My Tooth Fairy Box Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Make losing a tooth an even more memorable event in your child's life by creating this exciting Tooth Fairy Box. Your child will be delighted to place their tooth inside this decorative box and find it replaced with a small treat the next morning. For a more male-friendly color palette, use the alternative components listed below.

Step One:
Paint the edges and inside seams of the book with craft paint from your local craft store. Let Dry. Use Gem-Tac permanent adhesive to glue together the pages you wish to use for your cubby, making sure to not glue the back page, the page you're using as the door to the cubby or any front pages you wish to decorate. Let dry. Cut out the cubby hole. If you find it easier, you could cut each page individually and then glue them together. Flip the book upside down, and using the cubby as a guide, mark where you will cut the door to the cubby on the back of that page.

Step Two:
Use Gem-Tac to attach decorative paper to the inside edges of the cubby as well as the back page of the book, which will serve as the bottom of the cubby. We used paper from the dollhouse and sweet pea girl scrap pads, but you may choose any paper you like. Glue paper to the top of the page that will serve as the opening to the cubby. Let dry. Cut the cubby door open. Glue the cubby section of the book to the bottom. Glue the cubby door page to the cubby section. Let dry. If you choose to embellish the outside of the cubby door with flatbacks, you may want to let them hang over the edge slightly to cover the edge of the hole.

Step Three:
Use paper to decorate all other pages of the book, including the front and back covers. Let dry. Add more decorative paper as well as Swarovski XILION rose flatbacks in a variety of sizes and colors to embellish the book. In our book we created a small pouch to include a letter to the Tooth Fairy as well as a page that features a photo of the child missing their tooth. You can decorate your box as you see fit. To create the fairy dangle that we used on the front of our box, you'll thread a 6mm Swarovski bicone in rose AB, a 10mm glowing yellow stripe deep cut nugget and a rose AB bicone. Finish with a simple loop. For help with simple loops visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Attach the antique brass angel pendant to the bottom loop on the eye pin. Tie two pieces of organza ribbon to the top loop, and then create a bow with the ribbon. Glue the bow to the cover of your box.
Step Four:
We also created a calling card for the Tooth Fairy to place in the book when taking the tooth. To create this piece, glue two pieces of paper together, write a note from the tooth fairy and embellish the note with SS9 Swarovski XILION rose flatbacks in crystal. Punch a hole in the note and tie a piece of pale pink organza ribbon to connect the sterling silver tooth charm to the calling card.
