Circus Night Light

My newest grandson is moving into his new room with a circus theme and how wonderful that Digital Delights by Louby Lou has come out with a new series of images with a circus theme.  I used quite a few of the new images which are listed below in the project recipe with direct links to the store.

Circus Tickets Sentiment Set, Buttons the Clown and Cannonball Buttons

Popcorn the Monkey and Roley the Ringmaster

Buttons the Clown Notice Board

Hand Stand Coco the Clown and Circus Stand

I used all the new Circus digi papers as well.  I cut strips and then used my Fiskars Paper Edgers to make different edges. For the window panes I used two different MS edge punches.

Project Cutting Instructions:
  • Cut two panels with your main card stock 7 1/2 by 10 1/2.  Score at 5" and 10".  This gives you a 1/2" flap for gluing to the other panel.  Turn the paper lengthwise and score at 1/2" for the flap that folds under and glues to the base.  Cut out any shape and size window you want. Add your images and have fun here!
  • Cut one base of very heavy card stock (I used the backing to a paper pad) 5" by 5".  You will glue the completed panels to this base.  Glue your chosen stand items to the bottom of the base. I used wood beads.
  • For the lid I made a template of a triangle with a 5 1/2" bottom and a 3 1/2" rise. Cut 2 of these and wait to glue them together when you have finished embellished them.  The template should look like this:
