Girl Scout Suitcase Tin Perfect for Doll Play

Girl Scout Suitcase Tin

My daughters recently finished up a nut and candy sale for their Girl Scout Troops.  One of the items they were selling was this cute commemorative suitcase tin celebrating 100 years of Girl Scouts.  It came packed with yummy caramels. I originally bought one thinking the tin would be a cute keepsake for the girls.  However after we received it, I realized it is the perfect size for a doll suitcase.  My daughters have been enjoying letting their American Girl dolls go on vacation! So be sure to keep an eye out for these Girl Scout suitcase tins on eBay or in thrift stores.  It has been a fun addition to my girls’ collection of play things for their dolls.

Pretty Flower Winter Hat – Free American Girl Crochet Pattern

Do not join rounds unless noted. Use a safety pin or stitch … Continue reading

About AG Doll Crafts

American Girl Dolls

My two youngest daughters are avid American Girl Doll fans and I love making clothes and crafts for their dolls.  So far my daughters’ American Girl Dolls are Rebecca, Kaya, Samantha, and Kit.  Last summer, I acquired Julie so I didn’t have to keep sneaking a doll out of daughters’ room while they were asleep to try on clothes I was sewing.  Julie is one of my faves because she is from the year I was born! I started this blog to share AG Doll crafts and projects I have made, as well as to keep track of those great ideas that I want to make.
