Here's a little Mini Altoids tin circus, featuring Dottie, a fine circus elephant performer. I removed the lid of the tin, and used it as a floor, where Dottie can perform.
Dottie is a tiny plastic elephant, but I made her a little hat and blanket to dress her up for her circus debut. The hat is made from Apoxie Sculpt, painted red with white dots. The little pom pom on top is a clear seed bead. The blanket is a little snippet of ribbon, with painted on white "fringe".
The flags are made with matchsticks and the same striped paper I used on the sides of the tin.

And there you have it, a tiny circus that can fit in the palm of your hand.
