My three little girls all love the American Girl dolls so we decided to make them all into Homemade American Girl Dolls Halloween Costumes themselves. We ordered each of them an American Girl logo t-shirt to wear from the American Girl website. This was the most expensive part of the costume.
We then went to a U-Haul rental place to pick out their boxes. We decided on the sports box. It is designed to pack a set of golf clubs. It seemed like the perfect size for them. We bought paint to match the original box. I traced a big bowl to help cut the circle in the front of the box. The stars on the sides and top were done with stamps that I made from some large sponges.
All of the lettering and white stars are full sheet sticker paper cut using an Ellison die cutter, similar to a Sizzix machine. Ask a scrapbooker if you do not know what those items are.
