I have a birthday coming up and wanted to make something cute for the kid. She likes fairies and stuff like that so I bought a craft box and filled it up with stuff for her.

The box: painted and decoupaged, I glued rhinestones with resin and added feet made from polymer clay. I painted the toenails with nail polish.

Inside the box!:

The bottles contain: starlight (green glitter), Words (page of text shrunk down), flower pollen (yellow beads), Robin Eggs (paper clay eggs painted blue), Earth (dirt), Pocket watch (teeny watch parts), Buttons (paper clay painted purple), Teeth (more paper clay), Yellow Petals (cut up silk flower), Blue Petals (same as yellow), Fairy Dust (white glitter), Gold and Silver (gold and silver painted teeny piece of a paper towel).

All the cord stoppers are superglued in and all bottles are glued to the inside of the box. I don't want her choking on anything just yet. When one of the stoppers kinda broke off at the glue part I cut the rest off the same so they match and it will be even harder for her to get into the bottles.

The book: Mostly Mean Fairies - I started writing cutesy stuff at first but got bored and it's basically a list of douchebag stuff that people do. I posted to complete list on twitter so friends could give me suggestions but no one did. I'm going to make more so if anyone has suggestions: http://twitter.com/mostlymean

I made the book and since I was making one, why not make 3 more, all the same. I gave two to coworkers with kids and am keeping the last one. I'll probably give it away eventually. The pages are made with scrapbook paper and regular paper. I added vintage pictures and more ephemera. Some pages and the cover were rubbed with a couple of ink pads for age and color.

Did I mention this kid is turning 3? Yeah I know, not quite age appropriate but I'm hoping her parents help her hang onto it.

Other stuff I put inside:

All the charms have extra stuff attached, beads, etc. The domino book had collaged pics in all the pages, I used scalloped scissors to cover up the non-straightness of the pages.

I kept the books with me for about 3 weeks writing in stuff, adding pictures, words and other stuff. I found the silly names by doing a google search for 'silly names' and found actual names that worked http://web.archive.org/web/20070203122818/http://www.cornwall.gov.uk/index.cfm?articleid=13791

If you have questions or want more pictures let me know soonest as I'm giving this to her this weekend or next week at the latest. C&C are welcome.

This is amazing! While a 3 year old might not appreciate it- her parents will for sure! Clearly I'm not hanging out with the right people 'cause no one ever gives my kids anything as cool as this!

Wow, so stunning and cool! A 3 yr old won't be able to appreciate it much, but I bet she'll love it so much when she's older, and her parents will hopefully love it too.

My mind is a circus of inspiration right now!  These are such wonderfully creative ideas.  I hope this little one has a great time in fairy land! 
My daughter is still a bit young, but I will probably do something like this for her in a few years.  It is absolutely precious.

~I love finding the beauty in common things.  Everything is magical in the right light~
