Tooth Fairy Boxes

Happy Saturday! Today I'm posting some tooth fairy boxes I made from Altoid boxes that my friend collected for me. They were sitting in my drawer for about 6-8 months and with our craft fair coming up in November, I decided I had to start working on them. I'm pleased with the end result, but I'll be honest....I won't remake these! They took me forever b/c of the sanding, decoupaging, sanding, gluing, ribbon work and fixing the mistakes I made on some along the way. In the end, I made 16 of them and am happy to put them aside until November!!

I used stock paper I had along w/ a Studio G princess stamp colored with Marvy markers and highlighted with a glitter pen. The tooth is an image I got off the internet and added some shading to it.
This is the poem I created for the inside of the box. My mom is sewing little pillows to hold the tooth and that will finish off the Tooth Fairy box!

Thanks for stopping by today!
