Hello Stampers,

I am also featuring the "Tooth Fairy" stamp in a collection for a little girl.
 I used a retired Stampin' Up! Door Hanger, but it would be easy to create your own. The Fairy is made using mostly Stampin' Up! punches. I found the sentiments on the internet and changed the verse on my computer to suit my projects. 
Door Hanger Verse:
Dear Tooth Fairy
My tooth fell out,
It's no longer there.
You will find it under
my pillow tonight.
I give it to you
To handle with care.
The container to put the lost tooth into is a recycled Stampin' Up! button container that I have decorated inside and out. I cut the flowers using the Scallop Circle punch. I had to have a few goes to make it work as my punch only cut properly on one side. I then cut around the shape so I could twist the felt into a flower. I stitched these together with a needle and thread. I did try using a die and the Big Shot for the top of the lid and it worked much better.
The Verse reads; In this container you will find a teeny, tiny tooth of mine so while I sleep where dreams are made, let's see if you can make a trade.
The "Tooth Fairy" stamp became a broach. I used the door handle piece that was removed from the door hanger as my base.
