Toothfairy is a comin!

Sabrina lost her first tooth the other day, so decided to make a little box to put it in (so the "tooth fairy" could find it!). Recently, I found a bunch of matchboxes at an estate sale, so I picked out one and started painting polka dots! Then I added an old pic of my mom when she was little and gave her wings and a wand. Some cut out word, a little glitter, and ta da! I'm so happy with how it turned out, I want to make more and sell them on etsy. Will let you know when I have some done.
The tooth fairy was very generous I thought, and even let us keep her first tooth. Can't believe how tiny it is! It was so loose when I went to pull it, that it practical fell out! Well, bye for now!

Wow! It's almost worth knocking a few teeth out so the tooth-fairy can come visit.

I did a similar idea when my daughter was in first grade and we made them for the whole class. I also included a spot on the back where the could put a gold star to keep track of how many teeth they lost. My daughter is 14 and still has hers (altho we are past the teeth losing stage.)
