Tuesday Trend (On A Thursday) - Shine Bright Like A Diamond

diamond gemstone candy favors

They say diamonds are a girl's best friend...but if you can't have the real thing, then today's Tuesday Trend is the next best thing! Jewel themed crafts are popping up all over the web lately...although I like to think I started it back with my candy mold I love to use, most recently for  Valentine's Day treats.  But I'm not that vain...I don't think this post is about me.

Of course, now that I have gems on the brain, I'm thinking about Jem And The Holograms, my favorite 80's cartoon...She's truly outrageous...truly, truly outrageous!

Anyways, I love how Design*Sponge used her mold for DIY gem pushpins.

Kate Spade jewel gem coasters

Sadly, these coasters from Kate Spade are no longer available...but I bet a crafty person could make their own version with chipboard and cardstock?

How about making a few cookie gem necklaces with Handmade Charlotte?

And my very favorite, create your own paper diamonds with Minieco. I am slightly tempted to make a few for my bling baby shower shoot in sparkly paper. She also has templates for other gem shapes.
