I’ve wanted to make a costume version of our Toilet Paper Roll Llama Craft ever since I made the little guys. And this year, with our Playful Cardboard Costume Contest, I thought it the perfect time to finally do it. It was fun and easy and only took a couple of cardboard boxes, some ribbon and a bit of paint!
Miss M was utterly delighted by her new pet llama! She kept running around the room saying “giddy-up!”. Cutest thing ever really. Now all I have left to do is make her a Tiny Traveler Tilda costume so she can explore Machu Picchu with her alpaca friend.
