How to Build this DIY Barbie Box

This construction of this box was super simple. Use the duct tape to connect your foam boards into a box, don’t worry about a bottom for the box. After you’ve assembled the box, cut out the opening for the front of the box. 

Wrap the outside of the box in hot pink wrapping paper and the inside of the box with white wrapping paper. Attach your barbie logo and custom name piece with tape or glue to the front of the box and that’s it! 

This life-size Barbie Box gives you such a huge return for a little bit of effort! Our girls loved having this box at our daughter’s 7th birthday party! The smiles on their faces and the photos we got were priceless!
