How To Turn An Amazon Fire TV Box Into A Monster High Doll Bed #tutorial #monsterhigh @amazon

My niece got us an Amazon Fire TV for Christmas this year. It is pretty damn cool and we love it. But this post is not about that. I noticed the box was pretty cool with it's overhead compartment which had housed the power cord. In the past I have saved boxes thinking I would do something with them but end up tossing them a few weeks later during a clean up purge.  Not this time!

Last month I grabbed the box while waiting for my daughter to finish reading her homework to me and stated playing with it. I must have tried about 15 different configurations before settling on the one that would eventually become a bed for Monster Toralei.

The box!

Settling on the layout

I taped the sides down

At first I thought the legs would be made of crayon then worried about marks on the furniture

So I rolled up some magazine strips with a pencil and wrapped it with the tape
The legs

Ta Da...legs!

Next I measured some foam sheets to go with the bed colors

And hot glued it down. I also hot glued at this point the sides of the bed and added a coordinated bed for the cabinet

We added a strip of the foam across the top

A Monster High banner as decoration

And Toralei now has a bed

We had another box saved and at the moment I can't remember what came in it but we made a little shadow box for a Valentine's photo which I have yet to print out but will post as soon as I do.

Great box! I had some letters from a Staples Giveaway I won

We decided on LOVE and used some Scotch Dots to hold them on

We love the way it came out. Photo of Handsome and Goddess going in as soon as I can print it
