DIY: Finger Puppet Theater

I purchased some cute finger puppets from Amazon for my niece as part of her birthday gift.
I didn't want to just give her the puppets, so I decided I would make her a quick puppet theater. I wanted one that would be very girly, can stand up on it's own (on a table top), and could fold up easily for storage. I decided to use and old priority mail box I had lying around. I cut the tops and bottoms off. I then cut down the middle of one of the panels and then cut a square opening on the other.

I covered the entire box (inside and out) in scrapbook paper (I used K & Co. WB Gypsy Baby Paper Pad which is no longer available). Then I used one of the long top flaps I had cut off earlier and used it as a sign on top. I used some glitter chipboard letters. I also used some white tulle scraps I had and some ribbon to create the curtains. For the curtain rod I used a chop stick.
My niece really liked her new puppet show stage.
