Believe in Magic

Hi!  Happy Valentine's Day!!

In between all that PTI anniversary fun, I did manage to somehow make something with My Favorite Things sketch above.

I made a little tooth fairy card and box for Cheryl's son.  (Cheryl, try not to look so closely so you can be surprised when you receive it in the mail).  I was looking for a tooth fairy stamp set but couldn't really find any from my favorite stamp companies.  Maybe they should try to make one?  But when I saw this Pure Innocence stamp, I thought she was cute and could be a tooth fairy.

I tried not to pick such girly colors but it's hard to avoid all the cute stuff.

There's a little blue pearl in her wand and some stickles on her wings.  Then I had to stop with all the pretty embellishments or it would be too girly.

I used a tin that used to hold some paper flowers.  It's a pretty good size. 

I used Just Rite Stampers to personalize the box a bit.

Then on the inside, I made a felt pillow.  I stitched an X in the middle with yarn because it was too poofy and the lid didn't close well.  The X made the pillow just a bit skinnier and marks a good place to put his tooth.  But my sewing is a bit messy so don't look too closely.  And the tin is big so you could even fit larger bills in it and not just coins.  What's the going rate for a tooth these days?  We gave my daughter $10 for her first tooth.  A bit crazy, I know but it took so long for her first one to come out.  Now she gets $5 a tooth.  Maybe that's a bit much too?

Thanks for reading and have a great week!

Awwww, soooo cute! Thanks a lot! I'm such a bad mommy, I don't even make a tooth box for my own kid! How long does it take for a tooth to fall out anyhow? It's been 2 weeks and it's still hanging in there! I'm already seeing the dollar signs for braces flashing before my eyes. I might need to call the dentist to just get it removed already, that might require the tooth fairy to shell out some big bucks depending on how much drama will be involved.
