fun box for special occasion

I made this box from the CTMH Artiste cartridge. I had cut the lion and the 'wild about u' and was wondering what to do with them when I saw this box which just looked so much like a circus tent!! I cut it in red and then CAREFULLY cut the white stripes for the top of the 'tent'. I threaded bakers twine in the holes at the top and then through a small piece of a straw. when you pull the piece of straw up the 'big top' opens and can be filled with goodies. Instead of glueing the side of the box I pierced it with my 'pokie stick' and laced the bakers twine up and tied it so that it looked like the side opening of the circus tent.
