Hello! Tegan here today and I am happy to be sharing my latest creation using the lively Circus Party collection! The color combination in this collection is just loads of fun! When I first saw all of the bright colors and the cute animal dies, I knew I wanted to somehow work a carousel into my next project. When I ran across an old craft paint can, I wondered if I could somehow turn this into a fun carousel! I originally wanted to make this as a fun gift box for a child, but it’s really cute enough to set out in a child’s room as well. So grab some animal crackers and hold on tight! Here are instructions to make your very own paint can carousel!
Since my craft paint can has clear plastic sides, I lined the inside of it with the Circus Animals patterned paper. This gives the inside an added bonus of cute circus train print. And the bright and fun yellow polka dots shows through the clear sides of the can.
I then glued some fun red and white paper straws I had on hand to the outside of my bucket. I spaced them 2 1/4″ apart. Tip: I used a very thin line of Glossy Accents down the back of each straw. This gave me enough adhesive to hold straw in place on the plastic, without excess adhesive running out the sides. And I only had to hold the straws in place for a few seconds. I then used a scallop border punch and teal star patterned paper to make a top border for my carousel. I then accented border with a strip of red patterned paper. I used the diamond designed border sticker for the bottom front of my carousel.
I cut out the animals using the fun Animal Set 1 Die Set and the Animal Set 2 Die Set. These dies are seriously adorable! This giraffe and lion make perfect little circus animals for my carousel! Both of these die sets would make great die cuts for zoo layouts as well. Tip: I cut out 2 of each animal and used foam adhesive to elevate the top animal. I also off-set the top animal slightly for added interest.
I then threaded matching buttons with yellow embroidery floss and added them to my carousel animals. The bear and seal also make perfect little carousel animals, don’t you think?
I then tied a large bow to the handle using this fabulous red and cream striped ribbon from May Arts. It is just perfect for my carousel! I then added the elephant sticker and embellished it with a button and white curling ribbon. To finish off the lid, I adhered a yellow polka dot patterned paper circle and sentiment sticker.
Thanks for joining us today! I hope I have inspired you to incorporate a carousel into your next project!

First off, you will want to cut out all of your animals and start arranging them on your background piece of paper. I used the 6×6 Paper Pad from the Circus Party Collection to cut out my animals so I wouldn’t have to cut into all of my 12×12 sheets of patterned paper. If you like how I arranged mine, you can copy that. Just scroll down to see the arrangement of my animals.
Now have fun adding pictures and embellishing!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and I hope you enjoy creating with these fun new dies cuts as much as I have. Until next time!

Hello, Carta Bella Paper fans! Stacey here today with a wedding card using the new Rustic Elegance Collection!
The Rustic Elegance Collection is gorgeous…perfect for wedding and summer-themed cards, really anything feminine. The name of the collection says it all…it has gorgeous rustic patterns with splashes of elegance that will make you swoon! I adore the romantic patterns in this collection!
Designer Tip: Adding Texture
To create even more romance and depth to your paper project, use an embossing folder…the texture and luxury it adds is amazing! I used the Embossing Folder – Doilies to a subtle print for the background panel of this card…just a tease of texture, so to speak.
Here is the supply list that I used to create the greeting cards!
