I made an exploding Tooth Fairy Box
for the tooth fairy to leave money in exchange for that tooth. I was inspired to make this exploding box after seeing it on Miriam's BLOG.
I started with my white panel 5 5/16 x 5 51/6.
I stamped it all over using the new
Build A Background - Basics

Using the Envelope Punch I punched and scored at 1 5/8 and 3 3/4.
Next I rotated the paper and lined up on the score lines and punched and scored all around.
I rounded all the pointed flaps using the outside punch on the Envelope Punch Board.
This gives it a more finished look.
After I folded all the score lines,
I made a score line in the little triangle in between the flaps. I scored in the center of it down to the tip of the triangle. This will be folded in a valley fold, it takes the place of cutting and pasting to make the box.
Now here is what the box looks like open.
I made a belly band to hold the box together.
I cut a strip of cardstock 3/8 x 7 3/4. I made a heart strip using the SugarCuts Heart Border Die that I adhered to my belly band. I wrapped the band it around the box and folded the creases as I went.
Here is how I extended my heart border to be the length I needed.
First I only cut up to the last 3 hearts.
Here you can see I did not cut all the way through at the end.
I lined up the die where it left off, layed my B plate
just under that so it would cut after that area so it would connect.
Here you can see how much I extended it beyond the die.
Love this die.
Now for the topper.
I cut out two circles using SugarCuts Layered Treat Labels Die Set. Then I stamped one with this adorable Tooth Fairy seal using the new release Fairy Sweet. I heat embossed using this fabulous ZING Flourescent Neon Pink Embossing Powder that my sweet friend Judy Rozema sent me. This is my first chance to use it. It is awesome stuff, thank you Judy.
I adhered the two circles with 1/8" thick of dimensional tape.
Then adhered the whole topped to the belly band using score tape.
I love how that heart border looks using the metallic paper.
I just love how it looks when it is open.
