Crafting By Design - GDT spot - Fairies

Hello!  I'm back and this time it's for a great GDT spot over at Crafting by Design.  I'm so happy to be here with you today!  The challenge this time around is Fairies.  

So for my make I did something totally different... I made a little tooth box for the Tooth fairy.  Back in May 2013 we were robbed... you might remember my posts about it if you follow me from back then.  The robber took a bunch of my jewelry, the passports, some money and a totally useless and worthless little box that we used to put the kids teeth in when they would lose them.  The tooth fairy comes and picks out the tooth in the bathroom and replaces it with a 1$.

My youngest is still losing teeth... so when I saw this challenge I thought it was my opportunity to make a new little homemade box.  And just in time I finished it and 2 days later there was a tooth in it :)

Here's what the little box looked like before
And here's the finished version :)
I used a great image from Scribbles design and it's called Tooth fairy Charlee.  Totally appropriate right?!?  I used a little pin at the top for the handle and made a little charm to hang from it.  I used some little metal embellishments on the side as well.  The paint that I used on the box is Ruby Deco Art.

Here's a closer look at the digi colored with my copics and with some stickles on the wings
 And a better look at the charms that I added one is a little wand :)

And here's the sentiment from Create with TLC that I used on one of the sides It was cut using my scallop and large circle from Spellbinder.
I'm entering this box in the following challenges:

  1. Party time Tuesdays - Anything goes
  2. Pde linky party - Anything but a card
  3. Craft my life - Anything but a card
  4. Gloria designs challenge - Box it up
  5. Not just cards challenges - Anything goes
