This Claw Machine costume is so simple. Get a big Cardboard box, and slice seam with exacto so box is fully open and lying flat. Next, remove ‘tv screen’ size panels from 2 sides and front. Tape clear cello wrap cut to size on inside of openings.
On back panel behind head I put aluminum foil to give appearance of mirror. Then reassemble into boxes original shape and tape the cut seam closed. I wrapped the outside of box in red christmas paper & cut out openings carefully. Before taping the top of machine I put all her webkinz around her. I hung a whisk upside down and stuck a Shrek in inside. Won 1st place again.
