Tooth Fairy Cart and Tutorial

It's the first Friday of March... and that means a new tutorial from little old me for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.

Last week I had a very interesting letter from the Department of Tooth Fairy Affairs. It seems that there is spike in tooth loss and the Tooth Exchange Fairies (the troop who preform the tooth/reward transactions) are having a hard time keeping up with the demand.

They asked very nicely if I might come up with a wee cart design, something to help with the transporting of goods, while remaining true to the Tooth Fairy Dress, Appearance and Conduct Code. (Fairies like to be very official.) I was happy to oblige.

With a Bagatelle BoxWheels, and Keys & Plates Shape Set from Gypsy Soul, some scrapbook paper, doweling, glitter and trims... I set to work.

In no time at all I had assembled a tiny cart fit for a fairy! And while this one is intended to assist the Tooth Fairy Department with distribution and exchange, I'm sure that it would come in handy for other fair folk to exchange sweets, flowers, seeds, and cake crumbs too.

To create your own little cart, hop over to the YouTube Tutoral to see how I put this simple little cart together. Or just jump down to the very bottom of this post.

  1. I love this little project! So pretty and something that could be modified to many different themes! Thanks so much for this fun tutorial!

  2. I'm in love...again...going to make this one..what kind of glitter did you use?

    1. It's just a clear glitter (looks white in package but it's made up of clear bits) from the kids craft aisle at Michaels. I believe the brand is Creatoligy. Stickles would work well too. Really, you could use whatever you like.

  3. Oh my gosh is this the cutest little creation ever!! I want to make it :)
