Diamond Dotz® on 28th Oct 2021

If you haven’t had the chance to experience the magic DIAMOND DOTZ® pillows have to offer, you are missing out! These fun-filled kits are easy to do and bring a whole new dimension to the original canvas kits. Simply decorate the pillow with DIAMOND DOTZ®, fill with whatever item you may chose (stuffing, candy, toys, etc.) and zip close. No sewing required. These pillows serve as the perfect gift, party favour, afternoon activity, and/or room décor! Could it get any better?

While these pillows are made to complete with ease, the plastic removal process is essential & can be a bit tricky the first time. No need to stress, we are here to help!

Follow the steps below for a safe & stress-free removal process.

Step 1: Unzip the back of the pillow. Insert your hand and flip the pillow over. This will give you a better grip on the plastic as you try to remove it.

Step 2: Gently tug the plastic upward from around the pillows corner. Use a pair of scissors very carefully to make a small cut near the edge.

Step 3: Insert a closed pen or similarly shaped object into the incision and gently guide along the edges slowly pulling the plastic from the seams. It is very similar process to opening a letter 

Step 4: Once most of the plastic is removed, there are bound to be a few left-over pieces around the edges. We recommend using tweezers to grab these extra bits and pull the plastic away. DO NOT use a knife or scissors when doing this or you risk damage to your pillow. Remember, a gentle touch is the key to success!

And that’s all there is to it! Your pillow is now ready for a stress-free dotting session.
