DIY American Girl Doll Shopkins Blind Bags
Shopkins have been around for a while now and we’ve always gotten requests to make them for our dolls. I’ve always pushed the thought aside because regular Shopkins are already so tiny! To make them for our dolls they would have to be teeny! However, we’ve been using tweezers in some of our crafts just to hold small things in place and that’s when I thought we should give the Shopkins a try. This is an adorable craft. If you don’t want to make all the individual Shopkins to go in each bag, you can stick a bead in the bags to make them look unopened. That way you can keep all your crafted Shopkins out for display.
- Shopkins Blind Bag Printables
- Craft Paint
- Craft Foam
- Puffy Paint
- Scrap Paper
- We used glossy photo paper and peeled off the top layer to get the blind bag feel. However, a good substitute would be regular printer paper and cover each blind bag with packaging tape. You will get the same affect but they will be slightly stiffer.
- If you want a lot of blind bags but don’t want to make each Shopkin just to hide away in the bags, use beads. Put different shaped beads in each blind bag so they look full!
