Waiting for the tooth fairy to come is almost like waiting for Christmas morning …the magic or anticipating a fairy visiting your room feels the air and makes it almost impossible to fall asleep!
Those teeny, tiny teeth are so easily lost underneath a pillow … why not create a keepsake box to place on your child’s nightstand instead?
The top of this box as an easel that flips up, displaying a tooth chart. The sparkly brads keeps the easel in place, but the panel can also fold flat for storage.
Below the chart is a drawer, … the perfect spot to place the loose tooth and maybe even a note for the tooth fairy, thanking her for her hard work. The sparkly brad is not only a fun decorative touch, but serves as the drawer pull.
After the tooth fairy comes for her visit, she can leave payment inside the drawer.
Place the Tooth Fairy box inside a coordinating storage box to keep it protected until the next time you are ready to use it!
Hello Crafty Friends! I’m sure I have probably mentioned this a million times this month, but I’m going to say it again! Halloween is my favorite holiday. And it’s also my favorite holiday to get crafty for!
This year I revamped my entryway table with new decorations and created this Haunted Birdcage, created with the Haunted collection
, to go front and center!
I found the crows and glittery bats at the dollar store and the idea for this project was born!
On the floor of the birdcage, I cut a square of the orange dot Haunted Words Paper
. This helps the crow to stand out a bit. I also decorated the back of the cage with this panel.
Now it’s time to decorate the outside of the birdcage! On the front I created a cluster of elements using designs from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper
. I also added pumpkins made with the Outlined Pumpkins Die Set
. I wanted my pumpkins to be solid, so I adhered them to another sheet of orange cardstock and then carefully cut around them by hand.
I added a few glittery bats from the dollar store for even more spookiness!
I had so much fun making this project! I’m actually thinking of creating another one to go with it! I’m thinking a big fly or spider inside would be a creepy touch. Hehe!
Give it a try, it’s the perfect Halloween Home Decor project!
See you again soon!
Last year my daughter had to work on Halloween. She decided to make the most of it by dressing up. She pulled out one of her dance dresses, put on some spooky jewelry, and did her makeup up to look like a ghostly lady from a haunted house.
I love these pictures of her and needed some spooky paper to scrapbook them. The Carta Bella Haunted collection was perfect! Love the elegant feel of the patterns and colors of this collection!
First, I splattered the background with some gray Heidi Swapp Color Shine mist in the color called “Tinsel.” I love how it looks like stars in the night sky on this black felt cardstock.
The circle bat paper behind the photos kind of remind me of a big giant moon on Halloween night, don’t you think?
I clustered together a few stickers to the left of the photos here.
For the title I used two die sets, the “Scary Halloween Die Set” and the “Spooky Bat Die Set.” I double cut each word so that I could add a shadow behind them and make them stand out a bit more.
I wrapped the photo on the right with lots of white crochet twine … kind of looks like a spider web, right?! Love it!
Are you doing any scrapping this weekend? Why not catch up on a few Halloween memories?
One of my most favorite things about Halloween when I was a girl was the costume parade we held at our school every year. I loved seeing what my classmates dressed up as and enjoyed the magical and fun feeling of the day. The cute little monsters of the Halloween collection, remind me of adorable little trick-or-treaters dressed up to go from house to house collecting candy.
I decided to create decorative shadow box featuring these cute little monsters in a Halloween scene. Here is how it came together.
Next, I adhered the Element Stickers
to the different layers of the shadow box. The tree is adhered to the background layer using foam squares. The spiderweb, banner, and ghost are adhere to the green patterned layer in front of that one.
The witch and vampire are adhere to the black layer with the spooky tree. I used foam squares to lift them up a little bit more. And then finally, I adhered the frankenstein monster to the top green layer.
The front of the shadow box is decorated with even more stickers. I placed the “31” sticker on a 1 3/4″ punched black cardstock
circle, then adhere the circle, “Halloween” word, and the two pumpkin stickers with more foam squares.
To finish it off, I added a purple bow around the outer edge of the shadow box.
It’s going to look so cute adorning my side table! I can’t wait!
