Here is the bundle of goodies I sent my swap partner Tammy for the Vintage Circus Swap hosted by CasaBellaChic. I wanted it to be very bright and colorful and choose items accordingly.
There were lots of items, old and new alike, that seemed to fit so well together. As for sugary treats I sent Tammy some marshmallow Circus Peanuts, some blue edible Easter grass (loved the different colors of everything), a large green lollipop, a sweet ring pop, two packages of clown DecACake cake decorations, some multi-colored cotton candy in a monkey container and a few other little sweet treats that were tucked away in the animal eggs (like plastic Easter eggs but animals instead). Of course no circus swap would be complete without some Barnum’s Animal Crackers in the little train car box.
Now the litany of other items in the package…I found some paper cutouts of circus people and included them in the package along with a stuffed elephant, two vintage porcelain clown figurines, some colorful streamers, a variety of mini stamps including a really cute clown and a vintage sock doll clown.
I made up a wall hanging out of a round plaque that I painted pink with orange giraffe spots. Then I added a vintage circus image and painted a silhouette of a circus tent and added some red entrance tickets. To finish it off I added an orange striped hanger and bottom tie.
After I had it all packaged up to go I make this quick little card to send along with everything.
I’m glad it all got there safe and that my swap partner liked it. Now I’m just waiting to see what she sent me…she wrote that it was on its way, hopefully I’ll get it Monday and they let you all see what I got.
