My sister gave me a gigantic Altoids tin for Christmas, so of course I had to make it a circus. This bad boy is about three times the size of a regular tin, so with the wooden blocks it sits on and the clown head on top, this piece is a whopping 8" by 8". I enjoyed working larger for a change. There's room for three acts in there!

Here it is, with a quarter for scale:

And the back:


Most of the parts are from Alpha Stamps.  Smiley

Fabulous!  Are the bigger sized tins available for all?  It is like creating a mini scene but with a lot more room to expand for all the bits and pieces!

Love the feet..and the tiny tiny stars...not the clown... Sad Wink

What a wonderful BIG circus!! The little stars around the rim almost look like flashing lights.

I love all of it... even the clown Wink.

I have no idea where that huge tin came from. Maybe Costco or somewhere? One of my sister's co-workers gave it to her to give to me because they know I like tins.

Sorry about the clown, alwaysinmyroom, but you know you can't have a circus without them.  Cheesy

You will single handedly get me to love clowns, I am sure...I did not realize that when you said big that it was the size of a piece of paper!  wow...I love how you got so much depth...each time I see one of your pieces, it costs me money... Cheesy

It's wonderful! The little stars inside and around the edge, make it look like it has little twinkling lights.  Smiley
