My nephew, when informed at age 10 of the dubious existence of Santa Claus, took the news very well. However, when told in the same conversation that the Tooth Fairy was also only a magical children's character, he was distraught! I guess there's nothing quite like finding money under the pillow where your tooth used to be - I often wish there was an adult equivalent!
So today's post is all about a busy little Tooth Fairy, who is just flying in with her latest acquisition for her tooth box:
Other: Not a lot! No papers, just some scraps of pearlised card and a few self-adhesive pearls from my stash. Plus the secret ingredient - a 1.5 cm strip of acetate!
I so wanted this little fairy to fly. She's adorable and although I know I could have come up with a really cute card, I just thought she should fly! I also thought there should be somewhere for her to store her 'gems', so here she is, flying in to put her latest shiny tooth in her tooth box.
The box is only 2cm high/wide/deep - a tiny little thing - sandwiched between two scalloped squares cut with my Nestabilities dies - the smallest one.
There's a little piece of ribbon wrapped around it and the 'lid' is decorated with pearls, fit for a toothy princess.
The strip of acetate is bent 90 degrees at one end and secured underneath the base of the box. Tooth Fairy is attached to the other end and appears to be flying (I hope!).
