Charisma Cardz Challenge #9 - Fairies! (plus challenge entries)


Oooh do I love challenges like this!! Anything to do with Fairies always a winner with me lol!
Our very lovely Jan has given us the the fab challenge of FAIRIES. You can use 1 or 101 - make anything you like, as long as there is a fairy on it!!

I decided to make a toothfairy box for my daughter, as her first tooth fell out the other week and we had nothing to put it in!!

Recipe: Ikea white box, Fairy Do Crafts paper, flowers from ebay, glitter, Tinkerbell cut out, beads,
beaded bee from ebay, Fairy Do Crafts brad, little white flowers from LuLu!

This did start off as a plain white box from Ikea - have never altered anything like this before and am quite happy with how it turned out, although it completely changed from what I thought it would be!!

I would also like to submit this as an entry in the following challenges:
  1. Pile It On #8 - Lucky Me - I've used green!
  2. Cupcake Craft Challenge #80 - Round & Round - circle sentiment
  3. Lexis Creations #8 - Anything Goes - yay!!
  4. Pollycraft Challenge #35 - Distressing - edges of paper are distressed with nail file.
  5. The Pink Elephant #56 - Green - yep, loads of green!
  6. Papertake Weekly - Buttons, Bows, Brads & Bling - fairy brad, gems, glitter, beads!
  7. Spoonful of Sugar #93 - Beads - yep, beads on the flower stems.
  8. Crafty Creations #57 - One Colour - loads of green in different shades.
  9. Flutterby Wednesday #99 - Fairy or Butterfly - Tinkerbell, the best fairy in the world!
  10. Pennys Challenges - Going Green - erm...yep...green, got that!
  11. Quixoticpaperi #16 - Leaf it out! - little tiny leaves on the head of the flowers.
  12. Crafty Anns Challenge #9 - Try Something New - have never altered a box before, so thats new!
  13. ECP Challenge #7 - I've chosen STOREAGE IDEA - tooth box is keepsake storeage box for daughter!

Leanne

What a gorgeous box you have made. You'd never have guessed it was your first go at altering a box. I bet your daughter will love putting her tooth into this box and subsequent teeth to come.

Thank you for taking the time to enter this into the Crafty Ann's Challenge this fortnight. I was lucky enough to be a Guest Designer this month so I am looking at all the lovely creations and seeing how others interpreted the challenge.

Take care and my best wishes, Kym xxx

Things have moved on since my kids were babies - I remeber putting my daughters first tooth in a bronw paper envelope (I think it's still there 43 years on). This box is a lovely idea and such a beautiful creation.
