Tooth Fairy Box

Hello Everyone.
Molly here with what I hope is something you can "sink your teeth into." O.k. so that was a bad joke, but it cracked me up.

Today I want to share with you a Tooth Fairy Box that I made for the little girl I nanny. I had been thinking about this idea for a while. I wanted to come up with some type of container for her to put her small teeth in, so the Tooth Fairy wouldn't have to try to find them under her pillow. This is what I came up with.

I had a pair of silver wings, but they just didn't look very fairy like, so I mixed equal parts A and B of Amazing Mold Putty. Mix thoroughly. Press the wings into the putty - allow to set for 5-10 minutes then I un-molded the little wings. Next I took out my Amazing Casting Resin.
Following the directions on the package. I measure out equal parts of Part A and Part B and mixed the resin. Then I poured it into my molds. The resin sets up in approximately 10 minutes.

I then took the wings and gave them a little sparkle using some glitter glue.

I stamped an image of a Princess and added the wings. With a little background paper and some bling to go around the edge, my Tooth Fairy box was almost complete.

The final step was to finish the inside with fabric and come up with a simple poem....

This is my little tin,

To put my baby teeth in-

For the Tooth Fairy to find,

So she can leave me something behind.
