Tooth Fairy Box(es)!

It’s my turn for an Instyle Stamps Method Monday.   Today I will be making Tooth Fairy Boxes for my granddaughters using Ava, an ISS digital anime image.

I’ve used a metal tin for the Tooth Fairy Box:

My first step is to trace the cover of the tin onto some heavy card stock to make a template for the top of the boxes:

Then I used this circle template to trace onto my DP.  I also used a marker to color around the edges of my cut circle and glued this to the top of the box:

 I then cut a thin strip of DP for the sides of the bottom, again colored the cut edges with my marker, and adhered it with some double-sided sticky tape:

I wanted the inside to be a little sparkly and special for the girls, so I traced the bottom of my box to make another template:

Using some poly foam in a one-inch width,  (found in the section of the craft store with products used to stuff pillows, etc.)   I used this template to cut out a circle of foam:

And, for the sparkle, I cut a circle, slightly larger than my foam piece, from some white felt with glitter on it:

 I applied some double-sided sticky tape to the inside bottom of my tin, gathered the felt material around the foam piece and pressed it down.    You now have a sparkly, secure “pillow” for a tooth!:

And, finally, the fun part ~ Decorate your Tooth Fairy box as you wish, color and cut-out Ava and attach her to the top!     Here’s the finished box:

Of course, since my granddaughters are twins, the boxes needed to be the SAME except for the colors!  Hailee’s favorite color is Pink and Joydynn’s is Purple!   🙂

  6. Mary your fairy tooth boxes are the cutest! !! Both Ava’s are adorable and colored in beautifully! I’m so sorry for the mistaken identity comment earlier. I was speed reading and made a terrible mistake by not giving credit where credit is due. I realized my error and I am terribly sorry!
