Dollar Find Friday - tooth fairy box

Everyone is welcome and we love to meet new people :)

Hello, stampers! Iwona here, sharing a fun little project for my Dollar Find Friday post.

I was inspired by Jessica's project, posted on the TSG blog two years ago. She made a cute little tooth holder for her girl, and I wanted to make something similar. My box will go to my friends' adorable daughter!
I altered the box, that some SEI chippie flowers came in. I knew I'd use it some day, and I'm glad I didn't throw it away.

I covered it with some of my favourite MME papers (Alphabet Soup collection), added a stripe of cardstock inside, and a fun ruffled ribbon (from SU!), to cover the unsightly bits.

I filled the box with colourful felt shapes, that the tooth can rest on, and made a scalloped circle insert, with a fun rhyme & tooth images from the Fairy Good Day stamp set. There's also a space to put the date of a lost tooth in.

I coloured the tooth fairy and mushrooms, from the Fairy Good Day set, with Copics, cut them out and popped up on the foam squares. I also stamped the sentiment on the paper.
I added some glitter glue to the fairy's wings and on parts of the mushrooms.

Here's how the finished box looks like! You can see the dimension and the baker's twine that I wrapped around the lid:

I hope she's going to like it :) Thank you for visiting!
