How to Assemble our Circus Big Top Tent Party Favour Box

In this tutorial, we will learn how to cut out and assemble the Circus Big Top Tent Favour Box that has just been released by The Digi Dame Party Shoppe and can be found right here.

This printable box is generous in size. Once assembled, it measures approximately 15cm (or 5.9inches) in height (that is including the flag attached at the top). And the width is around 11cm, or 4.3 inches.
 
The circus tent is set out on 3 separate pages. One page contains the tent roof. The second page consists of the two tent walls, and the third page contains the flag and two circular bases. You can see how the pages are set out in the image below.

All three files are in PDF format, and are downloaded enclosed in a zipped folder after purchase. Here is how to unzip files from zipped folders. 

We offer this printable as an instant download, meaning you can download it immediately after purchase! Then, open it in the latest version of Adobe Reader, and print straight away!

 
Print Your Tent
1. We recommend printing on crisp white card stock of at least 200gsm, or thick photo paper. In our example, matte card stock has been used.  Print at Actual Size.

When printed, your pages will appear as shown above.

2. You will need: a pair of scissors and glue or tape

Cut out your tent parts along the outline. Then cut along the tabs using the dashed lines as your guide. You should end up with pieces that look like those in the image below.

3. Fold and secure the tent roof with glue or tape, by sticking the white tab side beneath the white piece on the other side (where the gap is cut out of the circle), as shown below.

You will end up with a pointed roof in a cone shape. Then fold the scalloped edges downward. See the image below for how your roof should look. Set the tent roof aside for now; we will pick it up later.

5.
Now it is time to assemble the tent walls. Firstly, fold down the tabs at the base of each wall, as shown in the picture below.

Then stick the walls together at the end tabs, to make one long wall. It will appear like this:

Now bring the other ends around to form a cylinder and stick them together, like the image below. Now you have your walls assembled.

Make sure the tabs on the bottom of the wall are folded flat. Next we attach the wall to the bases of the box.



6. Glue the bottom tabs to the white base, which is the outer base and will sit on the very bottom of the box.

Then, adhere the red base to the inside of the tent wall, as shown in our pictures below.

7. Now that the main parts of your circus tent box have been assembled, it is time for the tiny details! Now you can create your cute little big top flag. In this tutorial, we have used a toothpick for our flag. Simply stick the paper to the stick and roll slightly.

Once your flag is ready, simply push the toothpick into the top of the tent roof.
