A Circus in-a-Box

Hi all! Becky here today to share this silly little circus shrine I made from the Peek-a-View Box! I am on a total vintage circus kick right now & I just couldn't resist letting it spill over into some CC&M products & show you that you don't have to use these products strictly for what they were intended!
 The interior of box has tissue paper glued to the acetate & an old image of a circus poster from Graphic 45.
You'll notice that the unicycle girl is also holding a lollipop from CC&M. I colored it in with copics & then added some glossy accents to the candy portion.
I used some fun ribbon along the top of the box & some odds & ends at the very top. In order to make it look like one of the circus cars, I added the bottle caps with clown images from Graphic 45 inside.
 For the back, I used another poster image from Graphic 45.
The inside of the box is empty & all the edges are glued together with the Red Tacky Tape. I decided to make this more of a "shrine-type" box rather than a functional gift box.

That's it for today!
See you soon!
