Hi everyone! Happy Friday! It's Jodi here with you again for Dollar Find Friday!!

Today's Dollar Find Friday post wraps up my week as the Featured Trendsetter here on the There She Goes Blog, and I must say, this has been SO much fun!!

For my Dollar Find Friday project, I decided to alter a $1.00 Paper Mache box that I picked up at my local big box craft store!! They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and for just a $1.00, you can certainly make an inexpensive, yet darling, little gift!! I think this "I lost a tooth" box would be super easy to mass produce for a craft fair!!!

I covered my box and lid with two different patterns of Girl Friday paper from Cosmo Cricket! The colors and patterns on this paper are so fun and they totally look PERFECT with this UBER adorable fairy from Fairy Good Day!

I stamped the fairy onto Choice Buttercream cardstock and colored her with Copic Markers. I added a coat of Pixie Dust Bling onto her wings and dress for a bit of extra sparkle! I framed her in Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities, and continue with my "theme" for this week, I added some piercing too!

I stamped the sentiment, "I Lost A Tooth", and created a tab for it. A bit more piercing went on this panel and some sponging as well!!


I popped her up on some Foam Tape, which you can see the dimension on this picture here.

I finished decorating my box with a border of Buttercream scallops, as well as some Blue Bayou Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon and called it done!!! Easy peasy lemon squeezy!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by and for sharing my super fun week with me!!!
