This is all I have for you! Will be back with some more fun exciting projects for all of us!

Decoupaged Platters by Jaanhvi Hinduja, feat. Tender Flowers paper collection

The sunshine is back…and so am I :). After a short hiatus, it feels wonderful to create new goodness. To celebrate my love for food, I’ve made wooden snack platters using the Tender Flowers decoupage papers. The seamless patterns make this set a versatile choice for varied projects – am sure everyone who’s used them would agree!
I’ve made platters before too, but this time I used acacia wood bases. I decoupaged only a portion of the base and poured resin on it. This is my second project using resin and it’s amazing to see the finished product – they practically do not look handmade 🙂
I’ve styled the platters with coordinated coasters and some yummy garlic toast! Check out the pictures while I relish my snack 🙂

Decoupaged Gift Box and tags by Ujjwal Gupta, feat. Tender Flowers Speciality Papers

Hello there, This is Ujjwal and today I am sharing a decoupaged gift box idea with you. The festival season is just around the corner and these boxes would be perfect to add a special touch to the gift giving season.

Decoupage Gift Box and tags

Floral patterns work for any occasion and this beautiful Bob n Betty Tender Flowers Decoupage Paper Pack is just perfect with stunning florals and bright, happy colors.

I first painted the box with acrylic paints, inside and out. Then I used Mod Podge Matt to adhere the decoupage sheets on the top, the sides as well as the inside. Then I trimmed the excess paper with a paper cutter. Don’t forget to add a coat of Mod Podge on top of the paper too. The decoupage papers has a beautiful texture and I used the Matt finish Mod Podge to preserve that texture.

And, what’s a gift with a personalised message? Right? So, I used the left over papers and created these quick tags. Now all there’s to do is to fill the box with some sweets or chocolates or maybe some jewellery and surprise a loved one!

I hope you like this idea and will make your own gift tags and gift boxes in the upcoming festive season.

Altered Gift Basket by Priyanka Singh, Feat. Tender Flower Decoupage Speciality Paper

Hello Fellas,

Since Raksha bhandan is on it way ahead, nothing came best to my mind than altering a MDF basket I had with me for quite a long time….waiting for it’s chance to be turned into something magical from plain and boring….

I wanted to make something special for my little brothers this rakhi, with handful of their favourite snacks and chocolates in it…..I think this came out to be the best…

Tadaaa… here’s my altered basket using the tender flowers decoupage speciality papers from Bob n Betty. its was a little challenge to choose from all 8 designs I had in the pack and ended up picking this black and pink ones..

This is how it looked before it got turned into this gorgeous basket…..

To make the basket into the theme of the paper I had chosen, accordingly I painted the whole basket with base coat, white gesso….and then pink chalk paint from inside…

I have also gone ahead to another design paper in pink from the pack on sides of the basket…

Nothing completes my alterations with adding a little more wow factor to it….and I did ended up making this gorgeous roses in pink and yellow matching the flowers on the paper itself…

Made a bunch of these roses on one side of the basket…following its way to a little bit on the handles…and its no way looks amazing without adding these butterflies…what do u say?

Hope you all enjoyed my inspiration project, and will surely give it try for upcoming festive… will surely love to see ur makings….

Decoupaged Caddy by Jaanhvi Hinduja, feat. Munchkin Decoupage Papers

Gifting for infants and toddlers gets tricky as well as challenging…won’t most of you agree? There’s a plethora of gifting options available in the market, but everyone dislikes to receive gifts, that aren’t appealing or useful. Personalized gifts and gifts that could organize little things around the children’s’ room are becoming very popular these days. So, I played around my forte and made a cute little personalized caddy using the Munchkin Decoupage Specialty paper collection.
The collection has some very adorable prints which could be useful for projects related to new-borns, infants as well as toddlers.
I chose the colorful animal print from the pack as I wanted to make the caddy for a toddler’s room. I wanted the organizer to be easy to maintain and use,  so I kept it simple…using some coordinated elements around the name, finished the job!
Check out the pictures and let me know if you liked it.

Faux Resin Pour Decoupage Frames by Ujjwal Gupta, feat. Dirty Pour Speciality Papers

Hey there, this is Ujjwal and today I have a brand new project to share with you. I am using the newly released Dirty Pour Decoupage Speciality Papers. These papers are inspired by the trending acrylic/resin pour paintings which are everywhere on the internet these days. I love that you can get the same pour painting feel without all the paints and the pouring by just using these papers and a top coat of resin.

I wanted the quotes to reflect the bold, loud vibes of these frames and chose to hand write these quotes with a brush pen.

The resin really helps to bring out the real pour painting feel to these frames. I love the soft smooth feel of the resin on these frames.

I have a video tutorial on how I created these. The steps are simple and supplies needed are very few and still you get stunning results. Watch the video HERE and create you own masterpieces.

A Bird House altered by Ashmita Roy, feat. Roseate paper collection

The Roseate collection is so amazing, the color combinations and the prints and all the elements are just gorgeous.
I wanted to do something very fun and shabby chic with it so I chose to alter a birdhouse.
This is what it looked like before I altered it.

I didn’t opt to paint over it as the papers are very nice and thick and don’t need any surface preparation. I did clean it thoroughly with a wet cloth and dried it. I also got rid of the base in the front it was sort of not working out with the look I wanted.
I cut the papers down to size to fit the walls and the roof and decoupage them using mod podge. I also used some distress ink in walnut stain to add a finishing to the edges.


There are so many elements for fussy cutting that I didn’t need a lot of extra elements. I fussy cut the flowers and leaves abs make arrangements. Adding them using silicone glue in order to create some dimension.

Wall Decor Panels designed by Jaanhvi Hinduja, Feat. Dirty Pour Paper Collection

The rains have made the air pleasantly chilly and at the same time, the house, a little dull and gloomy. I miss the sun light reflecting on the walls and making my house shine bright! A good way to take away the greyness is taking some time out and change the upholstery and the decor. Won’t you agree?
With plethora of supplies being easily available, I bet the task isn’t as difficult as it may sound. Let me show you how I began…
I’ve picked up the Dirty Pour designs for creating a few wall decor. They are bright, they are colourful and they are absolutely in sync with the present trend! For someone who doesn’t have the time to indulge into some dirty pour art or for someone like me who has serious OCD with the after-cleaning task….the prints are just apt! You can create beautiful objects on the go!
I picked up two MDF planks and pasted the prints on them. Sealing the pasted papers is important – I did two nice coats of modpodge. Next, I’ve used some large Martha Stewart stencil with black heavy gesso to create the flourish design. After it dried completely I used the gold metal leaf to add some rich metallic touch to the panels.
After letting the panels to dry completely for a few hours, I poured clear epoxy resin over them. This step was albeit rather optional, but I intended to achieve an authentic acrylic pour result. Further, as the resin made the panels heat and water resistant, I may choose to use them as snack platters too :).
Check out the pictures and do let me know how you like them!

A Lampshade decoupaged by Niharika Gupta, feat. Roseate DecoPatch Papers

Hi friends,

It has been a long time since I came here with a post. A break somehow turned into in lengthy absence. And now that I have started to bring my focus back, I will come up with some interesting posts in the coming days.

Well, I feel you can never go wrong when you think about designing something for your own home. To give a quick recharge to my energy, I tried to experiment on something I had never tried before – Decoupage. I always struggle to think on something which is not a “Scrapbook”, but trying hands on this amazing  paper from Bob n Betty was super fun. I had this plain white Lampshade at home and I used the beautiful floral arrangements from the Roseate Decopatch collection.

These papers give an amazingly smooth finish without much effort. I really liked the outcome and now this little thing brightens my room in the most elegant way.

Much thanks for stopping by.

Love, Niharika.
