DIY Circus Tent Favor Box

Today we are back with a circus-themed party favor. This favor is perfect for a circus or carnival themed party. There is nothing that screams circus, like the “big top” so today I am sharing a circus tent box that you can use as a favor or as an amazing party decoration.

If you are not planning any circus or carnival parties, then this beautiful little gift box is also a great paper toy for your child to use with their animal toys. Tip – if you plan on using this as a DIY circus tent for your kids, try printing the template on an A3 paper. This will ensure that larger animals can fit in the tent. Also, remember to cut a door in the site for the animals to get in and out.

Cute Circus Tent Favor Box for Circus themed party

Materials

  • Printed Circus Tent Favor Box Template
  • Toothpick

Tools

  • Scissors
  • Glue

Instructions

  1. Download our FREE Circus Tent Favor Box template from the Freebie Library and print it out on cardstock.
  2. Cut out the template.
  3. Apply glue on one side of the flap where "paste here" is seen to connect the two body templates.
  4. Fold-down the bottom flaps of the body template.
  5. Now connect the remaining body flap together to create a round shape.
  6. Apply glue to the bottom flaps of the body and place the round shape base on top of it. The red part must be facing downwards and the white part upward.
  7. Get your flag template and glue it to the toothpick. For a personalized option use the flag as a little gift tag and write a guest's names on each flag.
  8. Now get your lid template and cut a small hole at the center part. Make sure the hole will fit the toothpick when inserted later on.
  9. Glue the flap of the lid together to create a cone-like shape.
  10. Insert the flag in the hole of the lid. You can apply glue to secure the flag.
  11. Cover the body with your lid.

That’s it! I really love how this template turned out. If you do not use the box as a favor box, then it’s also a cute way to serve some animal crackers, candy, or popcorn at your event.

Have Fun! Your kids will love making this circus tent as a paper toy or favor box for a Circus themed birthday party.
