Tooth Fairy Doorhanger

Aimee got her first wobbly teeth this week, I say teeth as she had not one but two which is typical Aimee style she does everything earlier she's only 4. I thought I would make her a little box to put under her pillow for the tooth Fairy, whilst searching the net for ideas I came across the idea of a box on a door hanger. This is my version of it.
I cut out a rectangle of chipboard and then rounded the corners with my corner chomper and cut a circle out with my nesties. On Aimee's orders everything had to be sparkly and pink so I have used papers from MME Penny Lane stack as they are all lovely and glittery.I found a colouring in picture of the tooth fairy and scaled it down to size and coloured it with my promarkers, I added some stickles to her wing and the pattern on her dress. I then added some pale pink gems to the pattern. The tooth has a coat of 3d gloss on it . The poem I found on the net again and printed it out on some white card and then cut to shape with my nesties labels and then added a border of stickles around the edge.

This little box is an origami box made following these instructions, to decorate I have the punched a circle from the DP and added a pretty brad  to use as a handle and put some pink gems in the corners.
Just in case you were wondering one of Aimee's teeth fell out on Tuesday and the tooth fairy found it very easy to use this door hanger and Aimee now has some shiny pennies to spend.
I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
Fab n Funky - What'eva ( I would also like to be considered for the DT)
Craft Your Days Away -Girly n Glitter
Charisma Cardz Challenge - Something new ( First time I've made a door hanger)

That is wonderful and sure to be a hit, so much easier for the tooth fairy to find the tooth! I think they would be a huge seller for anyone doing fetes and fairs.
