Tooth Fairy Box

I am happy to announce the next installment of the Sizzix Scoreboard™ Blog Hop. This week we decorated the Rectangle Box.

If you have been following our blog hop, you will not be disappointed with what each of the designers involved have created with this cute little box. The talent among this group of women is just amazing! I am truly humbled to be part of this group.



When I first began to put this little box together, I had a few different ideas floating around in my head. I couldn’t decide which idea to use. I almost picked up the phone to call Eileen and ask her if she would send me more! But, I didn’t want to be greedy, so I decided to go with my first idea… a Tooth Fairy box. This is a great project to do with your kids or grandkids. It is very simple and the supplies are limited. Here is how I created mine:

1. Cover box with Tooth Fairy pattern paper using Zip Dry Paper Glue™. Ink edges with Sky Blue Vivid! ™ dye inkpad. Assemble box using glue gun. Tie a bow to box lid with blue and white ribbons.

2. Adhere stickers to box. Add a small piece of self adhesive Velcro to box for the closure.

3. Stamp “Tooth Fairy” twice on shrink plastic using Black Ancient Page™ dye inkpad. Color image with Prismacolor™ color pencils. Punch holes in top with 1/8” hole punch. Follow manufacturer’s instructions to shrink images.

4. Add jump rings to images. Adhere one image to the front of the box. Attach second image to small fabric bag with a needle and thread. Adhere heart gems to bag.

5. Print poem on white card stock .Ink edges with Sky Blue inkpad. Adhere to dark blue card stock. Attach to bag with needle and thread. Adhere two heart gems to top of poem.

After I completed the box, I received the most surprising phone call. It was the Tooth Fairy herself! She wanted to thank me for designing this box. She told me that after years of little teeth getting lost under pillows, she could finally tell all the moms and dads out there to make these boxes with their kids. Not only would she find the tiny teeth that were left for her to take, she would also have a place to leave their gifts from her. So, please don’t disappoint the Tooth Fairy. Be sure to create these boxes for the little ones in your life!

On the top of my blog, you will find a list of all of the designers that participate in the blog hop. Check out their blogs for the wonderful things they created with this box. Vote for your favorite and be sure to leave a comment on their blogs for a chance to win a prize for yourself!!

Hi Lisa, this project is adorable. What a great idea! Have to share though: I showed a Tooth Fairy album on the show one time and got a note from a viewer to say that by doing so I had disspelled the Tooth Fairy myth for any children who might have been watching........ I felt as I'd just done a hit & run on Santa!
Glad you're back home sweet lady; you are in my prayers. :)

Wonderful idea and great execution. Obviously, being in the hospital affects you differently from most people! Glad you're home and feeling better.

Dear christhedolllady,
Sorry it took me so long to respond. Life's been crazy. In answer to your question about the stamp I used in the Tooth Fairy box, the stamp is from
Ann-ticipations. Hope that helps!

How cute that tooth fairy box is. I'm sure that kids would love to have this box for their lost tooth. My kids love going to their Raleigh dentist. She made my kids feel comfortable by giving them cute freebies such as tooth fairy pouches, smoothies and many more. Raleigh dentistry is about satisfying the needs of their clients whether kids or adults.
