1st lost tooth and tooth fairy box

Patrick lost his first tooth today. We didn't even know it was loose until this morning. He was on the computer and all of a sudden started screaming "Mama guess what" I thought something was wrong the way he was screaming then he came out with a big grin say "my tooth is coming out". It was really loose too. I kept telling him to just wait but he was insistent that it had to come out NOW! Nick came home to help him with it. That is one thing I just can't make myself They worked at and worked at it with no success for awhile. Patrick thought it had to come out with a string. That didn't He was okay with the whole thing surprisingly until he finally got it pulled and he cried that it hurt. Finally got him calmed down and a photo take. When I started to put the towel back in his mouth he spotted the blood and FREAKED out!
He is impatiently waiting for the tooth fairy now..he wants to know how much she leaves. I told him it varies I think. He then said he is going to leave her a note because he wants more than a dollar. Seriously!! This boy is something

Here they are trying with they string.
Finally out!
I have been planning on altering this little altoid tin for him to use to leave his teeth for the tooth fairy. I had even already painted it but I just hadn't gotten around to finishing it. Well I had to get busy and finish He had already been asking for it because he knew my plans. I don't know why I kept putting it off it only took a few minutes to complete.
I used papers from my scrap box, a piece of ribbon to go around the edge of the lid, Colorbox alpha stickers and I free handed the tooth from chipboard. I popped the tooth up with some foam tape. I kept reaching for other things to do up the lid but he wouldn't have been happy with
This works for a couple of challenges as well.
2 Red Bananas-letter stickers
Cafe Mojo-chipboard

I hope you all have a great weekend. I have gotta go we are going to see a movie in the park again tonight. I am going to hate to see these end, next week is the last one. It is always so much fun.
