$5 Gift Series: Nesting Trinket Boxes with Mou
Post 2 of our holiday $5 gift series! Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for the next post!
Hi everyone, Mou here with today's tutorial.
I believe that adding your loving handmade touches to a simple gift makes it priceless.
Here's a set of nesting trinket boxes that I altered very easily with Design Memory Craft products to give as gifts.
I started with these inexpensive nesting boxes. To alter the boxes, I used these Design Memory Craft goodies:
1. Gelatos® (Cotton Candy, Metallic Mint, Blueberry, Green Tea, Pistachio, Lemon, Metallic Melon, Red Cherry, Tangerine, and Bubble Gum)
3. Gel Medium
8. Some patterned paper scraps.
Let me walk you through the steps.
First , color the small box using various shades of blue and green Gelatos®.
With Stamper's Big Brush pen Black, write 'Dream' or another word you like. Doodle around a bit with Essential PITT Artist Pens BLACK brush tip. Fill in some of the doodles with Metallic PITT Artist Pen GOLD.
Using Essential PITT Artist Pens BLACK brush tip, write quotes inside the boxes. Fill the small box with sweet treats (I put chocolate!). Put the small box inside the big one and latch it closed. And your Holiday gift under $ 5 USD is ready!
