The Tooth Fairy Was Here

Hello... i have made this little box for my son.. who was so excited when his front teeth started to wiggle :-) He told me all about the tooth fairy :-) you know.. she is very little and sometimes she leaves stars and fairy dust on the blanket when she leaves. He said.. he would be happy if she got him a toy but he would be okay with some money too :-) i have made him this little box to put his tooth in so it would not get lost :-) i know my boy!
Tin: Altoid candy
Embellishments: Stampin up Ribbon, Hemp and stickles, Mono multi glue to make the paper really stick flat to the tin
7kids just got in another order of Magnolia yesterday!!! There are a few new stamps in the store including Tilda with Clover, Clover Banner, Edwin with Hat, Shabby Chic Fence, Rufus, New Year's Tilda and New Year's Edwin. You'll find them all in the ADDED THIS WEEK section of the store. She has another order to expect receive on May 29 and yet another order placed yesterday that should arrive in about 2 weeks.

It's fabulous Claudia!! Kirsten has lost 2 teeth and thinks it's pretty neat that the tooth fairy leaves her money!

Anki said...

Stunning and what a cute story. I am sure the tooth fairy will leave him some. Maybe his Mom could help with the fairy dust (stickles or such...) on his blanket...hihi..... Wish you a great Sunday! It was way too long ago since I had the time to visit your lovely blog again. Your colouring is amazing! Kram - Anki

Hi Claudia! This is an awesome tooth fairy box you made for your son. Clever idea to use an Altoid tin vs. paper box or something that can crush. Great idea (as always). Enjoy your weekend! Hugs, Cami

Penni said...

This is lovely Claudia

I hope the Tooth Fairy has something left for your son - I think my youngest son has nearly bankrupted her (he lost two teeth in one week, and has two more wiggly ones) lol!!!

Jilli said...

What a lovely little box and a fab idea! My daughter is the tooth fairy lol .... whilst doing her beauty therapist course at college a couple of years ago she trained in tooth gems and got a certificate saying she was the tooth fairy. Once my grandson is old enough to understand (hes 2 in July) we're gonna show him and tell him ... how proud is he gonna be telling his little friends at school! ... can't wait! By the way, i love the cute little Edwin you've used. Jillix

Good morning Claudia, i really love this box, and im sure your son would too. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend hunny, hugs Linda x

Karen said...

That is wonderful Claudia! I wish I could do something similar but I have to keep them in hiding as the tooth fairy (or 'petit souris'/little mouse as it is in France) here takes the tooth with her! However I'm missing the one that got eaten with the breakfast and the one that went down the sink when he was brushing his teeth!!!

Jacqueline van der Sar said...
