Mini lugagge bag for the Tooth Fairy.
My youngest child lost his first tooth, and just because this is one the "last firsts", I decided to make something extra special for this occasion. I always loved miniatures, and one of the ideas I found on Crafster.org was a matchbox luggage bag. I had no matchboxes in the house, so I adapted for a bigger version, with 2 boxes of Sugar free Je-llos. I cut the inside parts and made the two parts of the bag. To make it neater, I cut two pieces of fabric to cover the inside. I used my hot glue gun for this project. Using a nice print card stock, I covered the outside. A brown construction paper was ideal to make the parts resembling leather. The two parts got connected in the bottom with two pieces of paper. To make the bag close, I used little hooks for clothes, tied to a stretchy string, and glued to the bag. The glue was covered with pieces of gold paper, and the handle on top also helps cover this area. Then to decorate, I printed the stamps also from Crafster.org, on this link (it printed full page, so I had to copy in a smaller scale). The details imitating the seams on the leather were painted with acrylic paint. So I placed the tooth inside the bag, so Tooth Fairy can carry tonight. And, Tooth Fairy will leave a letter tonight, together with some change.
