- Empty Film Container or Pill Bottle
- Acrylic Paint
- White Con-Tact Paper
- Clear Acrylic Spray
- Craft Glue
- Paint Brush
Start out by painting the film container or pill bottle, including the lid. Let the paint dry.
Draw a small molar shape, about an inch high, on white Con-Tact paper. Cut it out and stick it to the side of your container. Now seal the container and lid using several light coats of the clear acrylic spray. Make sure you cover your work surface before spraying and make sure you are in a well ventilated area.
Cut a piece of ribbon, about 20-inches long. Tie it around the side edge of the lid of the container and secure it with some glue. Tie the ribbon in a nice bow. Trim the ends if they are too long, and place a dab of glue on the knot so it stays tied. Set the tooth saver aside to dry.
Once the glue is dry, the tooth saver is ready to be used!
