I tried to portmanteau “Cardboard Tardis” and came up with “Cardboardis” or “Tardboardis”, both of which sound incredibly dumb.
My blogger friend Amanda had a surprise birthday party that she threw for herself (jk, you can’t throw a surprise party for yourself…or can you?) and my first thought was “I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT TO MAKE FOR HER” because she shares my same creepy obsession with Doctor Who. Sci-fi geeks are just ever so easy to get prezzies for.
I had been wanting to make a recycled Tardis box ever since I thought of the idea. I used cardboard boxes that were in the recycle bin at work (that were used to package light bulbs!) to make the box-frame.
I cut the lids of the boxes and create a little insert so that the lid of the Tardis would have something to hang on to. Like love handles. Hehe.
I mixed up a batch of darkish blue paint and painted the box blue.
Then I added some super-special details. Like words. Basically I’m speechless right now so I don’t know what to say.
Yay. Trust me. I’m the Doctor.
