This is a redo of a set from Christmas- so not too long ago, but I was really excited to do it again. The original set was a last minute request for a Christmas gift for a dentist and thought I was generally happy with it, I felt burned out on Christmas by the time is came along and I didn't have much left in the way of creative juices. I ended up doing more Christmas and less teeth. So this time around I really wanted to up the focus on the dentist aspect and also add to the humor and fun of the set! 

I did a little more playing around with my cookie cutter (originally a tulip) to create a better looking tooth. I also added the crowns to a few because they were a gift for a dentist who had helped someone with a crown (and I thought it was funny)! I also wanted to teeth to have a bit more personality, so I changed up their faces. I tried to do a little more outlining to get sharper lines and especially a better shape with the lips - which is something I sometimes forgo when I'm in a rush. 

I have a fear of/am not very good at writing on cookies, so I overcame that and freehanded the "toothpaste" and then used my new Pico projector to do the smile - which has now taken away all my fear!

Lastly I added in the open mouths - which I almost didn't do, but it ended up being my favorite part of the whole set!

I love this.  Especially the *open up wide* cookie. Hahahaha!

Thanks!! Hah- I originally thought the open-wide ones were maybe too weird when I drew them out, but ended up really liking those in the end!

Great to see you back with another entry! Both sets are super cute!

Thank you! It was a week of redos apparently!   But it was really fun to think about it in regards to the challenge! It was my first time participating and I definitely look forward to doing more of them

Thanks!! How fun-these would be perfect for her!! Yes floss is definitely  on my list to adate to this set if I ever do another redo! I also wanted to do those little mirrors they use.

Great set! I think maybe you need to redo this multiple times - "A tooth for All Seasons!" I think your writing turned out great, as did you "open wide" design.  I love when a creative risk pays off!  

Thank you!!! I think writing will always scare me, but trying to just do it! Teeth for all Seasons- I LOVE that idea I am now picturing teeth with cupid bows and arrows, teeth in uncle sam's hats, teeth in Halloween costumes - lol I think we're on to something here!

Go For It!    

A set with personality. Love the hidden jokes, Anne Marie's 'open wide' and of course the crown.  Great repurposing.  This makes me happy.
