Garden-themed Decoupage Bottle by GDT Khusboo Gandhi


Hie guys! I'm Khushboo Gandhi, and welcome to our next round of Tutorials. And especially for this, I've chosen one of the most interesting techniques: Decoupage. Today, I will teach you how to decoupage a bottle using tissue papers. 


First, you need to collect all the paraphernalia required for your project, like: a bottle, your choice of tissue papers, decoupage glue, gesso, white acrylic paint, paint brushes, glue and other embellishments (but these can be assorted later as well).



Step 1: Clean your bottle with rubbing alcohol to get rid of grease and stains. This will ensure that your bottle has a clean surface for you to work on.


Step 2: Gesso the bottle all over. Let it dry for some time. Gesso it again. Give it a few uneven coats (in case you want a textured surface).



Step 3: Choose the kind of design you want to put on your bottle. Generally, decoupage tissue papers are 2 or 3 ply i.e. they have 1 or 2 white, plain paper behind the design that you need to separate from (as can be seen in the following picture).



Step 4: Decoupage is the art of sticking design paper on the surface of a project. How much of that tissue paper you want to stick on your bottle, and how you want to place it - is entirely up to you. For my project, I wanted to wrap around one complete piece of tissue paper on the lower half of my bottle. So first take the decoupage glue and apply it with the help of a flat paint brush on the bottle. Then take your design tissue paper and lay it over the wet glue carefully and gradually. Then apply a coat of decoupage glue over the tissue again. Let it dry.


Step 5: For my project, I wanted to give it a little texture; and hence I let the creases form naturally white setting the tissue paper on my bottle. Repeat until the whole of your lower half bottle is covered with tissue (as can be seen in the picture below). 



Step 6: Now we need to cover the neck of our bottle. Here's a more detailed shot of the process. I took a small piece of my design tissue paper (butterfly motif) and spread it across a glued surface. I then applied another coat of decoupage glue over it.



Step 7: This is how it looks (see the picture below). Keep on repeating until the entire neck of the bottle is covered in tissue paper.



Step 8: Cover the white areas in-between the tissue paper pieces with a matching acrylic paint. This will give a cohesive look to your project. Let it dry.


Step 9: After half an hour, cover the whole bottle with an even coat of decoupage glue and let it dry completely. This will further seal your tissue paper layers and reduce wearing out the papers.


Step 10: Your beautifully decoupaged bottle is now ready to be embellished. Now starts the most adventurous part! Go wild! Try out different themes on your projects! For mine, I created a Garden Theme.


And Voila!!! This is how I embellished my project! Scroll on further to check out more pictures of this beautiful Garden Bottle.

Decoupage on MDF Box with Easel Card Tutorial by DT Nikkita Sethi

Hello Crafters,

Nikkita here again on India's Best Papercrafting Blog that's Rainbow Craftykari Blog. Hope you all are doing great. Often you want to decoupage the MDF Box with pattern papers but many doubts arises, Today in our Teaching and Learning program, I'm going to share step by step tutorial Decoupage on MDF Box using Pattern Papers. Also I'm going to share one more tutorial on how to prepare an Easel card, which is going to be inside in it and it will become an Wonderful gift to present to your loved ones. It's going to be lengthy post, so sit back and grab your favorite summer drink.

Decoupage Box with Pattern Paper:

Step 1
Take MDF box of 6"x6" size. I have bought mine from Rainbow Craftykari Store. It has good finishing and of highest quality. Clean it completely using fine sand paper. Shake off the dust thoroughly.


Step 2
Apply Light Coat of Gesso to all over the box, Coat only once. Let it dry completely or Heat Dry it using heat tool.


I'm using Prima Rossibelle Pattern paper, so i have picked the color from it, then apply DecoArt Reminisce chalkboard paint using sponge or brush, chalkboard paints give a smooth and neat finish and dries quickly.


Step 3
For 6by6 inches box, have cut the pattern papers into 5.75inches leaves a 0.25 inch gap which shows the background color of the box and distressed the pattern papers with Black soot distress ink or any other ink to give a finished look.

I used mod podge to stick the papers it's a fabulous product for decoupage. Apply Mod Podge in Horizontal and Vertical way so that it get apply evenly on on base and it won't form any bubbles.

Tip: When you'll adhere the pattern paper, before give a one good coat of Mod Podge glue which is sufficient. Than take any clean rough cloth, fold into small rectangle shape and by keeping good pressure of your hand move that cloth piece on to the pattern paper, it will set  your pattern paper.
Stenciled using grey chalkboard paint and if you don't have grey use black and white acrylic paint. I have stenciled inside and outside before and after adhering the pattern papers. Heat Dry it.


For Inside have cut the pattern papers approx 7mm from all four sides. Adhere it using same technique. 


Step 4
Coming to decoration, I have colored the Simple Lattice Chippie from Papericious and other chipboard elements with DecoArt Reminisce ChalkBoard Paint using Sponge brush. To give a brushed look i have Distress them using Black Soot Distress ink. I have even use left over chippies from Simple Lattice to give a unique look. Have adhered them inside and top of the box using glossy accents.


On the top of the cover, I've placed chippies, flowers, Metal Embellishments and die-cuts from the Prima Rossibelle Collection to give symmetrical composition. After that i have adhered them with glossy accents and tacky tape.

Tip: You can take photographs of you composition, It'll help you to make the placements of your decorative products to check the correct composition, Once you're satisfy, adhere them.


Our Decoupage Box is Complete, Keep it aside. Let's move to Card now.


Easel Card Tutorial:

Step 1
Take black cardstock of around 250-300 gsm measuring 5*11inches and score on long side at 2.75" and 5.5".
Pre-fold all score lines.


Step 2
Take another piece of cardstock measuring 5x5.5" and adhere to 2.75" x 5.5" section  as shown using tacky tape,
Remove the Tape liner and adhere the 5x5.5" cardstock piece. Now the card base is ready.

Step 3
For embellishing the card I have used scraps from the collection left while making the box and have cut strips of 0.75" x 5.5" and now stick them randomly using tacky tape , now you can add a die cut and embellish it with the tags from the collection. I have added foam tape at the back to give 3D look. Take a strip of 1.75 *5 inches and add to the inside flap to make a stopper for the card to stand.


Step 4
I have added satin handmade flowers and embellished with diecut leaves using glue gun and glossy accents and added a sentiment in the inside flap to complete the card.


And now the easel card matching the mdf box is ready.
