New Cookie Cutter

New Cookie Cutter
Yesterday I received this cutter from a tinsmith. Before I can decorate it I need some advice. What would you do about the animals being the the same height as the giraffe?

I just read through all of these fabulous ideas @Econlady! So many great ideas and options to consider...I would be in a quandry with this cutter as well. But, it's fun, too. I'm a visual person and like how Gabi created a circus theme graphically. Whatever you decide to do my dear will be fabulous!! You are so creative and talented ❤️ I can't wait to see it

I love Michael Bonne cutters!  He designs and makes unique cutters with character.

Hi dear @Econlady, I just roughly tried to finish drawing the animals. Somehow they are all at different heights, as if they were distributed in the car. It looks like a circus train to me. ?example

You are amazing Gabi!!! ❤️

It's probably because he doesn't think they're going to the circus! He thinks they're being transported to the farm. lol...opinions.

He said "if they're going to the circus, what's a kangaroo doing there?" So, yes, you could make it a llama. It's all make believe anyway. It doesn't have to be totally true. I'm in the US and I don't think we'll ever see a circus again around here. He's in South America, and I don't think they'll see a circus again, either. Looking forward to your cookie! That's a beautiful cutter of the kind we don't see around anymore.

It was designed to be a circus truck.  I have a thing for circus cookie cutters.  A few years ago a sweet woman knew I liked her circus cutters and she mailed them to me.  It’s a very rare set because only a hundred sets were made.  I only met the woman once!  Thank you for your help!

I’m going to make the last one a llama.  The problem with a goat why would a circus have a goat?  A baby giraffe is more likely.  Thank you co much for your wonderful input!

You could make the last one an alpaca. I asked an agricultural engineer from the Andes (my cousin) "what is the animal next to the giraffe?" and he said "there's no giraffe there! It's a foal/pony (too small to be a horse), a goat, a llama, and an alpaca"  So maybe you can make it an alpaca? They're smaller than llamas.

I would also like to know.  I think the first one is a zebra, then kangaroo, then giraffe and last a tiger.  I’m really guessing.  How about a second giraffe.

today I’m going to play with it using your drawing.  I was thinking he could be standing on a bale of hay.  I could make him standing kind of tiptoe trying to look over the top.  Then I can have hay at different heights.  Still I’m not sure what to make the fourth animal.  Thanks again!

Thanks dear @Econlady ❤️😘
I think the 4th animal is a llama or alpaca, but it's too big for an alpaca ...
I'm looking forward to your cookie!

Thank you so much dear @Econlady ❤️😘 Yes, the kangaroo looks like this!...

I don’t know why I was seeing a horse, a goat, a giraffe and then I couldn’t guess the fourth one! That’s why I was confused about what’s a giraffe doing there.  

It’s a circus so they normally horses, tigers, lions, bears giraffes and elephants.  Choices are limited.

LOL, yes. I have a question: what’s the animal to the right of the giraffe? I want to know if they’re farm animals that met a giraffe somehow and are traveling to a nice place together.

Wow!  That’s amazing.  You are talented!  It looks like the kangaroo is floating!

I’m concerned about animals standing on boxes in a moving vehicle.  Am I over thinking it?  Thanks for the idea!

Make the other animals stand on boxes inside the cage?
