CDD Cafeteria bar tutorial!

Hey Guys! I came up with this tutorial for a cafeteria bar which I am using for CDD. I hope you like it!
 You will need: an old shoe box(or any box), scissors, tape, a hot glue gun, a big sheet of clear plastic, and tin foil.
 First, cut your box right below your dolls knee, like shown.

 Cut down the long side at the top.
 Next, cover the box with tin foil and cut carefully down the slit you cut before.
 Then, pull the foil gently down to the inside and secure with tape.
 Cut three strips of cardboard long enough to reach your dolls armpit when glued to the back of your other piece, and cover them with foil.
 Glue them on.
 Then, do the same as you did with the first strips but make them about two inches longer, then glue them on, like shown.
Measure your piece of plastic to the size of your bar, insert it in the cut you made and glue it there and at the top. Also, cut a piece of cardboard that fits across the top, cover it with foil, and glue it on like shown.
 Measure a piece of cardboard that fits in the middle of your bar, cover it with aluminum foil, and glue it in.
 Lastly, measure pieces of plastic for the sides and glue them on.
 And you are finished! Now your dolls can line up in the cafeteria to get their food!

 Look at all the yummy food!
 Lanie says she's hungry!

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial! Thanks for reading!
