Nesting Trinket Boxes with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft

Hi everyone, here's an inexpensive gift making tutorial for you. 

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)
2. Gesso
4. Glaze
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®.
Blend the colors with Glaze. In the center, attach some floral patterned paper using Gel Medium. Mute the design down a bit with a light wash of Gesso.
Color the inside of the small trinket box as well using Gelatos® and Glaze.
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.
Repeat the above steps with the bigger box. 
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!
