I haven’t made a Boxtroll (yet), but I found some very creative bloggers who have. To help get those creative juices flowing, here are some Boxtroll ideas.
Inspired by a love for American Girl, This Mama Loves‘ daughters turned their dolls into Boxtrolls.

Doesn’t the event look like fun?!
A family event movie from the creators of “Coraline” and “ParaNorman” that introduces audiences to a new breed of family – The Boxtrolls, a community of quirky, mischievous creatures who have lovingly raised an orphaned human boy named Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright) in the amazing cavernous home they’ve built beneath the streets of Cheesebridge. When the town’s villain, Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs decides to venture above ground, “into the light,” where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnifred (Elle Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family.
