Dr. Who's TARDIS Telephone Box


Any Dr.Who fans out there?!? 
Well if you are, I think you love this project!

Hopefully my husband isn't paying much attention to my blog posts these days. 
Or he may just see the surprise I made him for Father's Day. 
Recognize it?

For those of you that don't, it is the TARDIS time machine and spacecraft from Dr. Who! 
Don't ask me anything else about the show though, I have no clue... in fact when I was growing up my brother would watch it and I would run away because it creeped me out. Well as is turns out my husband was also a big fan of the show, haha! 

Cool right?! 
Even for non fans, I love how it turned out!





This file is actually the London Telephone Box from a recent SVG Cuts kit, Travel the World.
But with a few simple alterations I was able to change it to the TARDIS Telephone Box.

Here is a screen shot of my alterations and panels with measurements for those interested. I did shrink the file slightly to use 8.5 x 11 inch paper as well.


I stamped the back panel with a stamp from Happy Celebrations - Craftin Desert Divas and added some fun enamel dots.


Here is a closer look.
For the telephone signs I did a print and cut on the Silhouette Cameo.


The box is large enough that I will be putting a small gift inside for a bonus surprise.

Take a look at it all lit up.
I just added a string of battery operated led lights to the bottom. You can also secure them to top as Mary did with the Telephone Box.


Hope this project has inspired you to create the Dr. Who's TARDIS Telephone Box for yourself or for that true fan in your life.

Happy early Father's Day to all Dads out there :)

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)
