I thought India would be a perfect place for original scrapping supplies- such rich textures, colors and patterns are at the essence of the Indian aesthetics and culture. How very disappointed I was to find the poor quality of the paper. The only nice stickers I saw were of the different Hindu Gods, and the books (Hindi is a very graphic language) were printed on thin rough paper- not really suitable for reusing.
Then came the revelation! The Bindi – or what we know as Tilaka or Tikka – is the forehead decoration Hindu women wear. It comes in any color and size, sparkly or velvety, simple or very elaborated, and it’s always fabulous! So then I thought – why not use the Bindi stickers for paper craft?! And this is where you all come in!
I collected 30 of the nicest Bindi packs I could find, the ones that I thought could upgrade any project, and I’m giving them all to you! Add the ethnic scent of the far east using many of them side by side, or integrate them in any project – I’m sure this bundle of little jewels will make you happy!

I’m adding a little extra to the lot – a few handmade Indian gilded envelopes, originally used for giving money as a gift.
