Life-Size American Girl Doll Box
We had just purchased a small shelf unit from Ikea (similar to Expedit, but blue with four squares) to put in Riley's room next to her bed. The box was the perfect size to make a fun party photo prop for Riley's party.
I figured out where we needed a hole for their faces and then drew a large circle around the bottom of a bowl to make it large enough for it work. Then cut it.
I laid it outside in the garage on top of another large piece of cardboard. I had never used Rust-oleum before and really loved it!! I sprayed several coats within a few minutes of each other. I tried to spray somewhat lightly so it wouldn't run.
|The sprayed box|
|Three large strips. The bottom has a fold in it.|
Once that was done, I added white duct tape along the sides and around the circle.
Once that was done, I used the remainder of the AG bag to create stars for the sides of the box. I used a cookie cutter as it was all I had to make sure they were the same size!
|There is always one white star so I simply|
turned the star over as the inside of the bag
Once that was done, the girls tested it out!
