Tooth Keeper

This week over at Fairy Fun Fridays the challenge is to make a 3D Project, so I turned this cute little tin I got while we were on vacation in Alberta at a candy store called Candy Bouquet in St. Albert.  It is much like an altoid tin.

I turned it into this little tooth keeper, much prettier to hold the tooth/coin and much easier than disturbing your child while making the exchange.  The tooth fairy does need our help now and again.  The image I used for this project is called .... you guessed it Tooth Fairy and can be found at Prairie Fairy Designs.

Here is a close up showing that I printed the image a second time and layered it for a nice effect.  I put matching paper on the bottom of the tin and a multi colored ribbon around the edge.

Make sure you check the rest of the design team's work at Fairy Fun Fridays and enter to win the fabulous prizes that the Prairie Fairy offers.  We would love to see your work!!
