I know there are some clown haters out there, so look away!

I used a tiny Altoids tin for this little circus. It's possible I went overboard with the glitz, using tinsel, glitter, shiny stars, and Dresden trim, all in this small space (it's just 2 1/2" by 3 3/4"). But isn't the circus always bigger than life?


The base of the tin is actually an old rubber tip from a toy arrow. I got it in a bag of old wooden toys I found in a thrift store. I'm sure someone laughed when they put that old piece of crap in the bag as filler, but who's laughing now?  Cheesy

Here's the back, with that gorgeous bald clown head. Gotta love it.

Yay!  I don't have the common clown aversion, and I love it.

Tiny. The only size a clown should be.
