What's better than being able to create it yourself?
-Diamond Art canvas of your choice (our example is linked here)

-Your favorite sewing needle and thread (thick thread or embroidery floss works best)
- Basic tote/purse
-Optional: extra accessories (ie pom poms, tassels, beads)
Let's get started!
There isn't a big learning curve to Diamond Art, just dip, dot, and dazzle! Diamond Art is meant to be a leisurely craft that lets you put the canvas away for later if you want to. Complete in one day or take a whole week, it's all up to you!
After you've dazzled your canvas, carefully cut out your design and get ready to sew! To keep the edges of the canvas from fraying and to provide extra support, carefully line the edges of your cut out with embroidery floss or thread.
Once you're ready to place your design, add the adhesive of your choice to your bag. Lay the canvas piece flat and smooth it out to get rid of air bubbles. Don't be worried about your gems falling off, our adhesive is strong and durable! If you want even more support, stitch a few tacks onto your canvas.
Time to accessorize!
Now that your Diamond Art is attached and ready to dazzle, all that's left are the finishing touches. Make your Diamond Art purse one of a kind with tassels, pom poms, extra gems, or whatever your imagination can think of! Show the world how creative you can be, now is your time to shine! This design would also look great on a throw pillow or jean jacket.
It's that simple! This is a great and unique way to utilize your favorite Diamond Art canvases to the fullest. Now just sit back, relax, and wait for the compliments to flood in!
