box which I made with Roseatte decopatch papers by Bob n Betty. These are totally my favourite papers to work with.
I started tearing with hand, the required design from these Roseatte decopatch papers. Then I decoupaged the torn design on already gessoed MDF box.
Next, I started building up colours on the box. I generally prefer to use the shades of colours from the papers used for the project. So in this project I have used hues of pink, green, cream, white and blended them to give desired effects followed by stencilling.
Once dried, I splattered some darker shades of the same hues of colours used with toothbrush in some areas. Lastly I added few embellishments. Sentiments were taken from Roseatte decoupage double sided scrapbook paper pack.
Totally loved the outcome of this vintage keepsake box and hope you all will like it too. I shall catch up with you all soon with my next creation, till then Happy Crafting…
Best regards,
Deepal Shah

Decoupaged Cultlery Holder by Ruchika Gupta, feat. Roseate DecoPatch papers

Hello once again my crafty friends,

This is Ruchika from Caterpillar Designs with a new project that I am happy to showcase today. This time I decided to work on a cutlery stand using fuzzy cut elements from the ROSEATE – DECOPATCH papers by Bob n Betty.

When I started, I did not have a fixed image in my mind as to how the project would turn out. Instead I just let myself experiment with different textures and paints to see how the final outcome would be. And I must say I was quite happy with the end result.


  1. The first step is to choose the elements you would like to work with.
  2. Sand the cutlery holder well to make it smooth.
  3. The entire holder is then painted dark brown.
  4.  Use 2 step crackle medium on top of the brown. You can use One Step Crackle Medium as well if you like.
  5. Once dried, paint the outside portions of the holder with white, off-white  or beige color chalk paint as per requirement depending upon what type of look you want.
  6. To give it a shabby distressed look, sand the holder lightly until you get the desired look. Dry brush the edges and a give some strokes on the holder with dark brown or black paint so as to give a distressed look.
  7. Paste the fuzzy cut elements on to the holder at the desired areas.
  8. Use modpoge to seal the paper elements.
  9. With the help of paints and a thin paint brush give some shadow effects to the elements and area’s around them so that they blend into the background beautifully.
  10. Once you are happy with the desired result, varnish your product with any water-based varnish.

This holder can be used at the dining table as a cutlery holder or you can use it to store pens and other stationary items. No matter what or where you decide to use it, it will always look amazing and be functional.

I had fun using these fuzzy cut images and creating a unique background with crackle effect and distressed look. Do try them and don’t forget to share your work.

Happy Crafting.


Rose Garden Mixed Media Panel

Hello, Everyone!

Heena here from bloomingpaperbuds, I’m so excited to share my first post for Bob n Betty as the design team member. It’s truly an honour to be here and working with Bob n Betty!

Today, I’m sharing a Mixed Media panel created using the beautiful Roseate patterned papers.

The Roseate collection has some beautiful shabby Chic patterned papers, filled with bright colourful floral images and lots of fussy cutting elements. I am obsessed with floral anything and If you are anywhere like me, you’d love creating with this collection!




For this project, I have used some metal and clay embellishments, all the fussy cutouts are cut from the fussy cutting sheet. I have created some texture on the background using Stone Effect Paste. The Flowers used here are from Prima.

Additionally, I have used some art pebbles, art stones, beads and sequins to finish my project.












Hope you liked my creation, Thank you for stopping by!


Wall Decor Plates by Jaanhvi Hinduja, feat. Ba-Dastoor DecoPatch Papers

Hello again dear friends!
I am here to share yet another project made with the Ba – Dastoor DecoPatch papers. The designs are ethnic and so colourful that I wish to make most of them this Diwali.
Hanging plates on the walls have become very popular in the last few years. If you do not own an antique to display, there are lot of home decor stores selling them. But, don’t you consider yourself lucky to possess just the apt supplies and the skills to create your own unique piece? I feel rather blessed to be able to create things that I used to buy once upon a time 🙂
I feel plates made of glass, terracotta, ceramic etc. have their own charm…but they come with a drawback of being fragile and difficult to handle. To overcome this, I made plates made out of wood. They look as beautiful and are not even half as fragile as the glass ones.
I’ve used the elephant design and decoupaged three plates of various sizes. Just one sheet made me three plates.
Diwali isn’t complete without a little bit of bling. My current favorite thing is ‘gilding’, to add that flash. To make gilding more interesting I’ve done it through a stencil. Check out how beautiful they look.
I’d love to share process and tutorials in case you guys are interested. Let me know if you would like to learn.
Till then,
Create, love, share!

Decoupaged Magazine Holder by Ruchika Gupta, Feat. Ba-Dastoor DecoPatch Papers

Hello Crafters,

When two of the best Indian brands come together, the results will always be stunning!!! When I heard BobnBetty and Yelling Yellow were joining hands to come out with the new set of papers, I was ecstatic. The colors and designs of the ‘Ba-Dastoor’ decoupage specialty papers and Decopatch papers are amazing and you will love to work with them.

From the time I laid my hands on the papers, all I could think of was how to showcase them on a product that would do justice to the design. With the festive season coming up, what could be better than a magazine/newspaper holder as part of the home décor.

I have used different elements from the entire ‘Ba-Dastoor’ Decopatch papers. The inside of the holder was painted with a distressed look in maroon so as to match that of the paper. On the inside I have used the stamp and flower element on both sides to give it some symmetry. And once again, I have not added any more stamps or embellishments to the product as the paper design doesn’t need any more additions. They are complete in themselves with so much going on in the design itself.

So, go on and try these beautiful papers and don’t forget to share your creations.

Happy crafting

A Decorative Plaque designed by Jaanhvi Hinduja, Feat. Ba-Dastoor DecoPatch Papers

Happy Monday to all of you!
So, are you’ll up for the festive preparations after the lazy weekend? I was all dull and slow till I received the Bob n Betty festive range of papers :). The bright colours and enchanting ethnic elements have got me geared up for some fresh ideas and newer projects.
I am sharing the first project that I’ve made using the DecoPatch range of “Ba – Dastoor” with all of you here. It’s a decorative plaque with the shloka, “Vakratunda Mahakavya.. ” on it. I’m sure most of you would know the relevance of the shloka and it’s importance in most of our homes.
I’ve used the elephant and the flowers motiffs from the DecoPatch sheet. The background has been hand painted. I’ve done some shading and free hand painting of the leaves around the flowers to blend the motiffs with the background. I’ve also done some detailing on the elephant with gold metal leaf. Finally, I’ve laser cut the shloka, painted and stuck on the plaque.
It makes an interesting decor for the entrance or the puja mandir. What do you think? If you like it, and would like to see a video tutorial, leave a comment on the post. I shall make one, if sufficient number of you are interested to learn :).
Till we meet next,
Lots of love
