Over at the Inspiration Emporium they are having a packaging challenge that I thought would be a good one for me to enter since I used Grunge Board packaging to make this Le Cirque box using Graphic 45 paper.
The box is from Maya Road, I removed the hardware (I'll use it at another time) and a plastic window from the top. I added different hardware and covered the box with paper. I cut a piece of Grunge Board packaging to fit the window opening. I then covered the packaging with black cardstock and glued it to the inside of the lid. This gave the lid a 3D effect.
Hopefully the last pic will not be too blurry as it is a close up of the effect. I also used a piece of clear packaging to back the clown so he would stand up where I wanted him. I put the Lion Tamer in the background with the clown in the center and then added a toy elephant that I got at Michael's. The ringmaster has been dressed up a bit with some Stickles lightly painted on the cape, brads on the buttons, feathers on his hat and shoes and gold Flowersoft on the cuff & shoes. Hope you like it! Stay tuned for the mini that will live inside the 3 ring circus.
