Hello crafty people,
This is Sampada from Scrapmee and today I bring to you this beautiful Explosion box with a mini album within. Bob n Betty has firstly launched double-sided papers in India and it is a beautiful collection indeed. It has 12 overwhelmingly amazing papers with little shabby yet floral designs and also you will get motif sheet and lots of fussy cutting elements. I am obsessed with this gorgeous collection and I am sure you would love it too.
So, apart from albums, envelopes you can make Explosion box with this collection. This collection has 12 double-sided sheets so the best part is we need hardly 3-4 sheets to make an explosion box..you can easily make 2 explosion boxes embellished with beautiful elements in just Rs 475. Isn’t it a good deal?
The best part of explosion boxes is the surprise kept inside. Don’t you think so? it can be anything which fits in that but I tried of making a mini album, which is actually micro mini…but still, you can put small pictures and do journaling on that.
So sit back and enjoy the pictures!
So here is the mini album inside,
So, go on and try this beautiful collection and show your creativity. You can share your creative projects on Bob n Betty Buddies page on facebook.

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.
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.
- The first step is to choose the elements you would like to work with.
- Sand the cutlery holder well to make it smooth.
- The entire holder is then painted dark brown.
- Use 2 step crackle medium on top of the brown. You can use One Step Crackle Medium as well if you like.
- 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.
- 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.
- Paste the fuzzy cut elements on to the holder at the desired areas.
- Use modpoge to seal the paper elements.
- 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.
- 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.
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!
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.
