Vicky Tiel Paris 21 Bonaparte Gift Set
Diamond is featured in the July/August 2015 issue of Beauty Packaging magazine. The article, titled “Out of the Box Designs for Folding Cartons", explores how brands, designers, and suppliers are working together to create innovative looks for folding cartons.
