1. Mask each part you color in a different shade to avoid colors running together or smudging. Then paint each box as you like and let it dry.
2. Mark and cut a circle to fit the lid of your box, out of the scrapbook paper from our Big Top Circus Printables. Make a slit from the edge to the center of the circle and fold slightly to form a dome. Stick edges with double-sided tape.
3. Once your box is dry, simply hot glue the paper domes to the lid of the box, and decorate the top of each box with a pom pom (from most craft stores). Use box to dish out candy or trinkets.
