Simonne says: When my daughter was young, I made her a matchbox style box to leave for the Tooth Fairy. She placed her tooth inside the box before she went to sleep and then in the morning she opened the box to find that the tooth had been replaced by a gift and a small envelope with a letter from the Tooth Fairy! Matchboxes are easy to make and decorate. Add a ribbon pull to the sliding part so that little fingers can easily open and close the box. I used the templates on pages 88 and 89 to create my matchbox, however you can create a matchbox in any size. I also made a small white envelope to fit the box and slipped a note from the Tooth Fairy inside. I decorated the box and envelope with stamped images from SugarPea Designs Fairy Sweet stamp set (£11 from Seven Hills Crafts), as well as patterned paper, glitter paper and ribbon.
