Dangling from heavy-duty button thread, these circular circus entertainers are ready to perform their acts at the whim of the slightest breeze. They’re particularly susceptible to air currents because they’re made of paper, like all the mobiles on these pages. You don’t have to be an artist to create this big-top circus. Simply cut out the figures on the card insert that follows to make the acrobats, clown, strong man, and ringmaster.
Even if you can't make it to a friend or family member’s baby shower, you can still celebrate the joyous event. Enter the themed "shower in a box" -- a gift idea devised by Martha Stewart Living crafts editor Jodi Levine for parents-to-be who live far away. Mail a carton loaded with toys, nursery decor, keepsakes, funky baby staples, cute party things, and thoughtful treats for the mom. Top it all off with a bright helium-filled Mylar balloon to float up and out of the box -- like magic -- when she opens the package.
