challenge project for fantabulous cricut

 hi everyone today I am entering into the challenge over at
it is all about the tooth fairy. I thought this would be kinda cute. The skeletons teeth worked perfect for this money pocket. I made the pocket using spring holiday cards cart cut at 4.75 in then cut a plain yellow piece to glue on the back where the seam is instead of front. I folded the bottom flap to show and added a handprinted tag with some sticker buttons. Now for decoration I cut a strip of poka dotted paper and glued on top of yellow the skeleton is from rock princess cart cute at 4in
the tooth brush and tooth are cut from b is for boy cart. Now this would be easy to slip under a pillow with the money inside the crown keeps flap shut.
heres what it looks like with flap open and now you can see the strip of poka dot how it doesnt go all the way to the top. added bling and google eyes and here you have it. a tooth fiary pocket. hugs
