Tooth Fairy Tins

These tooth fairy tins were made for a craft show last year. It was my first time making them and I must say, I was quite pleased with the end result. The tin is an altoid tin. I purchased mine through They are listed under Tin Containers (specialty). I haven't found a better price online for them, if you do let me know! I always love a good deal.
I covered the tin with colored cardstock, in this case I used pink. The fairy images are from the Fairy Nice set. I was fortunate enough to get these images from the wonderful gals who are part of the WRAK group on Splitcoast. Without them I would not have been able to make these!
I printed the poem out on cardstock from my computer. After that was adhered, then I added the prima flowers. I think they add a really nice, cute look to the inside. If I really wanted to go all out, I think I would have put more on, but I was making them for sale.
The 'tooth fairy' is made using SU! Alphabits and a 1/4" round circle punch. That took a lot of work, probably the most on the whole tin. I had to stamp out 3 (I think) sets of the alphabet and then punch out each letter individually. The worst was trying to glue them on! I'm sure there was a better way than what I did....
Around the top of the tin I wrapped pink gingham ribbon and tied it in a bow. It makes it look a little more finished on the outside and also adds a cute touch.
