Tooth fairy tin

I have been negligent with posts again, I am so sorry! My only excuse is being too busy, work has been very busy and I did something to my back last week that sort of had me and my heating pad being best friends for several days. It's much better now and I am catching up slowly.

 This is a cute tooth fairy tin I made for my grand daughter, Mia. She turned six on the 2nd of this month and has had a loose tooth since September. She is very excited to be able to use it, soon she hopes.

 As you can see it is not very large. I used an empty hand cream tin that I had saved. Punched out a large 2 3/8" scalloped circle(this should soon be available again) in PearPizzazz and glued it to the top.The scallops folded down onto the sides to cover them perfectly as well. Next I stamped the Tooth Fairy image twice; once onto Blushing Bride and the second time onto Whisper White.
Next I used the 13/4" circle punch to punch out the Blushing Bride image. 

I used my Stampin'Write markers to color in the Whisper White image. The sheen comes from a light smear of Frost White Shimmer Paint to give her a glow. I punched this out with the 13/8" circle punch and popped it up on Stampin' Dimensionals.

To finish it off I tied and glued, with Tombo Multipurpose Liquid glue, a Marina Mist 1/8" Taffeta ribbon. On the inside I placed a small piece of batting to keep the treasure from damage and to minimize the noise.
I'm told it is currently under her pillow waiting fot the day/night she can use it.

I hope to get back to regular posting this week; I need to continue with the Royal Blog Tour items. I will be posting the location of the tutorials for the items in the purse so please come back soon.

Thanks for coming by today!
