Decorative Bowls and boxes: These bright and colorful bowls and boxes vary in size and come in many different styles. They can be used for storing items (nuts, candy, paper clips, pens, pencils etc.) or left empty as a piece of art in its own right. Most include a base and a top which are cut from the same mould. The ones with tops are hollow inside.

While the entire item is painted and varnished, the top is generally the location of the main design. Given that they can be created in any size and style, there are many creative uses for them. One such example is to give a smaller version as wedding favors with the bride and groom's name as part of the design.

Some examples of decorative bowls and boxes are seen below.

Plates: Decorative paper mache plates are typically used to add a beautiful accent to a wall or table-top. They generally have circular designs, however it is common to also see free-forms covering the plate. The non-circular designs usually consist of blooming floral patterns.

Trays: The trays come in rectangular and circular shapes. As with all paper mache the shiny finish provide an eye-catching glossiness to an already beautiful design.

Vases: There are a few shapes of vases that are traditionally used in Kashmir. Vases are unique in that the core is actually metal, which is covered in paper mache and then follows the rest of the paper mache process (smoothing, painting, varnishing). The vases should not be used to hold any liquids.
