All You Need Is Love Circus

 I am a proud new member of the Gecko Galz Design Team! What a fantastic way to start the New Year!

Very excited to get started by using the different elements from Gecko Galz New Love Potion No 9 Digital Kit Club

I created a Circus for my sample for this month's "All You Need Is Love" Customer Challenge!

The different challenges each month are fun & will get your creativity going! Come play along with us! The winner receives a $25 Gecko Galz Shopping Spree!!

 Have Some Fun!
Hope You Enjoyed The Love & Stop Back Soon!
I found the Circus template here .
 I used "A Ladies Diary" designer paper from graphic 45 to create the Circus Tent.  
Tacky glue was used with small clothespins to hold it to form until dried.
I also cut out paper circles for use as bases under my tent & wine cork display stands, to give them more support.
  I was having fun with this project & was determined to go outside the box & create it with what I had on hand!
 I made the little CIRCUS banner, and hot glued it to red & white bakers twine. Tied each end to a wooden ka-bob stick.
 Now I needed a way to hold it up above my circus! 
I accomplished this with 2 paper cups. But they would not stay upright without any help.. 
So I hot glued a small rock inside each to add weight & hold the paper cups up & allow me to spread & string my banner across the length of my circus.
 The kabob sticks were pushed thru paper cups & hot glued in place, for little embellishments-pink bows was added to top of sticks with hot glue.
 Valentine Pierrot's were added to sticks & front of  paper cups with hot glue. 

Embellished Wine corks were used to create display stands, so I could add more Pierrot's to the circus! 

In the end I was happy with my first paper circus!
