Tooth Fairy tin

I found out via facebook last night that my eldest granddaughter Sierra lost 2 teeth yesterday.  I had emptied 3 small round tins with flowers the other day and kept the tins (the flowers are going to Brooke and Sierra for their cardmaking stash).

I rummaged through my nestibilities and found a circle die that was just the right size to adhere to the tins to decorate.  I also used some pink and white ribbon, some rhinestones and silk roses from my stash and came up with this:

The tins are 1 3/4 " across at the widest point.  I have since added Sierra's initial to the top.  The initial is a light blue sticker.

I will need to make 2 more of these for Brooke and Amber.  I'm not sure if I'll use the same colours.  I'm thinking of using light blue for Brooke with a pink initial, light blue and white ribbon. It will be at least 2 more years before Brooke loses a tooth and about 4 years before Amber does.

This tin came together fairly quickly and I had a blast making it for Sierra.  I'm sure she will like it.

Thanks for stopping by!

What a great idea! I want to use your idea for my G-daughter when she is old enough. Very clever. Thanks for sharing.
