*Use a box that is big enough to put over your child’s head and it should come to the knee, or just below the knee. The same goes if you are making this as an adult costume. Use a box cutter to cut out the front of the box so it looks like a window box that a Barbie Doll would come in, but leave an area for the Barbie and Mattel logos. As seen in the picture above.
*Spray paint the box hot pink by first bringing it outside or to a well-ventilated area.
*Line the inside of the box with pink construction paper.
*Use ropes to attach to the box so your little girl can wear the box like a backpack while she is inside of it.
