Get creative with your leftover diamonds!

CREATIVE WITH LEFTOVER DIAMONDS.
Because we always provide 20% more diamonds then you need to finish your painting, there will be some diamonds left after finishing your project. It would be a shame to throw them away of course.

There are many things you can do with your extra diamonds. Get inspired to do a fun do-it-yourself-craft project here!

GREETING CARDS
Make your own greeting cards with diamonds! Receiving a self-made card is already so thoughtful, but you can make it even more special by sticking your leftover diamonds on it. We occasionally see this passing by from our customers, it makes every greeting card fun!
