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.
Then, pop the roof onto the assembled box base, and voila! You now have your very own cute little big top circus tent! Well done!
And they said that's all folks!
We hope that this tutorial has helped a great deal in understanding how to print and assemble our cute little circus tent! To check out more of our circus party printables, click here.
